Oshkosh M1078 LMTV Cargo Truck [ZEUS MODEL 1:48]

14 January 2024

The Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) is a series of military vehicles that are based on a common chassis and vary by payload and mission requirements. The FMTV is derived from the Austrian Steyr 12M18 Truck, but substantially modified to meet United States Army requirements, these including a minimum 50 percent U.S. content including a Caterpillar engine as power source.

I'm always looking for new (Poweredby) Caterpillar scale models to add to my collection. The Oshkosh FMVT variants have also been on my wish list for a number of years because these trucks are powered 1:1 by a Caterpillar diesel engine.

I recently discovered a number of different Oshkosh LMTV variants in scale 1:144; 1:87 and 1:72th on Ebay at  NT2-model friends (seller qizin_9035) from China. They are printed as 3D Kits under the name ZEUS MODEL. When I asked the seller whether these 3D kits could also be printed in scale 1:48th, the answer was positive! Interested? You can choose from different scales and different FMTV variants and order them directly on Ebay with free shipping from China.

I have now ordered the 3D kit of theOshkosh M1078 LMTV Standard Cargo Truck in 1:48th scale for the first time. #EXCITING
