US Radio Truck and other bits

I have spent a while looking for details for the configuration of the Radio trucks on the CCKW chassis used by the US during WW2, but I could find little definite information on the web. Therefore this conversion is my interpretation based on the Airfix/Heller GMC kit. Taking a tip from Phil, the radio aerials are detachable and can be left on a magnetic paper strip underneath the vehicle for storage

Also included are a pair of Pegasus US turcks and a Fujimi Sherman with 105mm. The Pegasus kits were a breeze, but the Sherman was a pain, I'd forgotten how bad some Japanese kit instructions had been and I think the mould is beginning to wear.

Cool idea this tip about putting the aerials under the truck.
Maybe over a few years I will try this as well, a shame there is so much to make...
