My dad just finished this awesome 1/144th C-47 known as the "Fat Cat" from the Jolly Rogers 90th BG. The skull and cross bombs were weird looking, so I repurposed the 1/144th B-24D "Moby Dick" tail art for Fat Cat. She'll look great next to the 90th BG A-20 Base Hack and the 5 or 6 Jolly Rogers B-24s as well!

Hi Tom,

The 2.5 Ton Trucks were part of the 21st Century Toy Line that were once available in Wal-Mart. I just looked on Ebay and didn't see ANY which I find surprising.
The covered truck was custom made by my dad: http://www.warbirdinformationexchange.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=64595

There are other options out there however:
