I've got three things going and close to completion at the moment:

1) I'm building a new gun truck miniature.
2) I'm converting the AFV Club M18 HellCat into the M39 Armored Utility Vehicle.
3) I'm building a lot of custom parts and details for fleshing out Polar Lights' Jupiter 2 Spaceship.

I think it's because information is a little hard to come by. It took me some time to gather enough photos and the technical manual to feel comfortable making the conversion attempt. Plus, it's a little known vehicle and I'm sure small cottage industry producers would be wary of returns on producing a conversion kit too.

Actually I have several 'scratch' projects going at the moment.

I have already started my 'LuLu' project. This is a seldom seen and not well known mineroller variant of the Sherman.

I am also working on a rather unique version of the Australian Chevy CMP as a mobile crane.

Another more long-term project is a HEMTT-based truck sporting Mattrack's.

I have several more that are 'floating' around, but these three have been taking their turns in the 'batter's box'.
