Hi Dmitriy:
I have a few pics of the LRDG Chev in the Imperial War Museum. It may be of some use to you.

Hi Dmitriy,

Off to a cracking start, nice work. Only observation is you have used a No 4 Rifle and in the early war period this is more likely to have been a SMLE.

Here are some links, but you may have these already:


You'll find additional pics linked here:

No 19 Wireless


Lewis Gun


Another useful site


This is a link to Jeff Webb's Breada truck build


Vickers MG site


I'll posted up some IWM references later.

That should keep you going for a while.
