Recreate the Jeep Willys MB 1/4 Ton Truck with a 1/35 scale model kit made by Tamiya.
Without a doubt the Jeep Willys MB occupies a significant position in the whole automotive history. The origin of the Jeep vehicle dates back to early 1941, when U.S. Forces ordered the Willys, Ford, and Bantam companies to develop prototypes of a small sized multi-purpose 4-wheel drive vehicle.
During the early stage of WWII, Germany had achieved outstanding successes by using motorized troops with their "Blitzkrieg" tactics. It became a pressing need for allied nations to possess tough and reliable vehicles with excellent cross-country ability. In November 1941, the Army, with alterations on the front grille and hood to the Ford design, chose the Willy's vehicle as the basis for the mass production model.
- Plentiful accessory parts.
- Lifelike figure included.
A brilliant service from the Tank Museum shop. I only wish I could buy more!
