    I just completed my latest which is a scratch-built Federal 604 as it might have appeared in France in 1944 with the 3rd Field Park Coy, RCE 3rd Cdn. Inf. Div. Geoff Lacy Drawings, figures, truck mirrors and wipers were from Dan Taylor Modelworks, decals from Pete Marshal (Aleran) and assistance advice was provided by Les Freathy, Richard Allebone and Mike Starmer.

    I surely remember the days of scratch-built. Thirty years younger and no grandchildren to watch!

    Thanks to you both dryan67 and Dave for your kind words. Dave, I'm already working on a CMP Line Construction Vehicle of the Signal Corps with pole trailer.......I find it keeps me put of trouble ;)

    Absolutely fantastic work!

    I knew of the 606 but hadn't heard of the 604 before. If it is convienient could you post some of your reference sites for the 604?

    Here is one I like on the 606:

    Thanks Dave. I haven't found any sites like the 606 for the 604 but the 604's do show on some of the posters on the 606 site you referenced. I used period photos where possible and found a few on various sites. The Maple Leaf Up site is quite good for that kind of thing and also modeling friends like Les Freathy are usually very helpful with photos and information.
