Willys MB Jeep Reissue

Thursday, October 25, 2018

The TimMee 1/16 scale Willys MB Jeep Reissue is ready for shipment after a long delay as new tooling for a replacement wheel was required.
Modeled after the Willys MB U.S. Army Jeep deployed in 1941, the 1/16 scale #739 was introduced in 1965. Over the years they were sold individually or as part of several command playsets. Features included a 50mm machine gun on a rotating turret mounted in the rear (later used on the C-130 gunships) and a fold-down windshield. Rear accessories would change over the course of its production run and would either include a jerrycan coupled with either a spare tire or radio. The latter would also include hitch/slotted plate to accommodate different attachments. The wheel design was slightly altered with the addition of a center cap. The 739 was produced until the company ceased operation in 2005. Colors included desert tan, army green, aqua blue (Air Force), aqua green, red and ruby red.
