I'm posting this for RetiredMike, as between us, it managed to get in the wrong place.


This is a 1/32nd scale Ford Model T based Light Car Patrol that was used in the Mideast in WWI for the Battle of Palestine/Jerusalem and to protect camps from Senussi Arab attacks. It is based on the MPC kit which is a relabeled Airfix kit sold in the US. That was lucky for me because the T's for the LCP's were supplied from Ford in the UK (right hand drive).  

The LCP's were 1916 Fords with the brass radiators and squared bonnets equipped with a Vickers MG. The 1917's were the rounded black radiator with rounded bonnet (similar to my ambulance) equipped with a Lewis MG.  I take 'poetic' license melding the two.  The Model T was popular because it was simple, light, nimble and well built.  Resources on the net say logs mention no major failures of the T's.  These were modified with a condenser on the fender which caught boil over so it could be returned to the radiator.  They also had wider tires than the standard Model T.  

Scratchbuilding provided the bed, MG mounts, tool boxes, liquid tins and rear half of the cab.  Resicast provided the Lewis Guns and ammo boxes that are 1/35, but look OK with the car.  Tamiya provided the Desert Yellow paint and weathering kits and Creatix acrylic black wash was used.

The WIP can be seen in the Community Build Area.



















Thanks to all for your comments. It was a blast.

Mike

Outstanding Mike. I love everything about it.

You have considerable scratch building skills and they really show here.

Well done!

I think it is awesome. The weathering is not over done. It looks like a well used military rig.    Two thumbs up on this one.

Here is my build for the exercise.  It's a German A7V Sturmpanzer which saw service in March of 1918.  It was crewed by 18 men with a max capacity of 26.  20 examples were produced with a surviving one on dispaly in Australia.

As I said in the wip thread, nice job.... Must have been quite daunting seeing one of these trundling towards you back in the early 1900's.

I like it. wish I had one to park in the Walmart parking lot. Then people could bang it with their doors all they wanted. Bet it wouldn't happen once.

I think it looks great Paul. The camo is ncely done too. Just can't remember the scale.

The Brits called this thing 'The Moving Fortress'. It was almost twice as fast as the Male MkV, so perhaps it was just as well it entered service so late in WW1 and in so few numbers too.

Found these and thought you'd like to see them:

HI Paul,

That looks great, I've seen photos of the one in Australia, aren't they having to renovate it after some flooding...

Al, thank you for sharing the interior photos of this beast, it certainly does make you wonder if the final outcome would have been different had they managed to produce a much larger number of these things...

Exactly, they must have been darn big to comfortably fit so many men. Great to see the different approaches to armored vehicles. Thanks to all!
