Right after Dragon announced ther were realeasing a kit featuring not one, but two “1/4 ton 4×4 armoured trucks” my heart jumped sky high. Hopefully this images will serve as inspiration for other lovers of this small, yet nimble and emblematic American vehicle.
The armoured Jeep was very high on my want list after finding some images of some such modified vehicles during the Battle of the Bulge, and one in particular got my attention. It featured a twin Bazooka setup on a pintle mount. I was hoping to build one using the Heller/Airfix kit as base but thanks to Dragon we will also get the macho Bazooka from the box.
I hope these images inspire you as much as they inspired me to get this new release.
Last but not least, not armoured… but still quite interesting don’t you think? 😉
