About Jim Lewis (GunTruck)

I love American AFV's from all eras and researching Vietnam-era Gun Trucks and US Army Pentomic and Atomic Battlefield Ordnance from the 1950's through the 1960's. Avid Sci-Fi fan and modeler as well - Star Wars, Space:1999, and Star Trek are favorites. Owner/Master Miniaturist - GunTruck Studios....


Got it! Thanks - and I will inquire about the Museum and Monument possibilities in a follow-up email... Gunnie

Gunney, Love your Sherman in 761st livery! What decals if any did you use? Bill

I used Railroad Scenics dry-transfers for some of the "COOL" and "INC" portions of the logos and the crewmember names where appropriate. "STUDS" is hand-painted as are Tank Commander Daniel "Club Foot" Cardell's nickname "Buttons" and the Turret scripts listing wives and girlfriends. The National Symbols on the Turret Roof and Engine Deck are airbrushed over vinyl masks. Gunnie

Jim, That looks GREAT. You beat me to it in building one of the 761st tanks. Do you have plans to build one of the EZ-8 's they used in Europe? You're going have to find a 1/35th scale rooster to place on! HAHA That was a great story. Shadowfax

This looks GREAT! One item I have never seen modeled on a "Cool Stud" miniature is the rooster - Cool Stud.
