M998 IED Gun Truck Academy
This model represents a M998 IED Gun Truck based on the Academy kit.
I have got inspiration for the model from pictures in the “HMMWV in Action” book by Signal Squadron.
I have built from scratch the machine gun support and the fuel/water cans holder in the back.
I’m particularly proud of the lashing ratchet that keeps the spare tyre on the roof: it is my first try to build such a piece and it seems to me that it came out quite good.
Backpacks are from the Legend kit LF1115 US Army Back Pack Set.
Model completed in July 2011.
