Description Extended Information
 
Dragon DRA60507 US Willys Jeep with .30 cal Heavy Machine Gun Twin Pack (1:72 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.

Dragon Armors 1/72 scale range has scored a couple of hits with model collectors via the release of its superb miniature 1/4-Ton Trucks. Some 640,000 of these little utility vehicles served the Allies from 1941-45 in all theaters of war. Powered by a 60hp 4-cylinder engine, the 1/4-Ton Truck was a mere 3.33m long, yet it remained remarkably agile over rough terrain such as beaches, deserts, hills and mud. Dragon Armors first offering (Item No.60505) of perhaps the most iconic military vehicle of all time, the Willys MB, sold out quickly. The second 1/72 scale release (Item No. 60506) was the Truck, 1/4-Ton, 4x4 mounting a .50-cal machine gun on a rear pedestal mount, and it too was hugely popular.

Now Dragon Armor has launched yet another version of the 1/4-Ton 4x4 Truck, this time featuring a .30-cal machine gun on the rear pedestal mount. As before, the set features two complete model vehicles inside. The pedestal mount is finely detailed, and the weapons come ready to fire with their associated .30-cal ammo boxes. It isnt easy making such a diminutive vehicle in this scale, but these Dragon Armor vehicles are rich in detail. Utilizing Dragons newest technological innovations, the vehicles are reproduced with a sophisticated degree of detail. Each vehicle bears different US Army unit markings, and even the tiny tire pressure markings are in place. Fully built-up, pre-painted and authentically weathered, these two 4x4 vehicles bristle with detail. Collectors now have even more choice as they can elect to install a .30-cal machine gun on their vehicles! Sold Out!
