The British Army 6th Airborne Division was formed in mid 1943 and made up of three brigades. The 6th ADs first mission took place on June 6, 1944 as part of the D-Day Normandy Invasion. The task was called Operation Tonga with an objective to secure the left flank of Operation Overlord. In September 1944 they returned to the UK but in December 1944 they were recalled to Belgium to help counter the Battle of the Bulge. The British 6th Airborne Division Willys Jeep was referred to as the "Blitz Buggy".

Willys Jeep

Designed to meet a US Department of War requirement for a light, cross-country reconnaissance vehicle, the Willys MB Army Jeep was manufactured between 1941 and 1945. The Willys Jeep was the original version of what would later become one of the most iconic vehicles in American history, evolving into a popular civilian vehicle that is still being produced today. The Willys Jeep was a compact, four-wheel drive vehicle that rapidly became one of the most prolific vehicles of WWII. More than 640,000 standardized versions were produced, with 8,690 other versions built over a period of four years.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale Jeep has lots of scale detail in a small package. The body is constructed in diecast metal and the chassis, drive train and suspension are constructed in plastic, which allows for maximum detail. The interior features a pad-printed instrument panel, separately painted seat cushions, a steering wheel and three transmission gear-shifts. There is a folding windscreen on the exterior, along with a delicate side mirror painted to look like real glass. Separately applied battlefield equipment includes shovels, hatchets, jerry cans and a spare tire. Underneath the model the drive train and leaf-spring suspension are clearly visible.
