Post-war JV44 Clean-up

Recommended Posts

That looks like a nice dio idea, Suresh! Not sure a Dragon Wagon is the best vehicle; I would think a truck mounted crane would be better although not sure if any is out there for Allies. Maybe a Diamond T wrecker? Would be a little more compact, too. I think the DW could only drag it up.

No sure either. I've seen a couple of British trucks in this situation. Technically, this is an M26 Knuckley - it has an A frame and winch just like the trucks but no crane. The diorama actually shows just that - dragging the carcass up a slope. Thanks for the input!

Wow, excellent looking concept. Id agree, there is every chance it could have and did happen.  Lots and lots of possibilities for that dio concept. I also agree about the Diamond T maybe being a better choice for recovery.

Yup. You guys are probably right! Although Dora's Diamond doesn't have the same ring to it as Dora and the Dragon!

Wow! Nice!

 

Thanks Ray. I'm not a big fan of the "poppy modelgrafix" paint jobs that are very much in vogue now in this part of the world. So this is as far as my paint contrasts get.

Needed to do the driver figure before buttoning up the truck. Minor modifications done to the stock pose so he would fit better in the cab.
