Tamiya GMC 'Deuce'

This project sort of developed as it went along; it started off as a straightforward build of the truck until it became a 'bounty hunter/souvenir collector' vignette. Lots of aftermarket and spares box items, the 109 rudder was from a scrapped Revell 1/32 kit.

Wooow, Mike you are full of surprises! What a great looking truck, so you do more than just wingy things 🙂

Thanks guys! @Aghis I haven't done much armour, I think this was the third or fourth I built, but I'm getting into it again. Just working on a Tamiya Gama Goat right now, it's great fun 👍

Can't stop looking at it....
How did you make these fantastic shades and color modulation??
And those rims!
My apologies in advance, I will have to copy you for my White Scout Car even though I know it won't be like this truck.... 🙁

Nice building Mike, and the idea with the tail end of a plane looks good. But why don´t you give the GI a patch on his arm?

Thanks again guys! @Arne That's a good idea, where would I find info on such things?

Hi Mike, you can look at Archer Dry Transfers. There you can find a lot of rank insignias. I would say, the GI is a Master Sergeant or Technical Sergeant. Look at this, for example: https://www.michtoy.com/item-FER-G35017-US_Rank_Insignia_World_War_II_Vietnam_Lower_Ranks.html
