    That is quite superb Ralf, and you’ve brought it together so quickly, it has a real character.  It’s both ugly and beautiful at the same time lol.

    Cabins outside is finished. Just a bit interiour needed.

     

    At last I’ve found the appropriate loading:  An old selfmade Yarrow Steamboiler

    Lovely work Ralf – I hope that the Steambolier is in working condition too! 🙂

    Thank you. Unfortunately the boiler is leaky and unusable. But it‘s a fine load 🙂

     

    in the little video you can see the winching of the load:

    And I’m a bit proud about the real working tiny scale chain tensioner. The boiler is only fixed by two of them.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Yipiiiee! First Testdrive was successful. Just a few minor imperfections were found.</p> 388FE91F-EE89-4E80-9640-119C624966DF A lot of little, more optical, things to do, but the main things doing very well. I‘m very pleased with this result.

     

    that’s a really strange truck…

    that’s a really strange truck…

    Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP). The bottom of the cab is v-shaped, thereby deflecting exposions from land mines to the sides and protecting the occupants. First invented by the Rhodesians during the bush war if I’m not mistaken, but later perfected in South Africa during the border war.

    The Samil 50 is essentially a Magirus Deutz 4×4 5-ton truck (I actually drove one of these in 1988 or 89). This particular variant of the Samil 50 is a regular Samil 50 with a completely new cab, which is mine-resistant because of that v-shaped hull. Oh and there’s a Samil 20 too. The 20 is also a 4WD Magirus Deutz, but only 2 ton. Drove one of those too. It also had a variant with the MRAP cab. I think we used to call it the Rhino.

    Hi there,

     

    maiden run is done. I‘m very pleased with the abilities  of the truck.

    Take a look at the little story and enjoy chivalry, diving, mudbathing , double winching and more

    Regards

    Some simple driving impressions without any load.

    It has a  high power consumption but nit too much for 15kg Weight

    Regards

    thanks, guys.

    the Build of the second payload begins. A mechanical recovery crane.
    Cranes have many pulleys. So I have to make some of these silly things. After a bit gugeling etc I know, I need a formtool. So I go to my storage and found some 10mm silversteel

    After milling the rough shape…

    … I gave him the needed clearence angles with jewellers files.
    A first try with the unhardened and unsharpened formtool

    Looks principally good. Ergo: it’s the right way to do this. :biggthumpup:

    Stay tuned for more happy metal ::2thumbs

    Regards

    Ralf

    Hi,

    two, later quite unremarkable, pieces are done. Unremarkable but important and not easy to done.

    The in two axis rotable pulleys for the main hook rope.

    After roundabout 15 Hours of planning and machining they’re done
