    Mashpee 354 is finished.

    I took the AFV Club 1/35 M35 Vietnam gun truck and scaled it up to 1/25 and scratch built it. The chassis, wheels and suspension are kit bashed from a pair of Italeri 1/24 Opel Blitz. Cab roof and windshield are from an old Monogram hot rod kit, air cleaner cover is actually a Tuxedo shirt cuff stud. There is a few kits on here I've scaled up from 1/35 , one is an AM General M917 dump truck I scaled up from the Trumpeter U.S. Army Container semi truck kit.

    I got a Gershaw scrap metal unit done. 6V71, shortened cab and chassis, home brew decals. No illusion, Gershaw runs smaller 20" rims on the front on al of their trucks. Easier to turn in their shredder yard. Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Cat/Mitsubishi service van.

    Yes we need a ton of overhead protection! Here is our Shoreham rig I started a few years ago. I scaled up a 1/35 GMC to scratch build it in1/25. Still doing the tank, pumps, hose reels and froward below bumper spray units. Now the Long Island built Fire-Matic factory built units are replacing the ex mil units here

    Beautiful work! Those Cape Cod units are sure built a tad heavier than our L.I. Pine Barren units are. Paul
  5. Started with a scratch built RS Mack that needed to be more than a power unit. Stretched it about an 1 1/2". Started to build up the body from a Leech unit in the yard where my Marmon is parked right now. Also on a whim stuck it on a Mack LMSW that is slated to be a Maine Logger unit.

    Very nice build. Did the kit come with the zimmerit or did you add it? The Frui tracks make a big difference on all armor especially T34's IMO. Making up a set for a 251 UHU conversion on the bench. Paul

    1/16 scale Peterbilt 359.

    The interior work and screening on the steps are excellent. Color it is painted works very well the the chrome items. It will be an impressive rig when done! Is the Blue a Humbrol paint? Is it enamel, lacquer or acrylic? Paul

An other thing I do is look at cheap necklaces for chains. Paul
