A few more 1:35 jeeps!

Well I'm back in the Jeep addiction again!  I'm not in a position to own the full size one (yet!), so I'm expending energy on making more of these 1:35 scale ones.  These are the first of many planned..  Both are based on the excellent Tamiya kit, with a few modifications.  The first represents a jeep during the D-Day landings, June 1944.  Note the white bumpers, shipping data on the passenger side, "left hand drive" warning on the tilt, and cammo netting.  The odd color star is a "gas paint" star.  The light green area would change color if under a chemical attack.  The tilt was covered in tea bag paper and came from Italieri's old kit.

The other is the Tamiya kit with Verlinden's "Calliope" rocket launcher conversion. This is a real vehicle, and several were made and used in Europe early in 1945 while the allies were making their way into Germany.  It was a area bombardment weapon, with no real accuracy, mainly point and shoot type artillery.  The Sherman tank was also fitted with these same tubes (though more) and used for the same purpose.
