Love that vehicle. In 1970 I was driving the back roads to visit my uncle's farm in central Michigan. There was one of these for sale at another farm. I was a poor grad student at the time so had to pass. I should have postponed tuition for a semester to buy it :)

OK, since no one else has brought it up, I have to ask about the color. The shade of green is too bluish for a U.S. vehicle. So, are you supposing that the Russians re-painted it in one of their own shades? (It was my understanding that they left Lend-Lease equipment in the shade of OD it came in

On a positive note: I love the actual painting technique, especially how you did the wheels!

It has been painted in Protective K as I said in the original post.

This colour was generally used by Soviets on trucks and other vehicles rather than tanks (though Tanks do appear in it).

The Russians did, on occasion, repaint lendlease vehicles if the need arose. As mine is one that is intended to serve in the Balkans liberating Belgrade it's based on one reported to have been repainted after prior service. Many in that theatre also sported a camouflage pattern on the M3 Scout Cars using Soviet paints.

So again, saying a blanket all vehicles stayed in Lendlease supplied US Olive Drab is largely true, there are of course exceptions.

OK, thanks for the clarification. "Protective K" means nothing to me.
