Is there a correct way to secure a vehicle/armoured on the trailer?
How many chains and ties?
Where to get them in 1/35.
For C-HET M911 M747
Thanks

MR Modellbau has released a set :


The chains and ties setup depends on the vehicle that is transported. You can search for "[name of the vehicle] transport guidance" to get the corresponding Technical Manual. Here's an example with the M2 Bradley :

Transport Guidance, Technical Manual: Bradley Fighting Vehicle System

Both Accurate Armour and MR Modellbau make various sets of chains and tighteners for US, British and German tank transporters based on era. AA set A195 is specifically designed for the C-HET.

Thanks for the help.
I'm only on the chassis.Always thinking ahead, in particular what vehicle to put as the load. There's so much choice.
Thanks again
