About the Model
  • Data for the modeling the U.S. Army Staff Car was taken from an actual vehicle at the Minnesota Aviation Museum.
  • From the large compilation of photos, the shape of the vehicle was accurately reproduced.
  • The chassis is made of die-cast metal which adds to the model's feeling of weight.
  • A new driver figure comes supplied with the model.
  • You are able to add this Staff Car with other 1/48 Military Miniature Series figures and vehicles such as the M4 Sherman tank and the M26 Pershing tank for diorama creation.
  • Also, by combining the Staff Car with fighter planes such as the P-51D and P-47 you can really assemble an exciting airfield diorama.

During WWII, the U.S. Military used various makes of civilian cars as military staff cars. At this time, the U.S. Military mostly used the 1942 sedan for this purpose. This 4.9m long sedan was powered by a 90hp, 6-cylinder 3700cc motor. This sedan was widely used as a Staff Car for high-ranking officers and as transport for aviators.
