    Thank you. She isn’t done yet. Hopefully this winter I’ll be able to get the inner layer of armor (PSP) installed.

    War Wagon

    That's one good looking truck! The .50 mounts are a work in progress. Since I open the truck bed for people, mostly kids, I set mine to maximize internal space. As time and money allow, I'll continue modifying them till I get them just right. As for the rear mount, I plan on buying one more...

    Found my siren!!! It's a 6 volt, which I'll have to figure out how to power. War Wagon is still 24 volt.

    War Wagon

    Mounts are installed, all .50's (replicas) in place. Point of order... if you purchase one of these .50's, they will require tweaking to get them to fit. All 3 of mine had to have the rear mount lugs reamed and the external side of the rear lug ground down. The front may need reaming (2 of mine...

    War Wagon

    Got three new mounts built and bolted down. The pintle adapters are installed but I still need to drill a hole through the pipe and pintle on one of the mounts because there's a hair bit too much movement. Ammo can trays are all installed. Still need to paint the M23 mount and ammo trays. Red I...

    War Wagon

    Time for some upgrades. Not as much as my ultimate goal but there's room for improvement. I found a source for the U.S. machine gun pedestal mount socket. If you want a secure mount for your gun mounts, this is one way to go. Very well built and fit the mount like a glove. Down side, I need to...

    War Wagon

    Update Update: almost ready. Painting is almost done, same with the trucks name. Vic 1 installed including positions for 4 gunners/NCOIC. Still missing one power cord. I'm on the lookout for a cable that goes from the battery to the MX 7777.

    War Wagon

    Vic 1 install in progress. Hooked up the radio so it looks correct. Maybe one of these days I'll find a working radio. No pics today, progress was in the little things. Installing wires, clamps, correct power cables. I'll post tomorrow with pics if I get the painting done. I figured out how...

    War Wagon

    War Wagon Update It's been a while since I posted anything on War Wagon, figured it was quiet enough I can jot down some things. The steel plate is working really good. It wouldn't work with out plywood backing though. Three sides (drivers, pax and front) are installed. I've also used 2x12...

    War Wagon

    I looked at doing the same thing. I don't have access to a laser cutter, unfortunately. Some of the later armor was welded together without the rifle ports or bolt holes. I have a welder that can handle the 1/16 thickness. After looking at all the sources, both on and off line, I think I can...
