Beautiful model.

However, I was wondering if you knew that the AFV Club kit has one aspect wrong. The quad gun isn't on a permanent pedestal as the kit depicts, but is actually a trailer-mounted gun that is brought into the truck bed with the wheels removed when the truck goes out on the road and is taken back out when the truck come back. (It's impossible to tell if you got that part corect from the photos you provided thus far.)

Good work Pascal. I like the stencilling on the turret. Do the marking depict an actual vehicle?

Thanks for the linkage there Matt! Nice model Pascal - if I can lend a hand or any assistance - let me know. You might consider adding the M60 MG mounted on a pedestal in the Cab. Also, at the time I modeled mine, I was unclear on the Radio setup. I felt uncomfortable "just winging-it" so I didn't add it. Our own Dave "Animal" Willett modeled his version of "Nancy" with the Radio fitted, that I recommend for further reference. Dave stops by from time to time, if he sees the thread, he might comment further too.

Nice looking model Pascal, i'll be following this as I have one of these to build at some point, one thing I noticed is the star on the left rear mudguard looks crooked, if its not it it must be an angle of viewing thing.

Many thanks Jim. I know you site since some years. Your nancy and other GT are in my reference date base;
For the radio on Nancy i dont have any information about this. The Nancy in the wartime pics seems to have no radio set & no antennas.

My only trouble are for the gun electrical lines . Theire are missing on the kit.

Thanks again
pascal

As I've seen this thing, the stars have been changed. I put them lower on the mud flap ( as the real thing) and a little more staight

Very nice job. Love the muddy weathering on the chassis.

Thanks for sharing

Nancy had a radio. PRC type, just straped to the front of the bed, if you look, there is one picture and you see one of the crew members with earphones on and you can make out the antenna. Not sure how to post pictures on here.

Pascal - looking even better as you go along.

Jerry - if you are still reading: I got my examples of Archer's "Little Respect" and "The Red Baron" dry-transfers yesterday. They are even nicer than I thought they would be - great artwork and execution by Archer. Naturally, I got derailed and began pulling out my parts again - "The Red Baron" is just screaming out to be done! Back to the workbench I go...

Jim,
Glad you liked them, I made them for myself also. Doing all 4 of the 444 gun trucks. They seem popular, so maybe Woody will put out the rest of them.

Salut Pascal
Here's a PRC-25 radio set :


There's one included in most of DML "Nam series" figure sets (3302, 3307, 3312, 3313...)
