America Prepares for War

My In progress Project(s)

My current projects will be a small focus on vehicles produced before the industry transformed their factories to making military vehicles, planes and parts to support the WWII war effort.

I came to this conclusion while doing research for my next project(s) based on the models I have in my small stash. When I started doing research on the 1941 Chevy Pickup, I was mesmerized by it's history and the history of the industry at the start of WWII.

The difference between the 2011/2017 and the 1999 version of the 1941 Chevy Pickup is more than what scalemates lists. Scalemates lists that the decals have been changed, and that's true; however, The 2011/2017 release also includes:
  • Chrome rocker cover
  • Chrome air cleaner
  • Chrome sport wheels
  • Wide tires
Everything else is the same.
