The U.S. 2 1/2 ton 6x6 cargo truck was one of the most common vehicles seen in all theaters of war during WWII, with over 800,000 units being produced during the five years of the war. Its simple design and unbelievable toughness helped make it one of the most valuable vehicles the Allies had, helping in no small part achieve Allied victory with its all-important role in supply and logistics.
Tamiya has another 1/48 winner here with the release of its 6x6 cargo truck. Sharply molded injection plastic parts and a die-cast chassis come together to make a sturdy yet finely detailed model. Drive train, cab, and cargo bed assemblies attach to the die-cast chassis with screws. Tires are injection-molded plastic. Its canvas cab top can be removed, and tailgate can be posed opened or closed. Includes one driver figure and decals for two versions.
