I'v decided to release the next CD a little early, which is entitled "SOF HMMWV's" It will include the following walkarounds:
USSF:
The GMV (DUMVEE);
The CIF HMMWV, a special unit within SF called Commander in Chief's In Extremis Force, which are the most radical of the SOF HMMWV's;
The M1114
The M1151
MARSOC (Marine Special Operations Command):
Their own different version of the GMV, with upgraded suspension;
Iraqi Army Recce Platoon, the closest thing to their own SOF, who routinely roll with USSF:
Their own M1114's

I've also added a file entitled "Mission Photos," with images of both mounted and dismounted patrols, many with our Iraqi counterparts.
Cost is $14.99, plus $2.50 shipping to US and Canada, or $3.80 anywhere else.

Apparently they're not necessary, but Bill is right. I'll post some up this evening.

Here's a teaser for you, Bill. The MARSOC GMV, in all its gaudy camouflaged glory. Fortunately, I've included shots of the sand colored version as well. These have modified suspensions which are clearly visible in the close ups, and differ from the USSF version.
By the way, your CD is already on the way. This should be a relatively easy scratchbuild for a man of your talents.

For all you HUMVEE fans out there, I highly recommend this CD; excellent walkarounds as usual with alot of different vehicles to wet your modeling pallete. My favorite section was the "Mission photos". Interesting pics showing guys what they do best: their job.
Again, another quality release from 18Bravo!

18 Bro
Sorry for my tardy response but you know why. I anxiously await my copy. Thanks for the effort to offer such inside glimpses of seldom seen vehicles.
Regards

I have to agree. I own all of the 18Bravo series, but this one is the best so far. If you want to do an OIF Humvee, this is the reference to use, especially if you like Special Ops stuff. As for the Mission Photos, you gotta dig the sequence (no pun intended) where they apparently dig through the floor of a house to find weapons.
Two big thumbs up!
