Well I think I've got my Australian CMP Bofors Gun Tractor and Bofors Gun done to the point where I can add paint. There are still bits and pieces to add but I think it's there.
This is a major conversion of the Italeri Chevy 15cwt into the Australian Gun Tractor as used in the Pacific Theatre. The gun is of course from Bronco with some minor changes to the build using some scratch built bits and some spare photo-etch. The gun will not be in the travel lock as I've seen a few pics of the gun moving without the barrel locked in place.
The gun tractor is not exact but it's as close as I can come with the references available.

Comments good or bad are most welcome.

Hey Sean,

Beautiful combo..that tractor especially! Looking forward to the paint and weathering. Can't say I think too much about Commonwealth tanks during the WW2 era, but their trucks were just phenomenal, and this tractor is a nice example. Thanks for posting.

Cheers,
