1938 US Army Update

These US Army vehicles are part of my 1938 US Army.  They are all very old models, some are perhaps as much as 80 years old.  I got most of them from hobby shows and eBay.  Many were in very bad condition, dented, mis-molded and most were missing a lot of their paint.

These are 37mm anti-aircraft guns.  I am priming them.

Their original paint was in very poor condition.  I soaked them in Simple Green to remove the old paint.

Now I am using a white primer to start bringing them back into service.  Most were missing some or all of their wheels.

Today is 9/11.  Be sure to remember those who were killed and those who continue to defend our liberties, including our allies from the UK, Japan, Australia, NZ, Canada, NATO, and many other nations!
