Jeeps

I've got new "15 mm" wargame Jeeps, made by FlamesOfWar (http://www.flamesofwar.com)
Although they are approx. 1:100 scale, I think they can work for TT:

Eugene Tackleberry came to enter the Police Academy?

Hi Arseny,

Since the WWII Jeeps were considerably smaller than today's Jeeps, you can probably get away with it, especially if they are painted in non-military colors, and most folks wouldn't notice. It still looks a bit large to me, but I think that's because I used to own a 1988 Jeep, which is bigger than the MB WWII Jeeps. However the newer Jeeps since the time of Chrysler/Daimler are even bigger than the '88 (they are trying to be Hummers). If the company (Fiat/Chrysler) would get smart, they would downsize the Jeep to a size no bigger than the WWII version, maybe even just a bit smaller, and bring back the 4 cylinder engine which was discontinued a few years ago. I'd buy one.

It seems to me modern Jeep Patriot is compact enough... But I am not sure it have a great off-road capabilities.

As concerns WWII Willys MB Jeeps: which civilian colors were in use in USA in 1950s for WWII Jeeps?
I still have some unpainted kits...

But unfortunately this kit do not have separate steering wheel; it is made as one solid piece of metal with the driver; and driver is a soldier.
So it must be military car (maybe car of the National Guard?). Or maybe it is a civilian car, but the owner like military-style... :wink:
