M 54 A1 Ace of Spades.

The Gun Truck is the M 54 A1 Ace of Spades. The cab is a home casted resin one. I made the masters from a highly modified M 35 A1 AFV Club kit cab. The chassis is from the M 925 Shelter truck kit by Italeri. The gun box and armor is scratch built from Evergreen Plastic stock. The truck was built from photos of the actual truck and from the 1/1 replica of the Ace of Spades. The truck and the M 151 MUTT gun jeep was built for the Museum at Ft. Eustis VA.

Hey Animal! I like this truck very much! Looks really good How did you make the front tires? Cheers, Pedro

First off thanks Pedro. The tires were made and casted by a good friend. I made a mold from his castings to make more wheels when I have a need for them.
