Chevrolet WB 30cwt Truck – TS1 Plastic 181008
The LRDG vehicles were mainly two-wheel drive, chosen because they were lighter and used less fuel than four-wheel drive. They were stripped of all non-essentials, including doors, windscreens and roofs. They were fitted with a bigger radiator, a condenser system, built up leaf springs for the harsh terrain, wide, low-pressure desert tyres, sand mats and channels, plus map containers and a sun compass. Wireless trucks had special compartments built into the bodywork to house wireless equipment. Initially, the LRDG patrols were equipped with one Canadian Military Pattern (CMP) Ford 15cwt F15 truck for the commander, while the rest of the patrol used up to 10 Chevrolet 30cwt wide-body (WB) trucks. The 30cwt truck is a 2-sprue kit with a multi-slide mould cab body, comes with 5 plastic LRDG crew, stowage, and weapon options.
