  1. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    Nice start Stu, I am sure it will have a good finish when done.

  2. Thx DE, U R correct it need some good weathering. Normandy July
    1944 was mostly very dry & dusty. I'll take that as a guide.

  3. After a 53 year break you are building like this, seems like you never had a break at all. Great build, keep them coming.

  4. Great truck! I like the load of fuel drums and such.

    • Glad you like it, Robert. Built it for my late Dad was a WWII vet, 665th Ordnance
      Am. Co. Utah Beach D-Day+12, Normandy. I'm sure he worked with these trucks
      full of live ammo. He was a MSGT who drove a Jeep for one of Gen. Patton's staff officers.
