Topic starter  

Some years ago US Model Mint produced a nice ‘49 Willys pickup truck offered in two colors, Brown Poly and Universal Beige, both of which I have in my fleet. In addition I have one done in a period correct dark green by John Roberts.

And the Tintin version in commercial livery and with interior figures.  I suppose it could be improved if I painted the tires black which I have done on other Tintin items.

  I really like this Jeep coverage, and I thank David for starting it.  So I'm coming along with John and adding to this "Jeeporama."


First, that great BRK 161a in yellow:  Doesn't every Jeep driver have a blonde alongside?

 And a mystery "Jeep Surrey" with only that name and "1/43" on the bottom.  I'm sure the packaging is back in the storage room somewhere.

(later) Found the Jeep Surrey for sale, identified this way: Greenlight 1/43 Scale 86472 - Elvis 1960 Jeep Surrey CJ3B
