BBA050 -- US Armored Jeep (Winter Version)

  • BBA045 — G.I. Chef — Sitting by cooker this GI prepare a hot meal for the rest of his platoon. He’s taking no chances though… he still carries his MI over his shoulder. Is that because of the Germans… or is he worried his buddies won’t like his cooking!!!
  • BBA046 — Winter March — Two well-wrapped-up GI’s make their way forward to the front line…
  • BBA047 — Kneeling Firing Rifle — Another great ‘action’ figure
  • BBA048 — Lying Ready
  • BBA049 — Truck Passengers Set #2 — The second installment of seated GI’s… two riflemen plus a BAR man.
  • BBA050 — US Armored Jeep (Winter Version) — The ubiquitous jeep, but probably one you’re never seen before! Armour plate protects the front of the engine as well as three sides of the driver/ passenger area. A 30 cal. machine gun is mounted on a pole next to the driver.
    The vehicle has also been “snow” camouflaged with a rough coat of whitewash. Note the “snow chains” on the wheels… a nice little extra touch.
  • BBA051 — Supplies Trailer (winter) — This separate little trailer is the perfect “add-on” to the jeep… The supplies in the back of the trailer can also be removed if required.
  • BBA052 — Vehicle Scout — This GI has dismounted from the Jeep with his binos and a field radio to get a better look at the enemy position and report back to headquarters.
  • BBA053 — Walking Officer — Carbine over one shoulder this offer is a great little “companion” piece to BBA046’s foot sloggers.
