Hi Gang,
I was just looking for the varios upgrade sets on Trumpeters M1083 MTV truck. I have one kit online available for only 40 Euros. Did I read right that some company make a roof for the M1078 kit? So maybe two could be merged for the M1083? And could Trumpeters M1082 LMTVT trailer also be used with the M1083 kit?

Yes, Tank Workshop offers both a closed and an open-backed canvas for the M1078.




You should be able to cut and combine two of them for an M1083. I have thought about doing the same thing.

The canvas will also fit the M1082 LMTVT trailer, which is pulled by the M1083 as well. They would make a pretty nice combo.

Thanks, exactly I was looking for this. I have just made an account with TWS and will order the part soon.
