Jeep Willys MB by Kyosho

Jeep Willys MB 1943.
USA Sports Car • Minicar Collection 2 by Kyosho, 2010.

This blue is not at all unlike that of the Military Police,
but this Jeep is free of any specific marking,
except registration and stars of the Army.
Error or omission?

This little Jeep is a very fine model,
like always among Kyosho.

Exploded view drawing from the Jeep Willys MB.
