Like the trucks. Canvas should be original color OD and not painted. Deteriorates the material.

Nice work on the drone trucks, Chris. I assume the drones are 3D models that are printed. Am I correct?

No, the drone are from modern Harpoon naval aircraft pack, 1/2400, as I recall.
The two with props are Greyhounds, C-2 or C-3. The airplane on the trailer is an F-4, or A-4 with nose cut off.
The 3 I’m working on are AV-6 with nose cut back, and vertical stabilizer cut down. These are going on MAN 5-ton truck. Will need to repaint some with these.
I have used helicopters from the game Fortress America. Also used a few of the jet/bombers as well from the game.

Balzac Republic UH-1 Hueys, fire trucks in the back.
I should work on the UPS Vans in front.

Can you determine the types of prop planes these are? For special assault teams.

Going back to 2016. Made a trailer from truck frame. Have a TLAM trailer and some Italian Centauro that are to be painted.

SWAT, command van. The CROWS on top has been trimmed down to represent a .308 semi-automatic vs. M-2 .50 cal.

That's a lot of rockets, Chris! I hope you have MLRS and HIMARS standing by waiting to fire them!
