It's very basic, I built one a few years ago and it looks like a jeep. However the new(ish) Tamiya model is streets ahead of it....Jim

Mark, Good to hear from you again. Old Monogram kits from the Shep Paine diorama insert days. I bought this set for the M34 and gave the Jeep to my daughter. Doesn't come close to even the Heller Jeep or old Tamiya Jeep. M34 is very basic and I gave up hacking on it for a while.

Model Expo used to sell them cheap, so they were well worth the money there.

Very basic kit but it is what I have used to covert to the M-54 five ton. I use the cab highly modified and the chassis as a bas for the trailers. They make nice M-34 engineers truck also.
