The DUKW (pronounced "Duck") is the amphibious 2 1/2 ton truck used in WW2. There is a buildup picture of it here http://pmms.webace.com.au/ go to New Kits then to Italeri for the link. Here is a direct link that may work http://pmms.webace.com.au/newkitnews/nuremberg/it6392.htm
I surely want one...stop calling me Shirley.

Speaking of the DUKW, Skybow is releasing one too, the DUKW 353 2 1/2 ton. Is this the same or a different version of Italeries? Although no release dates to be found. They are also releasing an M37 Jeep, and an M52 105 SPH!

Tread--I am desperately trying to take advantage of your generous offer to secure a Tamiya M3 either Lee or Grant and a Sherman M4A3 for those bargain basement prices....is it still available?
thanks

No worries DJ...got your back
Just finished all my 'shopping' yesterday, (sale ended yesterday). I believe I've got everyone's orders filled. :-) Will be contacting everyone who participated a little later on.
