Would like to attempt a 1/24 scale build of a 4.5 in rocket launcher for the back of a jeep.
Can any one point me in the right direction for some drawings. The only other alternative is to buy a 1/35 scale kit of the launcher and take measurements from it.
Thanks

look for Scale Military Vehicle Conversion by Duncan Howarth

I have this book & I'm fairly certain that it includes a comprehensive how-to for the Jeep T27 rocket launcher with drawings....
I'll have to check, but I'm away from my library for a while...

This Spanish site has a build log here Kalkin website

Thanks for the reply. I do not get to the scratch build forum to often.
The book look's good but temporarily out of stock, the Spanish web sight well a few steps in the build should have had photo's taken.
Again thanks for the leads. Dave
