  3. “Good Lord, I don’t think we could continue the war without the jeep, it does everything. It goes everywhere. It’s as faithful as a dog, strong as a mule, and as agile as a goat. It constantly carries twice what it was designed for, and keeps on going. It doesn’t even ride so badly after you get used to it.” Ernie Pyle As some light relief from my Rolls Royce armoured car, and to make use of my holiday days without spending them entirely in scratch building the bits Meng messed up, I turned to one of my favourite kits of all time. Unbelievably the Tamiya “new” jeep is 23 years old
  4. MB Military Vehicle (VS-011) 1:35 Meng via Creative Models Ltd The Willy’s Jeep is a WWII legend that shows no sign of diminishing, beginning in the 30s with a need for a four-wheeled drive light vehicle to transport small numbers of troops and officers in a rugged chassis that became more urgent when hostilities began. The Bantam was a competitor, and some of the design cues leaked from one competitor to another, but the ultimate winner was from Willys-Overland and was manufactured in huge quantities by various factories in the US and elsewhere. As well as bein
  5. Bantam 40 BRC w/ British Crew (35324) 1:35 MiniArt via Creative Models Ltd. WWII saw the increased mechanisation of war that had begun in WWI, including lighter vehicles that could transport a small number of soldiers, staff, weapons or equipment quickly across the battle-space with rugged design and good rough-field performance as well as being fast and manoeuvrable. A specification was issued by the US War Department, with three companies vying for the contract, one of which was Bantam, who despite being in poor financial shape, designed a simple vehicle that u
  6. Sometimes a picture seeds an idea. I found this photo when I built my Marine Corsair, and it inspired me to try and model this gun carrier as a companion. Tamiya's 1/48 Jeep was the perfect kit for this task. I used the Eduard PE set and Verlinden wheels, and scratch-built a new radiator grille to represent the early front and a wooden box to hold the .5 cal Browning M2 machine guns. The box can be removed to have the Jeep perform other duties if needed. The picture below demonstrates the difference between the early radiator grille guard (vehi
  7. Hi all! Here's my latest 'lockdown' quickbuilds - started the 9th of May. It's the good old Tamiya kit OOB with only straps and a tarpaulin added. First up is the 'beauty' shot: As with all my 'lockdown' builds - don't look too closely - keep your distance! Cheers Hans J

MP Originals Masters Models has just released a 1/48th Jeep NC-1A APU resin kit - Willys jeep NC-1A APU-Tug was a mobile start unit that was used on the decks of US Navy carriers in the 1950s and 1960s.

  9. US Army 1/4 Ton Utility Truck + trailer & MP Figure 1:35 Takom via Pocketbond First of all we all know this is a Willys Jeep, also we know Takom knows it is. However due to licencing laws no one can actually call it that on paper so we are stuck with 1/4 Ton utility vehicle! Suffice to say the Jeep was developed with input from Bantam, Willys and Ford. All three companies competed for the contract from the US Army for a utility vehicle with Willys winning. The 60hp engine in their entry helping it to win. However design features from Bantam & Ford were i
  10. "The Jeep, the Dakota and the Landing Craft were the three tools that won the war." -General Dwight D. Eisenhower Since armour STGBs seem to be doing well lately, and a more general AFV Group Build is gathering steam, why not take the next logical step and try an STGB for an unarmoured military utility vehicle? And what better candidate than the most widely-produced motorized vehicle of World War II, one probably used by every Allied army (and most of the navies and air forces)? The Jeep served as a reconnaissance vehicle, command car, airfield "follow me" vehicle,
  11. Hello! I am an aircraft modeller but every now and then I build something different. I've decided to wade outside my comfort zone and post photos of my Airfix 1:72 LTV 4 Buffalo & Willys Jeep which I built OOB back in 2003. I am aware that the scale isn't really 1:72 but either 1:76 or HO. This kit was showing it's age back then and the fit of parts wasn't great. Although I assembled it with moving parts fixed, somehow the Jeep's wheels do turn and the Buffalo's door/ramp moves! Despite everything I was and still am pleased with the end result. Thanks for looking
  12. Having, courtesy of Aldi, four of the new mould Airfix jeeps in the process of construction, can anyone point me in the direction of suitable crew? Ideally these would by USAF aircrew but GI's are acceptable. Two criteria are I) that seated figures don't need legs amputating and ii) as they are to appear in a diorama that places then off duty no armaments are required., I have used search engines to answer the question but to no avail - I get too many answers. Any help would be appreciated.
  13. I started these two models as something to do while my larger builds were sitting with wet paint or glue. They are both Academy kits in 1/72 and go together nicely. I build them straight from the box.
  14. If you check your modellers dictionary under the heading of 'Shelf Queen' you may well find a photo of this wee thing - Tamiya's 1997 Jeep... apart from the stowage, .30 cal belt and the M1 carbine, straight from the box. First figure I've painted in about 25 years and thoroughly enjoyed it. Started just before Christmas 2011 and finished this afternoon ! As ever please feel free to comment, abuse or ask a question. Have a great weekend y'all... :so
  15. In the real world of military vehicle collectors, the "Holy Grail" would be to find an original Jeep in its shipping crate. Of course, other than those at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in the holds of sunken ships, it's very unlikely anyone will ever find one. The whole "Jeep in a crate for $50" idea came from a post war scam, trying to con people out of their money. However, there are a number of photos around the net showing Jeeps in crates, although how they were packed and how disassembled they were seems to vary from picture to picture. This model was built for a friend, with the hood
  16. I started this on March 28th and finished today with about 2 hours per day. The kit is a level 4 as per the box I purchased, but a level 2 on others. Both kits are the "Ranger" version, the same kit number and are identical in piece and piece count. This sort of thing is certainly not unheard of and is a good hint as to why you should research it. See the link above for more information on this kit. There was almost no injection feathering at all. The parts were strong and of good quality with striking detail.The directions were easy and clear as always with Revell. (to my knowledge)
  17. Bantam 40 BRC (35212) 1:35 MiniArt The Bantam BRC 40 was the production version of a 4 wheel drive "Jeep" designed by the American Bantam Car Company. Even though Willys name is more associated with the Jeep it is Bantam produced the first vehicles. Bantam did not have a large manufacturing base so this was contracted to Willy and later Ford as the Army contracts required 75 Jeeps a day to be produced. The eventual Willy product was an amalgamation of their own, Bantam's, and Ford's designs. Bantam produced more than 2700 vehicles with over half their production
  18. There doesn't appear to be a "Softskin" section of the forum for work in progress, so this Jeep story will have to go under the Armour section ( hope this is the right place! ). This story began around the end of 2004, when because of health problems, I decided to take a break from balsa dust and R/C model flying and find a new hobby. Growing up on a diet of war films and M*A*S*H, the iconic Jeep had always appealed to me. Affording a Jeep was one thing, fitting it in the garage was another matter altogether! The garage isn't quite a double, being 11ft 8in wide, with one half occup

