We are thrilled to announce the NEW MOULD 1:35th scale A1380 WWII British Army 30-cwt 4x2 G.S. Truck is now available!
As Britain prepared for war in the late 1930s, the military weren't just desperately in need of vast numbers of aircraft, tanks, and guns, they also needed many thousands of trucks and general utility vehicles to support all kinds of operations.
The ability to effectively supply modern, mechanised armies with huge amounts of fuel, ammunition, food, and other commodities, they would need was crucial to the success of any military campaign and as the speed of war increased, so these supply lines began to
lengthen. Rugged, reliable, and adaptable, these trucks would have a vital role to play in the coming conflict.
Ranked at skill level 3, the 1:35th scale A1380 WWII British Army 30-cwt 4x2 G.S. Truck includes two decal schemes (as detailed below), photo-etched parts, superb interior detail, and the option to pose the doors open or closed.
