TAM 4500 DV

(1/5) > >>

This truck was made in former Yugoslavia, it has it use in military and in civil purposes as well. It was made in TAM factory ( Tvornica Avtomobilov Maribor, now Slovenia ) and it was an Magirus-Deutz design produced by lycence. It has 4 cylinder air cooled diesel engine 85 Hp, it could carry 4.5 tons load on road and 2.5 tons off road, it has all wheel drive. There was many variants of this truck made ( variants such as 2x4 and with many different carrier variants, later on with V6 engine ) this model is build mostly for military with a winch mounted in front.

This is testing of TriglavModels resin 3D printed kit, 1/35 scale, by this I would like to thank TriglavModels for provided model.

First I started with chassis, after cleaning started the build. It need a lot of dry fittings, have to pay a lot of attention to be sure of parts gluing place, I suggest you go only one at the time, but the parts are surprisingly good fitting ( well designed ). Due to accuracy the parts are very thick and fragile, I learned on the hard way, managed to broke a few pieces but nothing too bad, all easy repair ( my fault, didn't pay attention on manufacturer warning about this... )

Here is the progress so far

Good to see it, so Triglav is still alive? They contact me many years ago, the need some data about M-60 armor vehicle.


Thank you !

The chassis is done, I only added a few pipes made of brass wire of my own  ( except the exhaust pipe, it's given in the set as brass wire only job was to cut it on size, measures are given in the instructions ) the only " big " scratch are the cardan shafts, they were not in the test speciment of the kit but will be provided in kit. About the kit I can say so far so good

Detailed work at all
