This model is a factory fresh example of a radio/recon configured Jeep of I think either Korean War vintage or another WWll variant as they were produced by Willys, Ford, Bantam and any other company licensed.. Cute little features beside 50 cal machine gun is am M-1 carbine mounted on the dash under a flip up cover. The steering box is open to show the gear drive. The passenger seat flip up to reveal a hydraulic jack and the underside of the hood has a grease gun and 'envelope for the maintenance sheet.

@mikedetorrice One curious feature on the AUTOart: the chassis actually has a Vietnam era camouflage pattern while the rest of the finish is solid Olive Drab. Gotta be a story there.

Let's not forget that accessory trailer (with all its "junk")  Autoart did a masterful job replicating ALL of it. It's a beautifully executed 1/18 Army Jeep!

Perhaps AutoArt had direct access to a Jeep that had that particular camo pattern and went with what they could confirm first-hand. Or perhaps real Jeeps from the later era had variations that may not have been officially spec'ed.

@chris I remember the trailer and all the accessories. It wasn't cheap and I also couldn't justify the display space it would eat up and it would probably have wound up in storage (and I've long since ran out of storage space... LOL)
