First Look

WWII US Truck Crew Set

Here is a nice kit to have in your stash if you missed it previously. This is Bronco Models' WWII US Jeep crew (without having to invoke the licensing problems of using the 'Jeep' name). The figures are posed specifically for the MB Jeep and will work with any of your favorite Jeep kits.

The set includes four figures, driver, relaxed front passenger, and two soldiers in the rear. The set comes with a variety of weapons to accompany the crew figures. What I especially appreciate is the set of decals which provide shoulder patches for 11 different divisions plus three sets of rank chevrons. This is a nice feature as most figure sets leave you to your own resources to find appropriate uniform markings for their figures.

This is a nice addition to your next Jeep project which also provides you with the start of a nice vignette or diorama.

My sincere thanks to DML for this review sample!
