If your weapons carrier is a WC51 or WC52, then the Power Wagon is based
on the weapons carrier and not the other way round. I have a WC51 from 1943,
(named Betty Boop) which I fully restored before fitting a signals box on
for use with the National Guard here in Denmark. Any help you need with
parts, advice etc, just write.
