WILLYS M606 & MITSUBISHI CJ-3B-J4
The M606 and its Japanese sister the CJ3B-J4 were used in not a small number in Vietnam during the second Indochina
Conflict. The Army of the Republic of VietNam (ARVN) was the largest user of the CJ3B-J4, but many were put into service
as support vehicles by the U.S. There is a wonderfully informative CJ3B site by Derek Redmond here
The difference between the two is rather minor for gaming purposes - the J4s have a Mitsubishi diamond mark stamped in
the metal above the grill and the military versions have H shaped lamp guards.
Once I find a decent resin kit of a Willys MB (WW2 Jeep), I plan to kitbash a few M606s and CJ3Bs for my VietGaming
needs. Theoretically it doesn't look to hard, fill in the outer two grill slats, raise the good a bit, add bug-eye lamps
and thin out the windshield mount.
