Jeep Willys Build-Up
Your Historic Jeep Willys
This wonderfully detailed, 1:8 scale replica is of a Jeep Willys that played a vital role in shaping the destiny of World War II. As part of the 1st Infantry Division, this Jeep was among the first wave of troops to land at Omaha Beach on D-Day. It means that you will be building a genuine piece of military history!
On June 6th, 1944, this Jeep Willys – along with thousands of men, vehicles and armaments from the 1st Infantry Division – landed on Omaha Beach in Normandy. This Jeep Willys was part of the 1st Infantry’s continuous offensive across France that saw it reach the German border before taking part in the Battle of Bulge, helping set up the Bridgehead at Remagen, and also seeing action in the Rhine and Ruhr regions.
More than just a battlefield 4x4, this particular Jeep Willys has been involved in some of the US Army’s most significant campaigns in the European theater of World War II.
