I’m a big Jeep fan. There, I said it. In fact, I think I’m on my fifth Jeep Cherokee, having gotten one in every conceivable package and color except for olive drab. So, when I heard that Welly’s 1:18 scale World War II era Jeep was sold out late last year, I grew a little despondent. A Jeep support group was a phone call away when we learned yesterday that Welly brought back their venerable off-roader for an encore appearance, this time sporting a faux canvas top.
Boasting an opening hood, detailed engine compartment and other goodies, their new Jeep is back in stock and carrying the same sticker price, thereby making it a perfect gift for any occasion.
Alliteration aside, we’re happy to report that Welly will soon release a 1:18 scale rendition of a WWII-era Willys jeep (#WE18036). Accurately modeled and finely detailed, we think this sharp looking replica will make a fantastic gift this holiday season, both affordable and sweet to behold. Compare this with the overpriced AutoArt rendition, and we feel this portrayal is an absolute bargain, even if it doesn’t come outfitted with cloth seats. We expect to take delivery later this month so make sure to check out this latest listing at your earliest opportunity.
