That M5A1 is something I'd like to do. Some reason I've been real interested in pre-war stuff. Not sure if this qualifies but it looks like it would.

Yes Moon puppy , a Spectre gun ship... What a Face
I always wanted to do a "cut a way" of the plane ....some day..
A friend of mine was a gunner in the gun-ship..He gave me all the plain's on the weapons & brake down for the gun ship.

Cheers buddy,

Not sure, but I thunked that the M5A1 was not post-war, that it took the place of the M3 Stuart with the Octagonal turret with rivets............I THINK

For you, I htink you need to take a close look at the pack howitzer. i think it would work behind something if you have issue with 37mm that you have.


Laura, as with you, I am seriously drooling over the T-34 with full interior! I was going to get an AEF or similar for a kit I have in 1/35th, but I could always save that one for a conversion or........

I think we all have wanted to do a cut away aircraft. I'm planning on doing a P47 Thunderbolt with multiple panels opened, not brave enough to do full cut away. But scratch, AC130, Ohhh MANN!! Any idea of what scale you'll do?

I thought it would be cool to do it in 1/16 scale....even that scale would be big.
I would just do where all the gun's are and not the hole plane.
Was thinking of starting out with a plexie tube as a start.

That would be about a 9 foot wingspan if my math is right. good idea of just doing the cargo bay. I hope you do a WIP report on it, if not, make a DVD and I'll buy it!

Depending on what variant they have a pair of 20mm Vulcans, 40mm Bofars and 105mm Howitzer.

I thought they were using 30mm Bushmasters now, instead of the 40mm (replacement parts problem)
