Hi Greg
Treadway looks good. Glad you got it sorted. Howitzer is great - much improved.

Looks like you had some fun w/the gun. It's those little touches like the lanyard that make it yours. Nicely executed. PaulE

Beautifully executed Howitzer, Greg. The details and slight mode just makes it look more fun to do. Like to see how the treadway turns out.

Cheers,
Richard

Well today it was the gmc... you have to know that l have a hard cabin that i need to transform in soft cabin since l have no pics/proof that hard cabin were used in Korea by the USMC... l changed the winch and there were also a lot of corrections... these old kits are really loads of fun...:smiling4::smiling5::smiling5::smiling5::smiling5: 59F08540-2DC9-4E2A-8455-38555A52F85B.jpeg 3D297B65-28EF-432A-B09F-7497C93406D6.jpeg 4CA07DC5-4235-4E57-98ED-6BFA11FCABFE.jpeg

Hard cabs were abandoned early in WWII & were mostly Lend-Lease as they were difficult to ship in volume & used a lot more steel, so none used in Korea. Try to find some lighter cable for the winch. That thread is way too heavy. PaulE

Greg ,
Can't it be cut across the width, gently with a scalpel. ?
Would be a shame to leave it, or cover it up .
