    .... but a Tamiya Willy's Jeep in 1/35 scale. No less an authority than General of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower stated that the Jeep was one of the most important pieces of Allied equipment that helped to win WW II. Hope you like it. Comments welcome. 045.JPG

    I built this Jeep for my father as part of a diarama I'm putting together entitled "Panzer Column!", centered on action in the town of Krefeld, Germany in late March-- early April, 1945, when my dad won a bronze starfor spotting and reporting a Panzer column that had tried to enter the freshly liberated town.

    He was with the 84th Infantry Division (Railsplitters) in Intelligence.

    I like the jeep. Those and the later models were fun to drive before they went to the Humvee. :)

    Very nicely done ! Just one thing though - considering the dried mud on the tyres, the rest of the vehicle, particularly under the wheel arches, and in the foot wells, looks a bit clean. Great job overall though, and I hope you post some pics of the diorama.

    The mud on the wheels looks like the real stuff, is it the Mig 'dry mud'? I've recently got hold of a pot of this although not used it much yet it does look good.
