Well, I don't know about outstanding, but thank you for the compliment.  It does build up nicely right out of the box.  I enjoyed this build, and I would build this kit again; but I think I would try to back date it to 1916.

Thanks, guys.  I appreciate the compliments.

Jim, you won't be disappointed.  The kit goes together well.

Ken, what are you using for the fifth-wheel?

Jim the 5th wheel is pretty simple on these.

Thanks, Charlie.

Ken, the fifth wheel might be simple, but that lift mechanism sure isn't!  As I was building mine, I was wondering what the load capacity was.  Three tons?  Five, maybe?  Don't know.  I have seen photos of Mack AC trucks with Renault FT17 tanks in the back, and those are 7.2 tons; but I don't know if those Army versions had heavier suspensions or not.
