I am pretty sure this build thread can live here, if not, please tell me and help me move it. This is the Dodge WC51 kit that is supplied with the Italeri C-119 Flying Boxcar kit in 1/72nd scale. I am sure that this kit, or others like it, have been built before so maybe mine will be a bit different. I would to build mine as a surplus-post-war fire fighting vehicle, similar to those seen in national parks, etc...There is no box art for this, but I did find this nifty photo: Now, wouldn't that be fun? Of course it will mean scratch-building the pumps and hoses and all that stuff, but I think it might make for a neat little vehicle model. Here are some sprue shots. I have already primed it... And some resin additions that might be useful...ok, maybe not the barrels... What say ye? --John
