I've been making a army train that reflects my time in the military. The train is 1/32nd scale. I'm using some old K-line 1/32 army locomotives and various flatcars, some that I've made. Finding military items in 1/32 scale is difficult. I got a Testors 1/32nd WWII jeep that I bashed into my M-151A1 armored gun jeep that I used in Vietnam. I could not find a 1/32nd five ton truck till I stumbled across Revell's re-issue of an old Renwal kit of a five ton wrecker. I used it as a basis for my Snoopy gun truck that was in my convoys from Qui Nhon to Pleiku in Vietnam.  I printed off the graphics on ink jet vinyl and put them on the vehicles.

Lucky find for those vehicles. A nice way to commemorate your service time.
