US Recon Squad in a Jeep

Here is a fun little project that I have been trying to finish for more than a year, and I am still not done. But now I have something to show for my trouble. This is a US Army Recon Squad for WW2 gaming. I started with a New Millennium Toys Jeep and then added the crew figures from Victory Force Miniatures.

I mounted the jeep on a base and, of course, glued the wheels in place. I did a little weathering but the jeep is otherwise as it came in the box. Not bad for a $5 jeep. The figures actually cost more than twice the the price of the jeep!
I have plans to build one more squad and then a platoon command. The platoon command will have three crew and a 50cal HMG.
