Finished a few more trucks with cargo. Two of these have the canvas covering the entire cargo area. The first one I did looked really nice IMHO.

The middle four finished over last few weeks.

I like Tamiya nato green. I usually use a airbrush but found a paint brush works just as well.

Your motor pool is EXTREMELY POLLUTED. The Germans have forbidden any movement on roads by your units and ordered the immediate cleanup of your area. You must remove all polluted earth to approved sites and have all vehicles certified as properly sealed before road clearances are issued. Start with the trucks necessary to haul the dirt. You will have to replace the dirt removed, as well. A number of soda cans and some trash was found in several of the latrines in your area. You must remove those items from the latrine pits. They will be inspected again in three days. Notify Range Control when you have restored your motor pool.

I guess out maintenance group will need to leave the GS since the land is polluted. We will need to abandon the 4 year lease because of the pollution on and in the area leased.

You are EXTREMELY CONFUSED if you think CofC occupies even one square inch of Gator State. You have acquired so much territory you can no longer keep track. The Ukrainian farmers will likely start towing your stuff off as abandoned because you've simply lost track of a few motor pools.

MLRS reload Hemtts with a few trailers.
The trailers idea came from Jason, showed me how he made the trailers.

Nice work Chris! Great looking trucks! I especially like the rocket loads on the HEMTT / HEMAT combo. Very nice!
