I'm in the early planning stage of building a M985 of the Israeli Defence Force.
I want to build the vehicle in the upper picture "pic47.jpg". Since I am no way impressed by the Italeri M977 kit, I intend to mix the Trumpy M983 and the Revell rebox of the Italeri M977. The idea is to use as few parts from the Italeri kit as possible.
Going through my pictures of IDF M985s (I got too few...), I came across the picture "PICT1094.JPG. It seems to me, there is a fairlead next to the chassis frame, like seen on the M983? But where is the self recovery which placed on the M985? Same place as on the M983? I can't really see, there is room for it in the same place as on the M983?
Can anyone clarify this?
