Jeep (Willys MD) Truck, 1/4 t, M38 A1
ROCO 1:87 Scale Vehicle Review
This conversion of the ROCO Jeep has had the round front fenders cut back and the raised central portion of the hood scraped off with a scalpel, to resemble the Bantam Jeep which was used as a basis for the 37 mm Gun Motor Carriage in 1941. The original Bantam G.M.C. had a swivel-mounted anti-tank gun behind the driver seat. The later experimental version shown here has the anti-tank gun facing the rear of the vehicle, with the passenger seat installed facing backwards as well. Stowage has just been added to the vehicle, it still needs to be painted in subdued colours and weathered a little, to blend in with the rest of the vehicle.
Willys Jeep, M38 A1, with .50 cal. MG
The ROCO model of the Willys Jeep is a nice vehicle which lends itself to a number of interesting conversion. The model is cheap and it can be stripped of valuable spare parts in the event that a particular conversion project should fail disastrously. Stripped chassis make convincing hulks which can be used to decorate the battlefield.
