i hate to be "that guy"
Your paint job is amazing
however your flag is 'blowing' in the wrong direction
Uniform flags are always "advancing"

Thanks for all the feedback, I'll post the colours I used in a future post.

Not so. That particular brand of nonsense is a modern idea. It hadn't been dreamt up yet back in the 40s. I guess they had better things to do.



If you want to nitpick something, "Airbourne" may well be a correct spelling somewhere (like in an Australian rock band), but that ain't how the U.S. Army spell it.  :)

Lovely work on the Jeep and personnel. The colours are excellent. The BAM/Warlords Jeep is excellent. I'm using mine for the USMC an Aussies.

Keep up the fab work.
