Item DescriptionThe M151A2 was a variant of the M151, a military utility truck which was used by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps from 1959 to the early 1990s. The vehicle was originally designed to replace the M38/M38A1 utility vehicles used by the U.S. during WWII. The M151A2 variant was first deployed in 1972 and featured modifications such as upgraded rear suspension, larger turn signals on the front, and an M2 heavy machine gun in place of the previous M60.
The Tamiya model comes in 1/35 scale. The model depicted in the kit represents the vehicle as it was seen during the Grenada conflict in 1983.

Fantastic kit! Great figures, accessories, choice of markings for an often over-looked military operation by modeling companies. Typical high-quality Tamiya engineering, as in the parts fit together almost perfectly. Basically same as their other M151 kits but with some extra sprues for the specific mission. Only flaw I found in assembly of the whole kit, was the drivers side of the hood had the knock-out for the USMC version with the snorkel. Easily filled with some putty and a small piece of styrene sheet. Fun kit to build, great addition to the Gamma Goat for diorama.
