|21st Century US Military
This page focuses primarily on post-Cold War US units, primary Army, with a focus on the wars in Middle East. In general, if you don't see it here, it is probably on the other US modern page (this is particularly true with both fixed- and rotor-wing aircraft)
APCs & IFVs
HMMWVs, Jeeps & FAVs
Full US Units
Post-Cold War version of the Abrams, an excellent model from GHQ. This one has a GHQ mine plow mounted and GHQ's NATO chevron decals.
Same model in desert colors (and, amazingly enough, both machine guns)
GHQ M1A2 Abrams TUSK
GHQs excellent new model of the recent M1A2 with the Tank Urban Survival Kit
A good model, particularly as it comes with the option of including both a commander and a loader manning their machine guns. Baggage is made with bake-hard clay.
|APCs & IFVs
Recent model from GHQ, and a fine one. I've added a fair bit of baggage sculpted out of clay.
More versions, in a slightly lighter color
Part of the recent GHQ Stryker Range. A fine set of models of the modern US APC widely used in Iraq.
Another Version, with the headlights painted (though not always well...)
Stryker Command Version
Needs to have aerials added
Stryker Mortar Carrier
Stryker Assault Gun
This version is done with a more "flat" paint scheme. I also tried to paint more details, but still missed the shovels.
Stryker Cavalry Vehicle
Alternate Versions Of The Stryker
Purely hypothetical, using spare hulls and turrets I had lying around
Terror War model from GHQ -- a fine model
Another Terror War model from GHQ
Four-whelel version of the above model
A resin model of the prototype that lost to the F-22 from GameCraft Miniatures.
Shapeways model. I should have added ordnance, but there you go.
M1 Assault Breacher
New model from GHQ, comes with two types of plows
M104 Wolverine Bridgelayer
Explosive removal vehicle from GHQ -- a really impresive model. A big model, and very impressive looking. There was one outside Fed-Ex field in 2011 when I took my boy to see the Patriots play the Redskins.
The mine plow is extremely well detailed, but somewhat fragile.
A new model from GHQ
A fine GHQ model with added baggage
New GHQ models -- very cool
M777 With FMTV Prime Mover
Modern 155mm gun from GHQ, along with its regular prime mover. Crews are from GHQ.
GHQ M106 In Desert Colors
|Air Defense Systems|
A fine model from GameCraft Miniatures. Now just waiting for them to release the radar unit...
This is with a GHQ prime mover modified...
HEMTT A3 Centurion Phalanx
A very cool model from Masters of Military
HEMTT L3 AHS HE Laser
Not really an anti-air vehicle, but a cool model from Masters of Military nonetheless.
CinC model in desert colors
Rehabbed GHQ Model
HETS M1070 with M1000 Trailer
A fine model from Shapeways, designed by Masters of Military. Truly rivals the best put out by any traditional manufacturer.
This is the Gamecraft Miniatures version of the same model. Equally good, but significantly cheaper.
|Trucks, HMMWVs, Jeeps & FAVs|
CinC models with AGLs and baggage
HMMWVs w/Add-On Armor
M1091 FMTV Tanker
(I kind of botched the hazardous material symbol on the side; it looks better at a distance... sort of.)
M1086 FMTV LWB Cargo Handler
HEMTT Flat Bed
GHQ model, conversion kit from Game Craft Miniatures
HEMTT Gun Trucks
Conversions of GHQ Models
This is the GHQ version of the gun truck -- an excellent model, but includes no crew members.
Mk 48 M14 LVS with SixCon Containers
Fantastic models of the heavy Marine truck from Masters Of Military
GHQ Infantry In Desert Uniforms
With a smattering of forest camo helmet covers and kevlar vests
These are Dragons; there are no decent models of the newer Javelin ATGM
Taking cover behind a CinC stone wall
Don't know what the white crud on him is...
Machine Gun Teams
More Desert-Painted Infantry from GHQ
US Stryker Unit
Essentially a battalion-sized unit, this is the GHQ Stryker Combat Command
GHQ Modern US Urban Combat Team, Full Seat
