Today I present a bit of a rarity, in several ways. This is a photo from the collection of Master Modeller and Toy Soldier Collector, Victor Morris. It is a Tim Mee 60 mm cannon and cab over truck.
Vic not only has a large collection of 60mm items, he has a very fine collection. The vehicles and figures are all brand new right out of the box, even though they are all forty or fifty years old. This rare Tim Mee cab over truck comes with the cannon that you see here. The cannon has a gun that moves up and down. The original Tim Mee cannon barrels did not move and this was a huge improvement at the time.
Tim Mee also made a huge Jeep with this very nice, but over sized gun. Vic has taken the Tim Mee regular two and a half ton truck and added the gun. Nice conversion, Vic!
Simply cut the base out of the Jeep so that the floor panel fits the rear end of the truck. Instant gun truck. These trucks are often still around but many times they are missing the tent canvas on the rear. This is a great way to make up for that lost part. Thanks Vic for a great look at your wonderful collection!
