braille jeep lives!

This blog has been inactive for a while now, but fortunately the braille scale jeep scene has been quite the opposite. When I first started this site, there was only a handful of 1/72 scale jeep models available, but that number has grown significantly since then.

The plastic model kit contenders marked as 1/72:

Hasegawa - U.S. Jeep Willys M.B.
Academy -  WW.II Ground Vehicle Set
Airfix - Willys Jeep and Trailer
Heller - Willys MB (same as Airfix)
Italeri -  1/4 ton. 4x4 Truck
Dragon - Armored 4x4 Truck, SAS Raider 4 x 4 Truck
S-model - Willys MB & Trailer

The plastic model kit contenders marked as 1/76:

Fujimi -  U.S. Field Car
Matchbox (now released by Revell) - Morris C.8. MkII, L.R.D.G.
Airfix - Buffalo IV and Willys Jeep, another link

That's it for now, I'll keep adding to this list as and when I can find new info. Subsequently, the aim is to post in depth and comparative reviews of these kits!

Stay tuned.
