« Part 4: Model Build #4 : Tires for WWII Jeep w/ Trailer Part 5 of WWII Jeep series no next part

Well I got a little bit done on the jeep. Now I need to work on the 50cal. then coat everything with some Tung oil. I think I’m going to purchase the plans for the Abrams tank next. These military vehiclesare fun to build.

Excellent work I must say.

Now as you did such an good job I thought I had better add something constructive too so I set about to go find out what the radio set was.

It appears to be a BC-620, no doubt VHF and reportedly to be also manpackable, not that I would want to be carrying it on my back!
The radio comes in a series of components, the Radio Set which comprised of two pieces and then there was a power supply SCR-510 that all mounted in a frame and then alll had a canvas cover over it to protect it from the weather.

Absolutely nothing to fault… (saying great job is becoming repetitive…).

haha! Now that was funny!

Going to start on the M-3 37mm Anti-tank gun tonight. Wish I didn’t have to work today.
