Do any of you know where or by what company can I get a the old World War two dodge trucks. The kind used as dump trucks, ambulances etc. Where can I get them. The only catch is that it must be in 1/35th scale or 1/32nd scale. Thanks!!!

Sorry just realized I held down shift on the keyboard! oops. It was supposed to be WW"2" Dodges

AFV club have now taken over the Skybow line of Dodges..... 4X4 weapons carrier, 6 X 6 and 4X4 command car. These are supurb OOB builds.

Italeri does the WC54 ambulance as well as the command car.

all the above are 1/35 scale

there were NO dodge dump trucks in the WC series of Dodge WW2 trucks.

S Model in Poland also makes a Dodge Carryall in 1:35th scale. There is another Dodge subject they do too, but it escapes me at the moment. Both are in resin and conversions based on the old Italeri kits. My example of the Carryall is a decent casting, but calls for some cleanup work and correction of minor warpage.

I bought this via eBay as the S Model kit(s) are a bit hard to find. It was thusly expensive too...

I think a lot of these are out of production, however they keep popping up from time to time. I have an extra ambulance it if you are interested. I can let you have it for $21plus shipping
