The M73 dummy project for the Cadillac Gage V100 that served in Vietnam with the 504th MP's is just about complete. Still have to put together the charging assembly but the heavy lifting is done. Would be nice to hear from some 504th Vietnam vets that was familiar with the "Blood Sweat and Tears" V100

I liked them when they looked like chrome gansta guns.

Good job, could pass the 2 foot test unless you had someone who knew them well, but for the general public and the ATF, I bet you'll get a visit. :) I've already let them know.

I can do a high polished set for you so your V can properly pop at the ATL car shows:cool:

While we are making the last few parts for the dummy M73's, a friend of mine called and asked if I needed a Ferret (like there's anyone who doesn't) and so we ended up with one. Everyone knows I have been looking for a photo of the 1969 Blood Sweat and Tears V100 from the early 70's and so far have not found anything. I get this 1954 British Ferret and in the matter of hours find a clear photo of it in service in the early 60's

The turret is nicely built fake but it rides on a legit turret bearing like was used on the T50 turrets and M26 and M27 cupolas.

Anyway, this acquisition will inspire us to build replica fenders and other parts that are no longer available for this little car
