Just an update to let interested parties know that this project is still alive, and making some progress.  I have redrawn everything that was lost in the computer crash, plus some new drawings, thanks to some new info from Doug.  A lot of detail remains to be collected and added.  It is really difficult to tell accurately how parts fit together from photographs - mostly by trial and error...many errors...so far.

I see eBay user 3wieds is offering a resin model kit of the M2 HST for $139.99.  Looks pretty detailed.

Pretty good model, although maybe a little off in detail.  It is molded resin, I believe.

I am still fiddling with some dimensions, and details, although I am getting close to putting it all together.  Unlike the molded parts that have many pieces combined into one, mine is being built from paper (cardstock, matt board,etc) and from many many pieces.  I'm not sure if I can post pictures these days, but when the time comes, I'll be sure to "show off" several year's work!  Might even make a kit available.  Jim

Making progress!  Here is a photo from the recent Paper Modeler's Convention in D.C.  For the record, this is 1/16 scale, all scratch built from scratch drawings.  But, I've had a lot of help along the way, from forum members, and Landis Zimmerman.  My thanks to them.
