RAM Walkarounds Willys Jeep MB & Hotchkiss M201

Without a doubt the Willys Jeep was a true workhorse for the allied armies of World War II seeing service in most theatres of the conflict. The origin of the Jeep vehicle dates back to the early 1940s, when U.S. Forces ordered the Willys-Overland and Bantam companies to design and produce prototypes of a small sized multi-purpose 4-wheel drive vehicle. By July 1941 the War Department had opted to standardise the design and chose Willys-Overland to be the sole supplier. However, Willys-Overland could not keep up with production demand and Ford was contracted to also produce the vehicle. The Ford vehicle was designated GPW, with the "W" referring to the "Willys" licensed design. License production was also undertaken in France, the Hotchkiss M201. It was the standard light transport vehicle of the French Army from shortly after WW2 until the 1980s; remaining little changed from its initial counterpart. RAM Models has photographed in full detail both a Ford built GPW and a Hotchkiss M201. 150 high quality images cover all areas of this vehicle type which will allow the modeller to make their next scale project as accurate as possible.
