MT-1029/MT-1898 Semi-Gloss OD

Unread post by m38inmaine » May 18th, 2024, 12:26 pm

I am looking for the mounts in the older semi-gloss OD color, they don't have to be NOS but I am going to be a little picky as I don't want to have to do a complete re-paint on these, touch up work OK.

Thanks

I have a half a dozen of those mounts. I guess it depends on how picky you are going to be. I sold the two NOS ones last year.

already wanted to ask you what kind of radio you will install. At least the antenna mast base is different then usual?

I found a set so I am good on the mounts, thank you to all who replied. I am going to install an RT-246 and a R-442 receiver, radio's I have and that are working. I still need to find a canvas R-442 cover. I am also installing a PRC-47 HF radio on the driver side, I have a complete Marine Corps mount for a M151, not something you see very often.
The antenna base is the early Vietnam era matching base, works the same with automatic matching, uses the same cables, but it does use a unique antenna base section, the top section is the same.
