Several years ago, I constructed a 1/35 Scale M29C and had a great time building this model.
Recently, I’ve been constructing 1/72 models of HEMTT’s (M1977 CBT’s & an M978) and HMMWV’s which are loaded onto OTTX, DODX, and TTDX flatcars which operate on my model layout that is set in the 1980’s.
After being given a model of a Willys MB (which I’ve decided to turn into a CJ-3A) I decided to search to see if there were any 1/72 models of M151’s and found that there were none.
However, while searching for the M151, I found that both M29 and M29C models are available in 1/72.
Since my layout is set in the ‘80’s, it would be unrealistic to depict an M29 or M29C in active military service.
However, it’d be really neat to show one that had been surplused and put into civilian or rescue service.
Since my layout is set in Marias Pass, Montana, I was hoping to find a prototype for a civilian/rescue M29 or M29C that operated in the “lower 48.”
I found pictures of 2 M29’s that apparently operated at McAlpine Lake and Park, California but these two Weasels are painted a shade of green that is close enough to olive drab that I worry that people who see this model will assume that I merely botched the paintjob.http://www.primeportal.net/transports/c ... 9c_weasel/
So, do any of you know where I could find other pictures of M29s or M29C’s in civilian service?
Thank you in advance.
