U.S. 2 1/2 Ton 6x6 Cargo Truck Accessory Set
Modeling the U.S. Army in WWII


This is really all you need to trick out Tamiya's excellent "Deuce and a Half." The set offers an M2 .50 machinegun and ring mount, ammo boxes, rolled canvas tarps and doors and jerry can rack and holders. Here you can find the towing hook for the winch cable and engine hood hold down hooks, which in my opinion should have been included as part of the basic model. Also included is a little puppy and diorama signage you can cut from the box.

Again the kit's parts go together well, and there is a helpful template for attaching the supports for the ring mount. You'll need to find some very thin clear plastic to create your own windows for the canvas doors, and attach some homemade straps to the empty jerry can holders. Other than that you don't need to do much more to give a little different look to a really great kit.
