Paulster Posted September 26, 2014 Share Posted September 26, 2014 Started this a couple of years ago and shelved before I gave it flying lessons. This is the 40+ year old Italeri/Peerless kit. This vehicle's destiny was utter failure. Packing a 37mm AT gun, it was equivalent to throwing tennis balls at German armor in North Africa. Based on the Dodge WC 51/52 chassis, it had lacked any armor except the "splinter" shield around the M1 37mm gun. As stated above, this kit was first molded in the late '60's and then released by 3 or 4 different companies since. It defiantly shows it's age. The only kit dedicated aftermarket set was a pe set manufactured by Eduard back in 1993. After about 4 months of searching I found a set in Australia. This was produced when pe was in it's infancy. Frets are very thick. So…..getting my hands on anything WC 51 related and digging deep into my spares bin, I jumped off the cliff. Wheels are just sitting loose to see if by chance they all touched. Of course they didn't. Used a steel square to draw our mounting points for the windshield rests. Little bit of coaxing to get the hood to line up. PE rear bumpers, pedals and dash installed. Forming the tie down hooks. Pencil to show size. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
