The Start 

 

While browsing on line through one of my favorite photo archives at the Australian War Museum, Canberra ( http://www.awm.gov.au/ ) I discovered a photo showing an unusual semi trailer unit loaded with barrels in a convoy on the North/South Military Road (Now the Stuart Highway) in the Northern Territory, Australia C.1942. 

The photo was pretty dark but the tractor unit appeared to be a conventional Ford truck but with a GMC-CCKW open style military cab on it. This started a major hunt for information which lead to a surviving closed cab model located in South Australia and a friend, Bob Moseley, kindly took plenty of photos and crawled over and under it taking measurements for me. Bob also found a surviving semi trailer and once again sent me photos and measurements of it as well. So between AWM photos and the photos & measurements from Bob the work began.

History

The Australian Imperial Forces (A.I.F.) during WW2 adapted and used a lot of different types of vehicles both Modified Civilian Pattern (MCP), which were mainly 2 wheel drive, and Military 4 wheel drive. In 1941 they purchased from Ford Australia, 3 ton, 158inch WB, 4X2 trucks to be used for the purpose of tractor units with 7 ton semi trailers attached. 

The early production models were closed cab but the later orders were canvas topped models. All shared the front bodywork, from the front door pillar forward, and mechanical specifications of the civilian Ford truck except for an Eaton 2 speed rear axle that the Army specified for all types of MCP trucks. Now the trailer units were semi-permanently attached to the tractor units, the turn tables being totally different to the ‘fifth wheel’ on tractor units today. It took considerable effort to separate the trailer from the tractor.

 By Alan McNeilly

 

Introduction

Resicast make the only 1/35 scale 3 inch mortar around that I know of. This set contains 1 x 3 inch mortar complete with a crew of Paratroopers so probably a first on both accounts. This set has been around for a good number of years but for those unfamiliar with it here is a quick look at what you get.
