You know #216 the M5 winch half track could actually be done with the Monogram kit since you'd be binning most of the poorly detailed bits of the kit.

I remember seeing pictures of Schwimmwagens used in Holland and Italy during a couple of disastrous floods.

I believe this Ford may rather be a postwar French-built Ford F598T as it has a widened cab...

Yup, you're right the windscreen is wider and a bit more squared off. Hadn't noticed that before.

An amazing thread. I'm sure on my laptop I saved loads of pictures of Gamma Goats used by local fire departments. I'll post them when I'm next on it.

Postwar creativity by local enterprises, blacksmiths and tinkerers was virtually unlimited.
Just find a crane that looks right and copy it, total freedom as long as it looks as if it could work

This Ferret (?) armored car can be seen at the Murchison House Station in Western Australia that is famous for once being owned by an Indian prince named Mukarram Jah who had a passion for military vehicles . I'm not sure about the purpose of the visible mods...Looks like an armored paddock-basher
