Description


Thank you for your kind comments about my previous models. I am a peaceful man, hating violence, weapons and war and loving life. How many time, money, energy and lifes wasted to destroy and kill instead of building a peaceful future, probably since the early days of Humanity. How many hours to create a hand-axe, a bifacial stone, to cave someone else head? But I am fond of History. So, don't look at this model as a glorification of the war and the weapons but only as a testimony. This is an old model, made around ten years ago revisited and upgraded. My ultimate war reference. All my future models will be historical too, but without refering to war. In 1940, with war looming, General Motors Corp. developed a six-wheel drive (6×6) truck that entered U.S. Army service as the CCKW350. GIs called it the "Deuce and a Half," in reference to its 2½-ton cargo capacity. By war's end GMC had produced more than a half-million Deuces, fitted with a variety of configurations aft of the cab, including a cargo bed, water and gas tanks, enclosed vans, air compressors, dump bodies and a tractor mount for hauling semitrailers. GMC's primary consumer for the truck was the Army. International Harvester built its own version, the M-5H-6, for the U.S. Navy and Marines, while Studebaker built the US6 model primarily for the Allies through the Lend-Lease program. The Studebaker US6 (M16A) is a class of 2.5-ton trucks manufactured by Studebaker during World War II, produced in the United States from 1941–1945 and in the Soviet Union beginning in 1942. The US6 had a Hercules built six-cylinder gasoline engine that produced 94 horsepower (70 kW), with a five-speed transmission plus a two speed  transfer case. Production was divided between GMC producing trucks for the US Army, Studebaker Corporation producing 2.5-ton trucks for Lend-Lease, and International Harvester producing for the US Navy & Marines. Three primary manufacturers produced over 900,000 2.5-ton trucks in all, in both 6x4 and 6x6 axle/wheel versions, with approximately 200,000 Studebaker trucks built in thirteen variations, including dump truck and tractor models. At the request of the Army, Studebaker also developed an open-cab version of the US6 in 1942, and built 10,006 of them during 1942 and 43.  These trucks used a completely different cab design without wind wings.  Manufacture of the open-cab trucks was assigned to other companies in March 1943, after which Studebaker built only closed-cab trucks using the M-series model C9 cab. If you want to look at two very interesting historical images made with this model, look at my friend MARCOPOL's gallery on RR.

C'est absolument impressionnant de précision, de réalisme...je ne sais pas si tu es le plus grand créateur mais, pour moi, tu l'es ! Quant à la guerre, dans une autre vie, j'enseignais à mes étudiants que l'on devrait supprimer le droit de la guerre qui, en posant des règles, fait que la guerre ressemble à un jeu, sauvage, certes mais un jeu...du genre 'Hé ! il triche ! il n'a pas le droit de canarder ici !"...je me souviens de cette vidéo, lors de la première guerre du Golfe où on était dans un avion Etats-Unien et l'on voyait le carnage au sol...à la fin j'attendais "Game Over - Please play again - It's more fun to compete"...S'il n'y avait pas ce droit, les humains seraient d'une telle sauvagerie qu'ils finiraient bien par avoir honte, non ?
