ikar Posted October 24, 2020 Share Posted October 24, 2020 Has anybody picked up their copy of the A.F. Security Police M-706 Commando Car? Mine arrived a few days ago and I intend to get two more, one for each of the color schemes I know of. Two were in most of our squadrons but there was a third that showed up when we were given a couple from another base North of us. As usual there are parts for other versions included and these need to be removed from the kit before building. The floor of the hull needs to be covered to hide the sink holes and lettering for the V-150 version if you intend to have the blast doors open to see the interion. Having them provide the parapit armor sides and blast doors waves a lot of trouble and time. With the interior available ot be displayed, there are some things that need to be changed or added. If you want, to., there needs to be a right seat across from the driver and seat belts could be added, though I don't know of anyone who normally used them. I never did and the team I was carrying were either sitting in the seats and leaning against the hull or engine compartment walls. The rest were usually sleeping on the floor on their equipment bags. If needed they were quick to be ready. The hull interior walls had padding in places near the seats and there were a couple extra things that could be added, like a fold down table and a shelf near the right rear twheel well hump. There are a number of things that could be added, but if you don't, most people will never know. The color chart is in question as far as the cammo version goes. With with the exception of the two we got in from the other squadron, the only version we saw were the overall green and the three color paint job. The sheet calls for 4 colors, including a brown. I think they may have used a vehicle for reference that had somebody paint a civilian owned one and it was painted wrong. Normally we had tan and two greens that looked very close to the colors of a F-4 or 105. /app.photobucket.com/u/ikar_photos/a/afab7fd9-f7d0-4f42-9497-f1ad2526644c/p/477fb745-bc6c-4d7d-aca5-7a0ab60ff4ef][IMG]https://hosting.photobucket.com/albums/cc4/ikar_photos/Air%20Force%20Security%20Police/.highres/Scan%201_zpsl1gyo7hn.jpg Quote Link to post Share on other sites
