Thank you very much Ronnie, your first pm didn't came through...

 

I have contacted Ronnie via PM and he agreed to expand this great thread. As from now all members are asked to add their toy Jeeps and models to make this thread become our modeler's section Jeep reference.

 

So please feel free to post your toy Jeeps and models. If available add informations about manufacturer, scale, age, material, value etc.

 

We are looking forward to see many, many more Jeeps here!

I don't have many jeeps but thought I would add the few that I have.

 

This is an overall shot of all of the jeeps.

 

Jeeps.JPG

 

This one does not have a maker's mark on it so I am not sure who made this. The date says 1996. It has quite a bit of detail

 

Jeep No.JPG

 

This one is the Danbury Mint jeep. The small part on top is a railing. You can make this one with or without the top.

 

Jeep Danbury.JPG

 

This one is not a jeep but I hope it is OK to add this one. This is an old car from the Hallmark Series.

The small one is a little larger than a matchbox. This one is made by Corgi. Quite a bit of detail for so small a car

Last one is the 1/6 jeep like Ronnie already posted. I really like how he repainted his.

Thanks for adding it to this thread.

This metal Jeep was made after the war in Germany by "Arnold". As you can see, dad played a lot with it. Unused/mint Arnold Jeeps reach high prices today.

I know I have posted this one before elsewhere here in our section but it's worth to be displayed here as well I think. My dad's favorite toy after the war. "Made in the U.S.Zone" by Arnold as well. If this one could talk...

The Constabulary Arnold is quite rare and sought after, even in this condition. I have 3 MP Arnolds myself (2 early, 1 late version) and my father has 6 or 7, including 2 different civilian versions. Together we also have a small collection of tin toy jeeps from the 1945 to the early '50's from different European countries. I'll have to make some pics & post them on the forum once.

 

If you're interested in German-made tin jeep models I can recommend this handy guide: http://www.jeepfreun...n_toy_jeep.html . No ties to the seller.

Thanks for posting this link. I was aware of this site once but lost the track. Would be great to see your Jeeps here as well.

Today I would like to add my little Schuco Jeep & trailer to our collection. Scale of this solid metal Jeep is 1:90. Notice that the windows are pantied. The only non-metal parts of these "Schuco Picolo" vehicles are the rubber tires.

The whole combo within it's blister:

Great thread! I never realized there was so much variety out there. About 10 years ago Johnny Lightning sold an assortment of WWII Army & WWII Navy vehicles. I bought a few of the jeeps (but I have no idea where they are now) out of curiosity. The Navy vehicles were marked up for Pearl Harbor, although there is no way an MB or GPW was present during the attack (barring movies of course).

Ronnie, thanks for starting this thread. And, thanks all of y'all who posted your Jeep photos, too (RustyCanteen, Kat, Proud Kraut, Earlymb, Old Marine). Very cool stuff. I'm going to have to dig the couple I have out and post a few photos. Thanks, again!

Thanks Cobra and everybody.
Rusty Canteen, the MB or GPW wouldn't have been at Pearl Harbor but the MA, the Ford GP, and the Bantam were probably there. The early jeeps had been sent out for testing. They were everywhere.
Thanks for your post.
Ronnie
