For fans of modeling subjects from The Great War comes this artillery tractor and gun kit from Roden.
Founded in 1909, the Four Wheel Drive Auto Company (FWD) was a pioneering American company that developed and produced all-wheel drive vehicles. FWD created and built the Model B truck that saw wide use during the First World War by the American and British armed forces. It was deployed in a variety of roles such as a mobile repair shop, ammunition carriers and tractors for heavy artillery. There were more than 17,000 units built.

Rodenís kit #713 depicts the FWD Model B 3-ton truck towing the BL 8-inch howitzer Mk VI.

Online is an option. I believe Jadar Hobby carries the brand.

If you're not on a budget, a 1/35th scale resin FWD truck is available from Resicast... H.P.

Just love how primitive and clunky everything from this time period looks like. How about this: release it in all three popular scales and catch the market. Everyone is happy and we can get on to looking at the details of the kit and not how large it might be.
