Fuel Truck Update
M578 Oshkosh Fuel
Truck with Update Parts
I discovered these accessories at the last Belgian model expo in
Hoboken and I could not resist introducing these products. No, it is
not a plane but a very useful refueler truck kit.
These sets improve the Italeri model of HEMTT (Heavy Expanded
Mobility Tactical Truck) version in 1/35 which is the ideal
companion for the hélios Apache and Blackhawk on the same scale
produced by KANGNAM and ACADEMY.
REF 35001 FUEL PUMP
The model with its closed back doors was an "inert" accessory in
a diorama. PRO ART allows us with this reference to make a dynamic
component of it. 43 parts finely moulded out of white resin, detailing
all the system of distribution of fuel. Pumps, drains, meters,
rollers of pipes, guns will come to fit between the partition of the
bottom provided and the frontage cut out with its two raised doors.
Scratch-builder ,hold on; Pro-Art will save your precious time here!

Ref. 35002 EXTERIOR
56 parts to replace or improve the "large external base", what
one can see above the case (Exhaust, filter, pumping installation,
valves of fillings...) and "hidden" parts (reserve, cases of
arrangement, extinguishers, transmission gear box, flaps,..).extra
fine moulding parts will be seen only after painting.
Ref. 35003 INTERIOR CABIN
25 parts to "relook" the cabin. Included are the dashboard with an extinguisher
in passenger area, the side consoles, the pedals, the seats..if you
open the doors, this set will raise the basic model clearly.
Ref. 35004 WHEELS
The defect of the kit's eight wheels (+ spare) is to have an
unequal tyre tread in form and thickness and a representation of the
whimsical bolting. The only solution to hide misery was to cover
them with a large layer of mud for a setting in situation.
Henceforth the truck will proudly be able to stand on the tarmac
thanks to this set of replacement, also extremely useful.
These sets include b/w photographs of the items with their
positioning on the basic kit.(color version via pro-art e-mail).Color
parts are as the one they replace.For documentation ,you have to dig
around.(and personally if someone could help me, i ll appreciate ,it
will lead me to a diorama including MM-60G pave hawk at refueling
Bought separately or grouped these details deserve a large success
taking into account their excellent QUALITY/PRICE ratio. No importer
up to now (although I hope there is one in the future for this guy).
