1/72 Mercedes-Benz 3850 Tank Carrier & Revell M-60A3 **first page** (by Burak Özdil)

Hello dear friends,

Here is the Burak Özdil's very special work ..He build Mercedes-Benz 3850 Tank Carrier + M-60A3 .

Mercedes Benz 3850 tank tractors are in the inventory of the Turkish Army. There is no 1/72 scale kit for this tractor. Burak found a kit for the Mercedes 2238S model (released by Keil Kraft company) and long transformation process ...

I’m sharing the construction stages today,


Burak's notes ;

Model: Mercedes-Benz 3850 Tank Carrier + M-60A3

Subject: Turkish Armed Forces shipment to Syria

Used kits: Mercedes tractor (1/72 - Keil Kraft), M-60A3 (1/72 - Revell), Trailer and many other details Japanese Type-73 Tank Carrier (1/72 - Aoshima)

I also made many parts using Evergreen, wire and PE parts.

Keil Kraft kit (Mercedes 2238S Truck).. poor detail.

tires and rims for a civilian vehicles..

Used Revell Man truck tires...

The chassis of the kit is poorly detailed .. That's why the Aoshima Type 73 tractor chassis was used.

modification of many parts..

the main part used in the kit..a little worked

Black part from Keil Kraft, replaced Aoshima Type 73 part

scratch building fenders (ex pe parts)


Trailer from Japanese Type-73 Tank Carrier (1/72 - Aoshima)

decals are custom made from babibi model ..

M60-A3 is a Revell kit No: 3175 .. It was made in 2011.
