Mutt Collage by enc86 Mutt Collage by enc86
The Ford M151 "Mutt" was the succor to the iconic U.S WW2 Willys jeep and was produced from 1959 through 1982. This quarter-ton 4x4 was highly usefully and enjoyed a long time in service(and for good reason!). The mutt severed thro Vietnam and had many upgrades along the way and was ultimately replaced by the humvee. The mutt was used by 15 different NATO countries and is currently used by over 100 countries worldwide. All tho it did suffer from roll over issues, it had great speed, mobility, was light weight and was very durable. Overall, a pretty incredible military vehicle.

This is a 1/35 Tamiya ford mutt and while this kit has been reissued a few times (with different upgrades) the kit I got was the basic vintage kit. I won this kit in a raffle at a local model con and it sells for around $10.us. Painted with enamel paint and weathered with art acrylics and pastels. Stowage/gear was from the bits box. Overall I like this kit alot even tho its one of my smallest builds. I would highly recommend this kit or its variants to any beginner or excerpt alike. For such a cheap price alot of fun can be had with this jeep.
Anyways I am planning up a diorama and base for this thing and will hopefully finish that up in the next few days.

I like the weathering good job! I heard the rollover issue was because it had independent rear suspension that tended collapse and it would jamm the tire between the ground and the chassis.

There's a guy around where I live who has a Mutt which I thought was strange, I heard they were outlawed.

i remember 100% but i dont think they were illegal but rare to come by. because of the roll over issue the US didn't sell many to civilians.
