Tamiya "Follow me " Willys Jeep 1/48

August 13, 2016 · in Automotive · · 15 · 2.4K

The kit is very easy to assemble and quite well detailed , it makes a nice addition to any WW2 U.S. aircraft. I have seen lots of pictures of these follow me jeeps adorned with home made timber structures and saucy artwork to keep the attention of the crew they were guiding and of course just because boys will be boys ! I'm not sure if the radio operator came with the kit or with my B29,altogether a highly recommended little kit.

  4. Nice little build Neil.
    Didn`t you build her for the B 29?

    Like the "follow me" sign..

  5. "Nice Rack", you know, the one built on the back of the jeep to hold up the sign. Who ever thought a bunch of airman , far from home would follow a nice cleavage around in an airplane, hmmmm!
    Nice work on this Neil, and a nice piece of history.

    • Thanks Terry, it isn't copied from an actual vehicle just a figment of my imagination,the rack is made from bits of icelolly stick and the chick is cut out from a business card.N
