The Dodge WC series, sometimes nicknamed “Beeps”, was a range of light military trucks produced by Dodge during World War II. The series included weapon carriers, telephone installation trucks, ambulances, reconnaissance vehicles, mobile workshops and command cars. They were replaced after the war by the Dodge M-series of vehicles. WC was a Dodge model code: W for 1941 and C for half-ton rating. The C code was retained for the ¾ ton and 1½ ton 6×6 Dodges.
The Dodge WC series were essentially built in two generations. From 1940 to early 1942, almost 82,400 of the ½-ton 4×4 Dodge trucks were built — initially called the VC series, but the great majority (from 1941) in the WC series, and in more variants.

The kit is an absolute pleasure to build. The detail is very good. The vehicle will be a asset to my gaming unit.
