Folks,
I am about to build the ancient HobbyFan M911 kit with the Talbert 64 ton semi trailer. I will correct the many mistakes on the M911, but I would like to know whether more information is available for the trailer. I found this 2004 topic, but apart from the confirmation that it once was used by the US Army, I still lack information and photograpic evidence. Any information on this heavy trailer around? old topic:

Thanks in advance

From the Talbert website. According to the caption, it's a Desert Storm (small !) picture...



The tractor truck may be a contractor one though....

Thanks, Frenchy!
That gives me at least an impression on the light color shade of the trailer, compared to US Army sand colors.
