Not an Island war-fighter's favorite Transportation. Equipped with a pair of 225 HP Gray Marne diesels and a pair of 50 caliber machine guns. Lead flying above one's head from both directions.

We picked up 12 of them at Okinawa, each with a Higgins Boat (LCVP)  resting in the well deck, when the Korean War started.

Semper FI and Anchors Away!

Possibly for Inchon.  John

Please tell us more about the item behind the tank. What is it, what is it mounted on, and how did you build it. I have looked at 100 pictures of tanks stuck in the mud and still no hint. Thanks

Hey Hokie,

That is a Churchill Tank AVRE with a wood fascine. Tanks (in both world wars) would carry these huge bundles of wood for ditches. The company that makes this model is a French company, named Gaso-Line. They have the worst instructions ever, and are resin based. In order for the wood to be “still”, I not only had to glue it to a base, but secure it using wire that they provided with the kit. I then used CA glue to fasten the wires. If you have any questions about Gaso-Line, please feel free to email me. I’ve built many of their models.

Regards,

Greg P

Happy Memorial Day everyone!

I’d like to share my Thanks and Appreciation to everyone that ever served, especially those who payed the ultimate sacrifice! On this day I also Thank everyone that has ever put on a uniform, along with all those families that never had a loved one return home.
The best way to show your appreciation is to be an American worth dying for!
