1:48 Scale. Length: 2.75"
The M151 ‘MUTT’ (Military Utility Tactical Truck) was a 1/4-ton 4x4 utility truck developed by the Ford Motor Company in the 1950s as a replacement for the U.S Army’s M38 Jeep. Although the M151 retained the basic layout and dimensions of the M38, it was for all intents and purposes a completely new vehicle. The M151 utilized a semi-monocoque design, making it slightly roomier than its predecessor, and incorporated an independent suspension with coil springs. It was built from 1959 to 1982 and served with all branches of the United States military in the Vietnam War and into the 1990s with some units. The M151 has since been replaced in U.S. military service with the AM General HMMWV (Humvee) in most utility roles. Various models of the M151 were also sold to, and are still being used by, many other countries.Die-cast metal body

Camp Fuji is a USMC CATC (Combined Arms Training Center) situated 2.5 miles from the base of its namesake Mount Fuji in Japan. Camp Fuji is only one of several installations that form the Camp Butler complex located next to the JGSDF Camp Takigahara. Camp Butler was originally used by the U.S. Army as a training area and later as a staging base during the Korean War. In 1953 the Camp was turned over to the U.S. Marine Corps. Camp Butler and Camp Takigahara was the same area used 800 years earlier to train Samurai warriors.
