    Does anyone have a Master Parts list book in PDF for the WC-21?

    Do you have any pictures of your dad's WC-21 that was part of D-Day and beyond? The 1941 WC-21 was typically only used overseas where it had either been already deployed at the start of the war, or was early invasions/deployments such as Burma, or Africa. I would love to see pics of its used...

    Buying First M1008...

    Ok...answered my own question looking at other threads...I must have a faulty memory, cause it is pretty standard for the M1008A1 to have the large communication rack...seemed a lot smaller. :lol: Have decided not to add to my truck. I will just throw a PRC-77 in the back! Here are some more...
