Miniart 1:35 - British Bantam 40 BRC w/Crew - Plastic model kit #35324

At the outbreak of WWII, the American Army starting looking for a General Purpose Vehicle. The American Bantam Company came up with a design that passed rigorous testing, but they didn’t have the required capacity for the mass production. As the Government now owned the design, they contracted out the build to Willys Overland and Ford in 1941, and they came up with a slightly altered version in the form of the familiar Willys Jeep.

The American Bantam company did end up producing 2675 Bantam BRC- 40’s, but once the US Army standardised the production of the Ford and Willys version all the Bantams were either issued to Britain or Russia under the Lend Lease scheme. The British used the some of the limited number they received in the Desert Campaign in North Africa.
