I did a small update tonight. I added 12 photos of a TAC Scale Dynamics resin HMMWV engine that I was able to find on Ebay. These are intended for the Academy HMMWV's.

I'm not doing a very good job blogging!! LoL.


My site members get regular emails from me when I make updates but I don't seem to do a very good job 'blogging' about them.


Tonight, I added a few more MCTAGS turret photos and I added a couple of M1114 photos in the M1114 album.


I have several more 'public release' TM's to post. I will try to get that done in the next couple of days.

I also added three photographs of a previously unseen SEAL GMV turret configuration. Check it out in the HMMWV Turret Configurations page.

M998 TOW Missile Launcher Kit From KIM's PLA Model

Posted by Minuteman1636 on December 27, 2010 at 1:02 AM Comments comments (0)

I bought a kit off of ebay for my HMMWV collection. It is titled M998 TOW Missile Launcher which is an incorrect title. The kit should have been titled M996 TOW Missile Carrier.


The kit is/was manufactured in South Korea. Check out a couple of box top photos on the KIM's PLA Model page. I will take photos of the kit contents and provide additional information at a later date.

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.
