Perhaps the most iconic military vehicle of all time is the Jeep,
officially known in US military parlance as “Truck, 1/4-Ton, 4x4”. With
production of 640,000 of these little utility vehicles from 1941-45, it
served within the army ranks of Allied countries such as the USA,
Britain, France and even the Soviet Union. Powered by a 60hp 4-cylinder
engine, the 1/4-Ton Truck was a mere 3.33m long, yet it was remarkably
agile over rough terrain. Now, for the first time, Dragon has produced a
remarkable 1/72 scale rendition of this famous 4x4 vehicle, and it has
just been added to the Dragon Armor collection.
Modelers will understand that it’s not easy to make such a
diminutive vehicle in such a small scale, but this Dragon Armor vehicle
is rich in detail and is an accurate rendition of the original vehicle.
Utilizing Dragon’s newest technological innovations, the vehicle is
reproduced with a sophisticated degree of detail. To boost the appeal of
the 1/4-Ton 4x4 Truck even further, the Dragon Armor set features two
complete 1/72 scale models of this utility vehicle. Naturally, they
feature different detailed markings representing different US Army
combat units. These fully built-up and pre-painted miniatures relieve
collectors of the task of having to paint such a small-scale model.
These 4x4 vehicles may be tiny but they’re bristling with detail. This
twin set is a real boon to collectors, proving that good things do
indeed come in small packages!
