Prepping for a future project. (A) Does anybody make 1/35 USMC div / regt markings? Looking for 3d Marine Div. or 12th Marine regt. 1960s era. Also, anybody have info on the M38A1 wading set? Seen a couple restored one with the pipes on the passenger side. Only period shot I've seen confirms the side, but little else.

When I was building my M38 with wading gear, I found the below pics. The vehicles are pretty much the same in the engine compartment, just a different body and taller engine. The intake system is identical though. The intake stack attaches to the side of the air cleaner in place of the little button cap on the front side. The exhaust stack simply bolts onto the end of the kit part which has a flange to fit it to. The rest is just a couple supports to attach to and hold the extensions up.
