Army To Cancel HMMWV Recap Program

Posted by Minuteman1636 on January 26, 2012 at 10:20 AM Comments comments (1)

Although the title of the article is 'Army cancels Humvee Recap, places bets on JLTV', the article states the program is only being reduced in order to use the money to fund the purchase of vehicles from the JLTV program.

I added a 193 photo walk-around of an M1025R1 Armament Carrier that I took today. You will find the album in Model & Vehicle photo page.

I added a 15 photo review of the REAL MODEL M1037 HMMWV Shelter. Mine has a casting fault and is missing some parts. I will let you know if I'm able to get it replaced by the vendor or manufacturer. You will find it on the ' Real Model' page in the Model Kits & Accessories section.

I added a 33 photo layout of a 'legacy' HMMWV pioneer tool kit. YOu can see it in the 'HMMWV Features' section

TAC Scale Dynamics

Posted by Minuteman1636 on November 26, 2010 at 7:20 PM Comments comments (2)

I stumbled across an aftermarket resin engine set on Ebay. The engine set was made by a company called TAC Scale Dynamics.

 

From what I have been able to determine is that this company went out of business. I have added the company/item to the website and included the ebay listing image.

 

This is the first time I have seen this product in all my years of modeling so I 'borrowed' the image in order to capture the history/existence of this product.

 

Check out the item in the TAC Scale Dynamics section.

 

If you have anymore information about the product or the company, please let me know.


Thanks,


Brent
