Description Extended Information
 
Hobby Master HG1603 RAF Willys 1/4 Ton Jeep - World War II (1:48 Scale) "In war there is no second prize for the runner-up."
- General Omar Bradley

Developed by the Quartermaster Corps, the jeep and other motor transport vehicles were transferred to the Ordnance Department in August 1942. Despite its lightweight, the jeep could perform a variety of functions, including towing a 37mm antitank gun over a 7% grade. Unencumbered, the jeep could climb a 60% grade, and was capable of attaining speeds in excess of 60-mph on a level highway. It could ford a stream 18-inches deep, even when fully equipped and loaded. It had a cruising range of approximately 300 miles on 15 gallons of gasoline. Operated by a crew of two, the jeep had a space in the rear for equipment or additional personnel.

Pictured here is a 1:48 scale replica of a RAF Willys Jeep that saw service in WWII. Sold Out!
