... good old reliable deuce’n half…

You have a number on the door… you won’t find a military truck without unit numbers on the bumpers. At least it has a driver… does he do double duty as the school bus driver, too? lol…

Extremely well executed right down to the canvas rope… many of us had the opportunity to drive one… me included, whether by choice, or not. Pulled on the canvas, took off the canvas… etc., etc.,

Both the bus and the truck bring back loads of memories… mostly good.

again, excellent craftsmanship.

Very nice craftsmanship, was a heavy equipment operator in the engineers. This and the 5 ton were some of the trucks I cut my eye teeth on. Thanks for the memories. BTKS

Very nice. Growing up these trucks roared by our house as the National Guards went to their weekend drilling. Brings back memories.

What did you use for plans?
