Gary Brantley Posted May 3, 2022 Author Share Posted May 3, 2022 Hey, I want to thank @M3talpig, @echen, @Longbow, @Lummox and @Cerberus for your "likes" for this model! I sure appreciate the support my friends; has anyone some advice or suggestions to offer at this point? Thanks for the encouragement all! I added a couple scratch-built pieces yesterday. ARVN crews often removed the pioneer tool rack on the right front fender, using that area for more stowage space. Sometimes the rack framework was left intact, with crates/boxes placed within. I imagined that some "in-field" modifications were also made, especially wherever young tankers had access to a welder, torch and angle-iron stock. With that thought in mind, I used some brass angle and small strip of sheet-metal to make a "jerry-rigged" stowage brace (gotta have someplace to tie that stuff!). I also went back over the main muffler shields with more brown Vallejo to "subdue" the rust tones a bit. I like it better now! Thanks for stopping in and having a look! 18 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
