This was a fun project.  The 75mm guns had been languishing in my spares box for perhaps 40 years.  The halftrack bits and the Dodge trucks for at least 15 years and likely much longer.  It's great to bring old kits back to life, and make something I can't get commercially.

My 1938 US Army project is designed for several types of warfare, including US intervention France, in September, 1939, and of course War of the Worlds, as in the Orson Wells radio broadcast of October, 1938.
