|During World War II, the Dodge Company produced tens of thousands of light weight, versatile trucks in the WC series. WC was a Dodge model code,
with W meaning 1941 and C for ½ ton rating. The C code was retained for the later ¾ ton and 1 ½ ton 6×6 models. Thousands of these trucks were
also exported to Allied nations including the Soviet Union under Lend-Lease. These Dodge trucks continued to serve after World War II in the US and
other nations and were used in the Korean War.
L’Arsenal has added four Dodge WC models to its growing line of 1/350 scale vehicles. Each bag includes 5 resin trucks and a small photo-etch fret
with radiator grids that is common for all vehicle types. They are well detailed and require a little bit of clean up after removing them from the resin
casting blocks. Such details as tire treads, wheel hubs, jerry cans and stowed equipment are represented. This is possible as the masters were produced
using detailed CAD drawings and rapid-prototyping technology.
