Re: SAG 14th Anniversary

Guess I lied. Joined the Facebook group last night because my son (SgtPriceUSMC on this board, and I didn't realize he was a member here until the last couple months), sent me a screen shot of a...

Re: SAG 14th Anniversary

Wow, that sucks. I guess it is what it is. Not interested in going back to Facebook, I have an account but stepped away from it a while back. Too much drama and click-bait.
I enjoyed my time here....

Reworking old GI Joe jeep trailer

Has anyone reworked the old GI Joe Five Star jeep trailer? I was wondering how it scaled out. Can it be reworked into a decent model without totally rebuilding it? I have three of them and while the...

Re: US boxes and crates

Now I've thought about the photo etched brass stencils as well. I've read up on making them and it doesn't appear too hard. I like the rubber stamp idea as well, where would you go about getting...

Re: US boxes and crates

Thank you for the excellent information Redball!!!

Now for another question; obviously the original 1/1 crates were stenciled, how do you guys letter your 1/6 crates? Decals? A brass stencil? Hand...

Re: US boxes and crates

You're welcome! Hopefully I'll get some feedback as to their accuracy. I suspect it's good but, I always double check.

Re: US boxes and crates

OK, I think I found a good reference site, they're repro crates but give multiple views and list the 1/1 dimensions. I'm posting the link for anyone that may be undertaking a similar project, and so...

Re: US boxes and crates

Pangaloss, I still pop in to check things out from time to time and have posted occasionally, but not like when I was really into the hobby. I did enjoy it and since I'm getting back in, becoming...

Re: plausibility check

The mortar rounds came in and were transported in cardboard tubes. Make you a few of these, which is quite simple to increase your ammo loadout.

Re: Welcome to the jungle!

Very nice! Love it. I second Pangaloss' statement about the bipod. They were often removed, but also often used, so either way is correct.

Re: Vietnam - A VC Ambush

Might want to uncoil those rounds from around the 60 gunners weapon, if not a stoppage is imminent.

Re: PFC Jorge I. Rodriguez, 3/2 Marine Regt., Betio, Tarawa, 11/20/1943

The problem with the shows on AHC and History Channel, before they became reality TV, is they put out so much bad information. I watched the AHC show on Hue and was so disgusted by the bad...

Re: The Bridge

I think it is superb. Very realistic, the poses, the drape of the uniforms, the way the equipment hangs. Superb!!!!

Re: LVT-1 Question

I should have specified, the LVT-3 and M5 Stuarts shared many common parts. Both used two Cadillac Series 42, Liquid cooled V-8 engines. The two engines were mounted in the sponsons on the LVT. They...

Re: LVT-1 Question

Pangaloss is correct, the National WWII Museum video is of the an LVT-4 cab, not the LVT-1.


I started two LVT-2's a couple years back, but got hung up on the running gear, particularly the...

Re: PFC Jorge I. Rodriguez, 3/2 Marine Regt., Betio, Tarawa, 11/20/1943

I have seen that mentioned in one source. It was not, however, the servicewide SOP for machine gunners, as taught in infantry school. The method you mention may or may not have been adopted on a...

Re: PFC Jorge I. Rodriguez, 3/2 Marine Regt., Betio, Tarawa, 11/20/1943

There is a fair amount of logic in swapping the first aid and ammo pouches, however virtually all units had SOP's that specified where the first aid pouch would be worn. This varied from unit to unit...

Re: A Question for US Marines Uniform Experts

Yes, for the majority of the troops, but you can mix in some transport packs for personnel that might be carrying extra equipment. They did not anticipate there would be the need to bivouac so the...
