Thanks for all the Positive feedback. I've been working on final tear down, paint, and assembly over the last couple of weeks. I'll post some completion pictures very soon.

Thanks for the positive feedback. It cost me around $900.00 to build. It took me around eight months. I really only worked on it after 8pm Monday though Thursday. If you had more time, you could build it quicker.

That's amazing. If you could expedite the process, you could probably sell these (for reasonable profit) to select collectors/enthusiasts/vets who would love to have a scaled down mule to play around with. Or even use to drive to the mailbox. I believe I asked before, but do you have any plans or CAD drawings of this thing? I'm amazed, it's beautiful.

Thanks again for the positive feedback. I do have full engineering on this. 35 engineering drawings to be correct. I have 3D CAD models of all the parts as well.

Can I see some detail on that data plate on the front of the left framerail? It looks so authentic! How'd you do that?

I picked up a real M274A military mule data plate on ebay. I rivited it on the same spot as the full size version. I engraved it with the info of the half scale M274A military mule.

SPUD GUN! Or a golf ball gun fed from an air tank would be awesome so you can rip out a lot of rounds. But there's no replacement for that spud gun bang.
