About Italeri Commando Car

From the Manufacturer This is a 1/35 scale Italeri plastic model kit. Much work was carried out in the USA and Britain to design a special airborne vehicle to drop behind enemy lines in WWII. The small four-wheel drive utility vehicles are considered the iconic World War II Jeep and would inspire many similar Light Utility Vehicles. There are many origins of the term "jeep". The term "jeep" was used by soldiers for any untried or untested piece of personnel or equipment.... but it's been said that soldiers informally named the vehicle after Eugene the Jeep, a character in the Popeye cartoons. In february of 1941, Willys-Overland staged a press event in Washington, D.C., demonstrating the vehicles prowess by driving up the Capitol steps. An article in the newspaper appeared with a photo showing a jeep going up the Capitol steps and a caption including the term "jeep". This is believed to be the most likely cause of the term being fixed in the minds and why it's still called a "jeep". It's actually designated as "a general purpose, personnel, or cargo carrier especially adaptable for reconnaissance or command and designated as 1/4-ton 4x4 Truck." Italeri's 1/35 scale Commando car was generally manned by a sergeant and a trooper. It was armed with at least 5 machine guns and additional fuel tanks. Officially a 1/4 ton truck, it had a 2200cc, 54HP engine and a top speed of almost 65mph. Italeri's Commando car has all the detail of the real thing: five mounted machine guns, drum magazines, detailed engine bay, twin fuel tanks, tools, ammo cans, dispatch briefcases, first aid kit,and a driver figure is included. Painting instructions will allow for a perfect finish.
