"Excellent value"
TheJellyRanger (Atlanta, GA)
This was a lot of fun to build. Tons of bits; they even throw in a .50 cal if you’re feeling frisky and an alternate shovel. I was a bit too intimidated to hand-craft an antenna from the sprue as instructed but my skill level isn’t that great. I also skipped the drilling, but even so it turned out wonderfully. Heck, build it with the TOW set up on the included tripod and you get two items for one outstanding price. I also didn’t cement the decently-detailed included driver just in case I wanted to use the vehicle for photos without him.

"Well-bred MUTT"
smewald (riverside CA)
Although it may not be as popular or fondly remembered as the beloved Willys “Jeep,” the M151A2 Military Unit Tactical Truck (MUTT) served the U.S. armed forces well and many are still running in private hands. Molded in light tan, Tamiya’s kit contains three sprues: A and B sprues are box-sized and obviously common to other variants put out by Tamiya. The smaller C sprue contains the components for the TOW launcher, two TOW missiles in containers, guidance control console with cover and a tripod that can be posed to exhibit the launcher set up outside of the Mutt. This tripod even has an assembly jig built into the sprue. Placard decals are included for the TOW launcher and spares but not for the guidance console or the vehicle radio. I chose to mount the TOW in the back of the Mutt, which has the front passenger seat removed to make room for the tripod and missiles. The passenger seat becomes another jewel for the spares box. The kit builds in Army or Marines configuration and three sets of markings are offered: 82nd Airborne Division (complete with shoulder patch decal for the driver figure), 2nd Infantry Division, Korea, and Marine Corps version. The driver figure is of good quality. Color callouts include the camouflage pattern for the driver’s camo suit. Tamiya’s kit of the Mutt equipped with TOW missile launcher is a bargain at $10 and would be a bargain at twice the price. However, unlike Tamiya’s Willys in this scale, the Mutt is a curbside model with no engine. It does have a folding windshield and a small clear part sheet containing the windshield is packaged with the decal sheet. The instructions are good, although not perfect, and detail photos are provided for the launcher and accessories and for the spare tire and water can. I found this kit a joy to build and consider it another home run for Tamiya.

Sorry Hobbylinc I found this in my local store and snapped it up as a Nephew gift. Inexpensive, and although I followed the TOW instructions for Army the Marine version was a little more challenging (less realistic too). Is a kit that can be modified in so many ways with very little scratch-build knowledge and will certainly purchase again to try.

 
"An amazing little kit"

I gave this kit a 4 star rating, due to one tiny fact, and that is the front wheels can't be turned, if they made the front wheels turn able, this kit would be over the top. This doesn't directly affect the kit, but the give you some parts not used, I'd love if they gave these parts a purpose, like the 249 looking gun to be stored on the vehicle. But they give no such instruction on to how to do so. Other than that, it has great detail on underside, and all around. If you like the WWII Willys jeep from Tamiya, you'll enjoy this one, it has far more detail, and gives you an option to have the TOW on a stand. It also has a far more detailed soldier, and no the soldier doesn't fit in the WWII Willys.
