Willys Jeep in 1/72 scale
Czechoslovak Armored Brigade, France, September 1944

Kit producer: Model Academy Minicraft

     The model is built in camouflage and marking according to article published in HPM 4/2000 magazine. This famous car served in all allied countries and army units so it is common that served also in our Czechoslovak Armored Brigade. This model is relatively new because I built it in march 2001. I decided to purchase the kit box including ”Jeep, Kubel and Ketten” by Accademy instead of only ”Jeep” kit by Hasegawa but I’m not sure if it was good idea. I do not know Hasegawa’s ”Jeep” but Academy’s one seems to me be not good kit. I do hope that the rest two kits will be better. My jeep was built without any bigger modification only machinegun is left out. I used paints by Agama, Humbrol and Revell to airbrush and paint this model. Used decals are included in decal set by VVV model. I tried to make also some patina on this model but the reference photos of real car are too poor to pattern well.
