Slightly OTT, does anyone know what sort of dozer they flew in with the Chindits? They were glider borne IIRC.

It was the Clarkair CA-1, which although comparatively tiny weighed a lot more than the payload of the WACO they flew them in. I'd post a pic but my computer won't let me, but if you Google Clarkair CA-1 there's pictures of the one in IWM.

And weathered.  Not rusty (really not a fan of that) but dirty and scratched up.  Some of its original yellow poking through too

I'm not sure it would print at 20mm...  But it might. 
Drop me a PM and I'll explore it...

1/72 versions
Couple of minor bits of damage but nothing significant.  Even the control levers printed!
