Well Joe I'm working on brackets and screens for the rear deck and exhaust on the Jadgpanther I'm putting together.

I've got three things going and close to completion at the moment:

1) I'm building a new gun truck miniature.
2) I'm converting the AFV Club M18 HellCat into the M39 Armored Utility Vehicle.
3) I'm building a lot of custom parts and details for fleshing out Polar Lights' Jupiter 2 Spaceship.

sounds like an interesting project, please share some pics when you take some!

im surprised no one has released a conversion for one of the hellcats on the market

I think it's because information is a little hard to come by. It took me some time to gather enough photos and the technical manual to feel comfortable making the conversion attempt. Plus, it's a little known vehicle and I'm sure small cottage industry producers would be wary of returns on producing a conversion kit too.

Nothing to report for scratching but some kitbashing

Actually I have several 'scratch' projects going at the moment.

I have already started my 'LuLu' project. This is a seldom seen and not well known mineroller variant of the Sherman.

I am also working on a rather unique version of the Australian Chevy CMP as a mobile crane.

Another more long-term project is a HEMTT-based truck sporting Mattrack's.

I have several more that are 'floating' around, but these three have been taking their turns in the 'batter's box'.
