    trailer and shelter combos with bobbed deuces

    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...

    M151A2 mutt build - gift for 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...

    did M809 series 5-tons make it to VN?

    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.

    anyone with XL super singles on M39 series trucks?

    The title says it all. Wondering out loud if any Steel Soldiers have "super singled" their 5-ton M54's/M52's/M39 series multifuels with Michelin XL's and if so, post some pics! Thanks, folks. Adam

    1-10kw Prius mobile genset

    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.... There's a...

    Different 915 gun truck pic

    A few pics of another M 915-based gun truck. I am told the sides are made of armor or heavy gage metal plate; not sure exactly. OIF, I think 2004-2005.

    Any M54A2's or M51A2's used as OIF guntrucks?

    Wondering if any vets or news observers have knowledge of old-style multifuel 5-tons being used as gun trucks in OIF? My German Tankograd "picture book" of OIF gun trucks shows hardened multifuel tractors and I think a 5-ton commo truck, but not built-up as true gun trucks - just 900 and 800...

    Other State Defense Force guys using their deuces "for the cause"?

    Hey all. I figured out that my old photo albums are not around anymore, it wasn't the first thing on my list to do today so instead of searching for the old SS albums, I just started a new one. I put a few photos in from a recruiting setup our unit put together at a recent car show...

    Link to my scale model album

    Hey everyone. FWIW, here's a link to my album site that includes some hi-res pics of my Tiger family models I've been working on, in addition to other stored images of stuff that I am using for model reference ideas. By no means are these models finished; they are in a very transitional state...

    looking for plastic model manufacturer comparos -

    ALCON - I'm trying to decide which manufacturer to pick from to build some of the more late-model US tactical vehicles and armor. Specifically, Dragon; Tamiya, AFV Club, Trumpeter, Italeri, Academy. I'm trying to figure out if anyone has done a variant of an M113, for example, and found "brand...

    ALCON - My rusty old '70 deuce is as plain as they come - never got the heater/slave adapter updates; no winch, no hardtop, plain plain PLAIN. All the parts/complete kits are advertised by everyone under the sun, but half the time they are out of stock - I'm not knockin anyone, just had that...

    686A Tan - current sources, Gillespie and others?

    Hey, which vendors are current with their stock of 686 Tan? Anybody know? From what I've heard, Gillespie is the paint to go with. BTW, this would be in gallon increments for a paint sprayer NOT rattle-cans.! Thank you!

    A few pics - Jagdtiger in process

    Funny how you stop in the middle of a project, and suddenly you start back up again - 18 years later! Just a few "in progress" shots of the Tamiya 1:35 Jagdtiger I have resurrected from the dead. Back when I last was working on it, I had about completed the basic hull etc....and had started to...

    anyone - vinyl deuce cargo cover? have 5-ton cover to trade

    ALCON - I'm looking for a good used vinyl deuce cargo cover. I have a similar cover, but it's a 14-footer made for a 5-ton cargo. 3-color late model. Either just wanting to buy one outright, trade, beam me up to where the vinyl cargo covers grow, whatever. Thanks, all!
