Ok, let's get some three-axle trucks :)

FAP 2226 is the first series of 6x4 truck with NG technology made by FAP. It was mostly produced as dump truck, the FAP 2226 RBK. There were also other versions, as fire engine, fuel tank, concrete mixer, tow truck and semi-trailer truck - FAP 2226 RBDT.

For this also please replace old FAP 2226 links with this new one :)

Good Evening:
The following gun is the french canon de 155 mm de Bange Mle 1877. A long lasting gun, because it saw several wars, until the end of WWII.

As a siege and fortress gun, from 1883 it was necesary an hydropneumatic cilinder attached to the carriage and to a wooden plataform. But as field gun, the only mean for dealing with the recoil was a pair of wooden ramps behind the wheels. But in the French Army it was numerically important until mid WWI as counterbattery artillery.
The boer 155 Long Tom is a close related gun, also designed by de Bange, but built by Schneider. Cheers.

PS: Once again, thanks to Eswube! I'm enjoing the Ā«french harvestĀ». :lol:

Thanks Nestin, but not as detailed as your trucks! ;)

I have a close relative of that gun ( 90 mm de Bange), but it is in a very huge scale (almost 10 times its size in FD scale) so it is difficult to resize it (I'm doing it slowly -I mean, very slowly- because after a 60 or 70% reduction, I redraw must the gun. But until now I had reduced it 2 times only :oops: and I am still far to reach the actual length of the barrel). I think that it can be ready for May or June, after some siege gun and mortars, an aircraft in FD scale, and an american old patrol gunboat and a peruvian auxiliar cruiser both in SB scale. Cheers.

I understand, some work takes time and we must to be patient :)

Here I continue with my work, the next is FAP 2626, developed from FAP 2226 as model with bigger load capacity, but which has shown the 260hp engine not really enough for that weight of truck. It was not producet in large series due it was replaced with more powerful models. The "mulden" dump truck was exported in large number in to African countries which were traditional customers of FAP for mining companies. Some models for some countries had left steering wheel.
