When the Willys MB was first put into service during the 1940s it wasn’t the only light off-road vehicle on the battlefield. It wasn’t the most ground-breaking design and didn’t feature state-of-the-art technology. However it would start a revolution - designed to tackle the most extreme type of terrain, it became a reliable and versatile workhorse honored by soldiers around the World for years to come.
To recreate and capture that original love for the Willys MB, FMS has gone through a repeated testing and upgrading process to present you with this one-of-its-kind model: the 1:12.
No less than its larger sibling - 1:6 1941 MB Scaler we created one year ago - it features a realistic moulded hard body finished with a delicate pad printing technique including real rear-view mirrors, a detailed dashboard, rubber tires and removable accessories such as a fuel tank, axe, shovel, hood, windshield and a top bow assembly.
However, the 1:12 1941 Willys MB features even more.
Such as lifelike canvas seats, a fold-down rear seat with openable bins and tires with stunning scale thread patterns.
The Willys MB chassis features a solid ladder frame rail that mirrors its full-size counterpart, multi-leaf springs with dampers as well as offset differentials, making this vehicle exquisitely equal to the legendary historical Willys.
The Willys MB features a fantastic LED system (four turn lights, two headlights and a blackout lamp) that helps explore the dark of night. Besides the scale finishing and detail, its 2.4GHz ANT transmitter provides modelers from rookies to experts with the opportunity to enjoy exciting trails with a Two-speed transmission option (Crawling Mode and Beginner Mode), as well as alerting the user with a Low-Battery Warning, Forgotten Alarm, Motor Overload Protection, and more!
Sometimes, Smaller really is Better. The Legend lives on – 1941 MB Willys MB!
