Hi to all,
I am a french modeller (new on armorama) and I try to build the Hobby Fan kit of the M911.
I have lot of pics and drawings.
But I don't find no information about the Tag axle.
Some underside pics or better copy from the TM pages are welcome.
Thanks
Regards.

Cher Pascal,

:-)

I just uploaded a few pics I made of the M911 in the early nineties. They pretty much give you a walkaround view. I did not crawl under it to photograph its private parts , but most details are there. If all goes well, I think they'll be in the "photo gallery" section in the next few days.

Bonne chance !

Hi Pascal,
the M911 pics are in the Photo Gallery now. I hope they may help. Building the M911 is a great challenge. The Hobby Fan kit can uses some improvement !
Btoi,
Jan :-)

I have one, what exactly do you need a photo of? I don't understand the "Tag axle" term, I'm a DAT. I only comprehend tanker talk, but may be able to photograph where you tell me to. It may be hooked up to the trailer though.

Sabot,
I believe he is asking about the axel and set of wheels that are right under the winch.

I went out and looked at it, nasty, rusting desert tan truck. It is backed up to the trailer, but not connected. Nice day today, but I forgot my digital camera (forgot to write it down). Will try to remember tomorrow. Got to do it soon, someone from DOL was looking it over, apparently we submitted a work order to get it painted and by coincidence we were both out there at the same time.

I took some pictures today, it wasn't sunny like it was yesterday, but at least I had the camera today. I took some pictures of the axle and drive components, but not knowing what you needed, I just kind of guessed. I also didn't want to drag myself through the puddles of melted snow on my day off. I will post them when I get home. Probably in about 5 hours.
