The Dingo seems to be an increasingly popular and adaptable machine, let's give it it's own spot here.

Here's some pics of Czech army Dingo 2 vehicles:

Well, of course the Dingo was extensively reworked from the original version you've posted to the Dingo 2. ;D

Thought a Dingo could use another axle and make a 6x6 vehicle. When you take the rear axle of a Dingo kit,  what to do with the left-overs? What to do with half a truck? A half-track! In the drawing, it's an M113 running gear missing a roadwheel. Don't know whether it's to size, though. Think you could mount all kinds of stuff on these, from radio cabins to artillery pieces (think French CAESAR)

Cheers,
Moritz

Those look great!  I've always loved tandem rear axles and half-tracks for appearance, so I like these a lot.

Cheers,

It seems the half-track has fallen out of favour whilst the multi-wheeled truck remains viable.  I agree with Logan though that both are quite nice looking designs.

The Australian Ford 'Dingo' (1942) postdates the Daimler Dingo (1939).

Daimler Dingo MK-III Scout Car built by Serge Dompierre (1/35th scale Tamiya kit)

One thing I never really understood about the way the Daimler Dingo was arranged inside with the driver positioned as if they were a contortionist.  Must have been damned uncomfortable for anyone that was tall and stout to have to sit in such a position for any length of time.

Marvelous, let's take a cramped vehicle and throw in some big
guns and make it even more cramped.
