Patriot Radar Tracking trailer

12 posts in this topic

Started a radar tracking unit to go with my AFV Club  HEMTT tractor and Patriot missile launching trailer.  Not a lot of progress yet.

More progress.  Trailer pretty much complete except for axles, wheels and tires and of course the radar unit itself.

Thanks Phil

 

Thanks Sonofjim

 

It's just as big as the Patriot launching trailer so I'm not sure where it's going to get parked.

The trailer is complete and the radar unit is just sitting for now.  Hope to have some paint by the weekend.

It may get an overall coat of Tamiya NATO Black tomorrow and then the usual green and brown later.  I'll try to match my HEMTT tractor and Patriot Launching trailer so hopefully they turn out as the complete outfit.

Don't know where I can put all three together as my display cabinet shelves are rather too small so they would be pretty cramped, if they even fit.  Should have maybe built this trailer with the outriggers up in the travel position.  Too late now of course.

AFV Club HEMTT 983 Tractor and Patriot launching trailer with Trumpeter radar tracking trailer.  The radar trailer needs decals, some more

dry brushing on the radar screen and an overall light dusting to match the other two.  Otherwise it's pretty much complete and a lot

simpler build than the launching trailer.

Pretty much finished except for the tail light lenses I forgot to paint and install.

 

Tried to match the weathering on the launching trailer and it turned out close but maybe still a little too dark and needs more dust.

 

Big trailers and a tight squeeze in my cabinet but they do both fit on the same shelf as the HEMTT tractor,  that shelf is full.......
