Again, I want to thank you guys for all the invaluable information. I've learned so much on this subject.
So now the conundrum... How do I turn my deuce into a reasonable representation of a Vietnam Era USMC War Wagon using 2 pics of one 5-ton and not offend the purists out there (too much)? As SgtMajHarper pointed out, I have to fix my hood markings, and I should change the unit designation over to a transportation company for starters. My initial thought is to copy the basic layout of the 5-ton from the pics, but put two .50's in the forward corners of the gunbox. No armor on the doors unless I can figure out how to still keep it street legal. The ring and .50 stay on the cab because I put too much time and effort into mounting it. The gun box armor will be two-layer, but most likely aluminum to save weight. I could go with the wooden planking instead of armor if the cost of aluminum is too much? It's historically accurate, but I think it lacks the "cool factor". Sandbags in between the armor would be filled with foam or plastic pellets for weight savings as well. Radio would be a non-functioning unit mounted in the gun box. And what radio?
I'd make sure to label it as a representation at shows. Probably put up a display board with pics of actual gun trucks with data and other historical info.
Thoughts? Opinions? Remember, be gentle. I'm a Marine so I'm sensitive and my feelings are easily hurt...
