  Hi Stan

  Thank you for posting your DUKW and giving me the spark of interest again. Would you mind answering a few questions?
Here I go, what scale is it? Where did you get the running parts for it? What did you use for suspension? Does it also go into the water ?

 Thanks For your Help/Information.
 George

Hi George thank you for your interest in my DUKW. You have asked if I could supply plans for this model. Sadly the answer is no I built my model using pictures taken at Duxford  and the tank museum at Beverley. Sorry I can not help more. :(( :(( :(( :(( :(( :((but if you need any information at all please PM me :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))

Hi

Deans Marine do a 1/10th scale semi-kit of a DUKW (my example was of an appallingly low standard and the hull took a lot of work to sort out). Running gear/suspension was obtained from a German company but were very expensive. http://www.mts-boenning.de/index.php?inc=inc_produkte&kategorie=D.U.K.W.&menu=menu_katalog
