Jeep Ambulance

Further research brought me images like this one, of a jeep ambulance later in the Italian campaign.

So of course I needed one!  I took a jeep from a previous project, and constructed a superstructure from styrene rods and a stretcher from brass rods and green stuff.  Some figures were easily converted into casualties.

A dab of paint, et voilà!  A jeep ambulance, with a couple of nurses from Perry Miniatures' "Lukewarm in Cairo" set:
