US Army Command Vehicle ?

there was some other vehicle besides the jeep used by officers. I saw
one picture, can't remember where, but from the front it appeared to
have oversized knobby tires. Not much to go on, but I figured you guys
would know.
I like the look of the oversize tires - hoping there is a kit.
thx -Craig

Try looking for a Dodge WC30 (I think). I know somebody had one out during the '80s but AFVs aren't my field.

I have the Dodge 3/4 ton Command Car in 1/35. It was made by Peerless back in the late 70s, early 80s, I think. I don't know if there is a repop, but other Peerless models have been issued by other mfgs. I have scanned the box and posted it over on alt.binaries.models.scale. Peerless Dodge Command Car Sorry, the box has seen better days.

By the way, it was called a 'Beep'. eBay has a few.

There is a much superior kit of the same vehicle, originally made by a company called Skybow, AFV Club now has the molds and releases it under their name. Either boxing can be found on eBay or various online shops. Light years ahead of the old Peerless Max/Testors/Italeri kit.

The newer Skybow (now back under the AFV Club aegis) kit is of the WC-56/57 vehicle and is much better than the old Peerless one. With some resin wheels and etched brass the older kit can be made up into a nice model, but ditch the kit decals!

Actually the WC-51/52 standard model 3/4 ton truck was the "Beep" (as in Big jEEP).
