    M26 Draqon Wagon

    Hi Everyone,I have had a Tamiya Globeliner 1/14 truck now for quiet a few years and have now finally found a use for it........... ;D ;D ;D ;D
    This will be the first of its kind in an Australian tank club......
    The kit is on its way from Germany and I have started stripping down the truck, the first pic is what the new cab will look like once I get it and build it..



    Cheers Kenm Germany...

    Cheers Ken

    I have let too many things get in the way of building one of these. I believe Willy is still selling these here in the states.

    I will be looking forward to yours!

    I have been thinking of this project for a few years but never had a starting point. So the starting point is the Globeliner? Who is Willy and what is his website? I would like to buy from the states. Thank You Fellow tankers.

    A few years ago I was thinking about building a Dragon Wagon too, and the Tamiya Globeliner was my choice as the best starting point as well. Thinking about it was as far as I got on that project. Good luck with it !!!!!

    Very Cool. I am watching. I am getting the coin together to pull the trigger on a Tamiya globeliner. Then the M26 cab kit. U said there will be a kit for the trailer? With all the WW 2 tanks Tamiya has produced, This would have been a good kit to mass produce. They could of up scaled their 1/35th Dragon Wagon for the cab and trailer parts and used the globeliner and possibly one of their trailer kits.

    Hey mate yeah I believe the trailer is 3 - 4 weeks away...
    Still have too move the whole front axle back 23mm yet and chop the rear frame rails off but that's tomorrows job... It would be nice if Tamiya produced them along with several other items...lol

    Hey Everyone just another small update... Front bar is on as is the fenders (which need to be trimmed back yet ) and the top of the rear wall of the cab.
    Next on the list is to cut the rear frame down and move the front axle back 23mm after that is the armoured window covers.


    Cheers Ken

    Looking really good. Are you going to do anything for the interior or just have the window hatches down?

    Hey mate no the side windows will stay shut as I have the Truck MF unit to go in along with the speaker and such so only the front windows will be hinged to mainly allow the removal of 2 screws inside which hold the cab on and the roof will be removable to allow for access to the MF unit and battery and the other pair of screws holding the cab on... so you would only see wiring inside so there's no real need to have the windows open......

    You can always cover that gear with a canvas tarp to protect it from rain, snow and dust !!!!

    Looking good. I did not even think about where all the electronics would go. I guess no need for interior. That makes it easier. Rex is right about the mechanical equipment behind the cab. I was looking at my 1/35 Dragon Wagon and Yikes is right! That is a project. Good idea about the trap. I like that idea.
