Italeri 1/72nd scale Dodge WC-51 3/4 ton Cargo Truck,US Army WWII
Happy New Year, to post my first build for the year is not a fresh build but one that was completed around 2012. For a change of pace away from aircraft I built this neat little kit of the Dodge WC-51 3/4 ton Cargo Truck. Straight out of box build, standard OD finish using Model Master Enamel. A little wash and silver pencil to show some wear. Unlike aircraft where I will do some research and try to depict a specific moment in it’s history. This is just a standard truck that may have served somewhere in the ETO on an airfield or on the front lines. Easy build, the grille is quite thick and can use PE to be more accurate in this scale otherwise straight forward. Some how along the way the rear driveshaft is missing on the bottom view shot. Thanks for viewing.
