Nice job on  the jeeps  And I think you got the US uniform colors  down perfectly .  Wasn't too interested in the US jeep but  now  I think I can see a Rat Patrol diorama in my future  ::)

I have a third jeep:

And I was going to assembled as a US jeep, but I decided to do something different. I have already started collecting extra bits and will order a stowage set or two. My plan is to assemble the jeep into something resembling the old Tamiya SAS jeep kit. The specific kit is Tamiya's "British Special Air Service Jeep" (series No.33), and I still have my old instruction sheet for the kit from when I built it a very long time ago. I will need to collect a lot more Jerry cans for the project.

There are effectively 12 British and 12 US jerry cans per Allied Stowage set (two individual cans and four combined of each per sprue). The German set has eight (four per sprue).

I tend to use the German cans as British ones where placement obscures the W^D logo.

You can split the combined cans with a razor saw for length.

US long set (1+4+2+1)

British short (1+2+1G)

German medium (1+4B+1)

To detail the  Rubicons cans ,  remove the carry handle , add 3  bars for the carry part and a cross bar on the rear . IRC I used 1mm plastic rod . Its very fiddly ,as the pieces pull towards each other from the liquid glue , but it does work eventually

Bottom row , stock cans . the top 3 are for the Opel truck -  wip on the 2 grey cans and the yellow can is the finished item
