The AFV Club M38A1

I looked up the M38 Jeep story and found this:

So, is the AFV Club suited for the USMC or not? The vehicle has a bunch of fittings so I cannot be sure.

Yes, AFV Club’s kit can be built as either a US Army or USMC jeep. I did it as an Army jeep. The AFV Club kit is very nice and very detailed. I did use a Verlinden PE set on it as well.

The idea was that the Marines version has features the Army version would not have. But the instructions do not mention this.

They were the same using the same tie-down points and lift rings, etc. USMC-specific tie-down and such weren’t seen until the M151 series of 1/4 ton trucks, built by Ford, not Willys.

if you want a unique M38, the Navy used them in 68. Painted battleship grey! The medical teams used them when visiting villages
