French BEEP


The ITALERI model of the « Beep »

It is a re-boxing of the rather old, 70's era Pearless Max kit. Italeri regularly re-issues this model. For the 50'th anniversary of the Normandy landings, it was issued with special box art. The Italian brand also sells the Command car, the dodge WC 62/63, the Dodge WC 55 « Anti-tank » and the Dodge WC 54 Ambulance.

The SKYBOW model

Lately, Skybow has been selling a series of Dodges of great quality, among which are the command car and the 6x6. Recently also, the molds of these models were bought by AFV Club.


EDUARD has photo-etched sets available to detail the Italeri kit.

VERLINDEN also has a set to detail the command car.

Finally, two conversions are offered by AZIMUT: dodge WC 64 KD and WC 53 Carryall.


The available documentation for these vehicles is very rich. The Internet will also give you access to many pictures of restored vehicles.

Here are a few links :











I also have the excellent special number n° 5 of Militar’s kits by Gerard Deygas. This magazine by itself allows one to detail the whole series of Dodges.
