M6 37mm Gun Motor Carriage (WC-55 Dodge)

Here's my conversion of the Skybow/AFV Club WC-51/52 Beep Weapon Carrier, mated with the Trakz 37mm AT gun. Lots of backdating of the Beep and plenty of scratchbuilding. It'll be in the impending MMIR issue (#52). The M6 sports a mud camo seen in North Africa. The streaks were made using the Tamiya "make up" kit. Fabio Sacchi gave me the early directional tires from a master he made (Thank you again, Fabio!). They are available from Formations.

Sweeeet, Great job. Love everything about it.

To become old and wise, one must survive being young and stupid.

Nice job, Roy.

Probably one of the best Mud Camo jobs I've seen - tough to get looking right in scale, but you pulled it off.

Thanks for the comments guys. Rick, I was worried about the mud camo myself. A buddy showed me his Tamiya weathering powder camo scheme and I was convinced.
