Calling the base and truck done....for now. Little touch ups to do later and possibly adding a figure, but for now she is ready to take to the AMPS show next week as a display piece. All greenery from The Scenic Factory.

I have a big love for the Duece. During the second half of my military career I was a 63B and worked on everything from HUMMWV to an M109 self propelled howitzer. I have thousands of miles driving a Duece back and forth from Corpus to El Paso and while in Korea and love 'em to pieces. Tough looking trucks and you've done a very good job representing one here Rob.
Thanks fellas. Might add more to it later but for now it's ready to use as a display piece at the show.
Joe we still had some duece's and old 5 tonners when I was at El Paso Ft. Bliss with 3rd ACR. Also in Germany we had some in my unit.
Ft. Bliss.............man do I ever remember that place. How long were you there and did you like it? We went through there several times with my aviation outfit at Ft. Hood on our way to NTC and it was beautiful. Then we went through there with my field artillery unit on the way to White Sands .................and that sucked.
