Hi there, folks. I thought I'd see what people were towing behind their bobbed deuces and/or bobbed 5-tons.
I suppose that I'm mostly interested in knowing how well the ton-and-a-half 105 trailers do behind a bobbed deuce; or to compare to a 101 three-quarter ton.
I like the idea of an XM-381...
Military models - hobby stuff
Thanks man....wish I had more time to finish it before I gave it away! I didn't get to do everything I wanted to but Carter was pretty happy with it.
I'm working on a T-72 and BMP-2 right now, I'll get some pics soon.
1:35 Tamiya Mutt (M151A2) added pics
FYI...a few more pics I took before handing over the model to my son....
It's been a while, but I am posting up a link to the album of pics that show the M151A2 I built for my son. He really enjoyed the mutt rides I took him on at Ski's place last year, so I made the mutt model as a "memento" of the event!
It's a basic Tamiya 1:35 kit with no modifications. Easy...
This is a quick one, probably - did any PIP 5-tons - M or XM 809's etc - make it to Vietnam prior to the end of the conflict?
I read something that didn't make sense- I always thought that only M39/G744 trucks were used then.
M60 gate guard in VA
Maybe the tank was taken out for refurb as a NJNG lawn ornament - one can hope!
Why don't you just drop into the offices of the folks who own the place, and ask if they know anything about it? They won't bite!
I'm adding another M60 "gate guard"; this is a group shot of...
5-ton tractor with deuce bed conversion
I've been looking for your pics of your truck project - kept coming up with the Cummins trucks and I wanted to see a multifuel - thanks! I can add to my Christmas list now.
that's an interesting, yet not quite similar approach......I just like the "soundless" operation...guess I was thinking "quiet=good".....then again, I am one of those who wears headphones when I drive my deuce.
Well, definitely NOT military, but quite a novel way to power your house if you own a Prius already. And from personal experience - these critters are the quietest motors you'll never hear, when they actually are on! Praise be the Atkinson Cycle....
Tank? M26 Pershing
Judging by the exhaust and mantlet, it looks like an M26 Pershing. I couldn't open the pic, it was truly tiny!
If the exhaust was on the sidesi t would be an M46 or M47. Just what I interpret from the tiny pic...
let us know if you don't buy - an M26 for sale is a rare...
SDF use of MV's
I'm also in Blackhorse - Echo Company, 23rd Battalion.....Manassas Armory; although I just got TDY to a brand new company they are starting up in Annandale, A/23 (provisional).....we'll see!
(FWIW, seven of us from Echo got deployed to Fort Pickett along with Blackhorse...
Patrick, we're still old-school BDU's in the tried & true woodland. The BIG news is that Virginia FINALLY got to change our name tapes from the famous "white prison inmate" ribbon look to actual, honest-to-god OD backing.
Also, we FINALLY adopted subdued divisional insignia. I doubt...
