I've been wanting to build something from the Korean War for some time, and found a grainy  B&W photo of BGen Rockingham's tactical CP (?) from Korea. I had the Tamiya M8 kit handy, so with one photo, I decided to try this conversion. Of course, once I had it painted, a friend provided me about a dozen photos which highlighted all my mistakes! C'est la vie!

I do plan on correcting the AoS number and adding the Commonwealth Division shield. But that cam net took too long to make, so its staying in place under the artistic license clause.

The real thing:

Pretty simple conversion (as was the real M8)

Some basic painting

Markings... I think I am going to re-do these.  I found some stencils to paint the "87" and a smaller 5-pointed star for his General plate
