How would you like to be manning that scout car at night and have to get out to take a leak and make at miss step! :o That could be one prickly situation.

I am curious as to paint schemes on half tracks. The Germans had a ton of them, but seems allied only stuck to a few that i have ever seen in pictures. It would be nice to have a few different options than just green. I know blasphemy

Hey Steve, Did you notice that the USA numbers of the top halftrack pictured in this thread and the one directly above are only 7 apart.
