Ha only 16 lbs, thats a lightweight lol

thanks for sharing

I'd say a tear down is needed to set your mind at ease, with such a complex truck it would be nice to know all is put together as it should.

Yes definitely weather that body that should really bring out the ample detail.

It looks like a walking beam suspension but with leafs.

Oh and the box it comes with is a nice touch I had to make a box out of 3/8" plywood to transport my 8x8.

Really cool looking rig brother! Can't wait to see what you do to it. I will definitely be following along. Always liked the multi axle rigs

I am working on a M983, but in a more piecemeal way (plastic cab from Ebay and everything else figured out with a lot of head-scratching). If the fully assembled version you bought had been available at the time, I would have jumped on it!
Mine is also 1/12 scale, and here are a couple of things I've found that might be of interest to you. The Tamiya M1025 Humvee is also 1/12th scale, and can be "updated" (armor package; roof turret) if you want. There is a series of pre-built, pre-painted military figures by McFarlane which are also 1/12 scale. I am using a Navy Gunner figure in the turret of my M1025, and a Mk 19 grenade launcher team figure and weapon fot eh ring mount on the M983. Unfortunately, they do not offer a seated figure that can be used for a driver. I am trying to cut apart and "Frankenstein" one that will work for the M983.
