He had some servers go down last year and said he did not have much time, so maybe that's the issue.

Cheers Rob.

Full server access on VERY large reference sites is usually NOT a technical issue but rather a MONEY issue. In other words there is considerable costs involved in supporting multiple large server databases. I suspect we may find this to be the more likely source of the problem. (Sometimes the same for Armorama.)

Check the link that Thomcat lists just 3-4 posts above.

We are trying to look at various reference images of the 1076 trailers but no dice.

Well I waited until after the first of the month hoping the Prime Portal website would reset. However it seems to still be non-functional. I can get to a topic page of thumbnails but then clicking on any of the small photos fails to bring up the original reference photo enlargement??????

Seems to be working fine to me.


OK - I'm gonna change that!

I can open the beginning page with all the thumbnails but when I click on an individual photo - NOTHING!

BTW., what is wrong with Prime Portal?
I can only see thumbnails of the pictures, not the actual pictures 🤔

Link to MMK website:

As for myself; Bulkhead Flatrack and Wooden Crates have now been ordered this morning. (Father's Day gift to myself.) Should look really good on the back of either my HEMTT LHS or my experimental Marine Mk ?? LHS.

The MMK M1076 kit is a very nice kit overall.

I choose to buy the kit with trailer, the M1 flatrack and four large wooden boxes.
You get a lot of resin with this combination :-)

Michael, you are right, more variety is always better (like with icecream...)
But it seems to me, like especially Trumpeter seems to have "seen the light", as they continue to bring out new variants of the HEMTT (Thinking of the M983/M870A1 trailer combo and the one with the radar trailer)

Thanks Thomas for the post on the container decals - just exactly what I was looking for!

However, I do wish someone (perhaps Archer) would offer a set with an even greater variety of carrier names.

The link to the Miniman Factory product page for the 20 ft. container. The decals are available separately, and they are nice, I have bought a couple of sheets

Somewhat impatiently waiting for a PLS and a new HEMTT A4 to hit the market.

I understand about the A4 (Trumpeter has to recoup the mold cost of doing the A2 first.) but cannot really comprehend why no one has yet to offer the PLS???

Repeat of an earlier question:

Does any after market supplier offer container decals to represent other international shippers?

Tom, I have built both - they are somewhat different in their construction but both about equal in quality and ease. To me the real complaint is the limited decal choices offered. I do hear the manufactures are now offering more choices these days so you may want to check this before you take the leap.

I just checked the web and neither manufacture mentions new decals. Italeri has two offerings/different boxings; one a civilian container with decals marked for "China Shipping" ONLY. Then they also offer a seperate military boxing that contains US Army, USMC and Italian Military markings. To my knowledge the Trumpeter offering comes with civilian "China Shipping" decals ONLY!

Hoorah, glad it is soon my birthday, will most likely by the gift from myself to myself :-)

Is there consensus, the Trumpeter 20" ISO container is the better choice between the Italeri and Trumpeter offerings?