  20. Hi Folk,s and nearly a happy new year,laying down a marker for some armour related stuff I want to do in the coming month's as a change frommainly wingy thing's I thought I would start with a couple of small subject's that I had not done before so Tamiya's old but still nice Jeep (SAS seems to be well represented on BM not so much the standard Jeep) and the good old universal carrier which I'm delighted to find has the TT marking's of the 50th Northumbrian Division on the sheet,all have figures so a small dio base will be in order.I hope later to cover A Dragon Wagon wi
  21. Hi folk's,I started watching Rogue Heroes on BBC 2 last week and couldn't resist Tamiya's old but still good Jeep.The SAS "requisitioned" some shortly after they arrived in Egypt (up till then they had relied on the LRDG for their transport) and modified them for their long missions behind enemy lines,cheers for looking.
  22. Hi All, I have this in my stash (well, small pile of kits) and was going to build this before I started my Chinook (now complete). I've decided now would be a good time before I commence any GB's next year. I've seen a few fantastic builds in the RFI's (no pressure!!) but not in WIP (though could be wrong) I'm trying Flickr for the first time (instead of PhotoBucket) and it's a bit of a phaff to post pictures!! Any tips on making things easier?
  23. Hi Guys I had a fews days and felt like doing something simple before my next build, so I settled for the Tamiya SAS Jeep. I am getting to like Tamiya more now as the kits seem to be of quite good quality. It was a nice easy build and gave me an excuse to practice my weathering technique (being a newbie). Below is the finished item which I hope may just compare to the other Jeep builds on here. I will be back in with my next builds in the new year as I have a few kits coming from Santa (Revell Pirate ship, King Tiger with interior and more)
  24. Hi guys and girls, I plan on making something involving these two boxs And this guy from alpine miniatures; Not sure what I'm going to do maybe the Jeep's diving through' and soldiers watching or Jeep stopped with the guy talking to the driver while others sitting around... I'll wait and see! May get a few more alpine figures. Also got some miniart tiles for the floor so abit of chopping will be in order! Thanks for looking! Joss
  25. Hi all, Its all action stations at my desk at the moment, got the group build going on at the moment so i'm trying to clear the 5 odd projects I've got going on. This being the smallest of the lot (microscopic next to Meng's Tortoise!) I decided to finish it first by clearing up my weathering and throwing a matte varnish on it. I painted the jeep originally I think in the Tamiya Olive drab only to detail paint it with Humbrol enamel. I took to weathering in a subtle fashion to have it looking relatively clean in preparation for the D-day invasion of which it is marked, to do this I u
