Should I Buy WPL B Series? How Good is WPL B Series?
The B Series are the original WPL’s, scale models of historic military vehicles from both sides of the Iron Curtain.
As with other WPL ranges, they are available in three types. RTRs are supplied with the main assembly completed and ready to run, just charge the vehicle battery, install two AA batteries in the controller and you are ready to go on patrol.
The range is built from a solid foundation of four RTR Models.
The B14 RTR is modeled after the classic American M35 Truck.

Seen here in the form of a 4x4 light utility truck in the way that the original 6x6 versions are often modified once they entered civilian service after their military career.
Following that is the B16 RTR, these are a much more faithful model of the M35 ‘Deuce and a Half’ 2.5 Ton 6x6 Army truck.

The B16 Trucks are available in military green and desert yellow.
The next in the range is the B24. Closely inspired by the GAZ-66 light truck the B24 is the first of the Soviet era B series models.

This model is available in a military green as well as a civilian version reflecting the many tasks this rugged truck has undertaken.
Fourth in the range is the B36, taking inspiration from Soviet era vehicles again this 6x6 is modelled on the Ural 4320.

Supplied with a military ‘Kung’ box body that would have housed equipment such as a radio communications rig or mobile workshop in service. The 4320 has almost eclipsed its military background now many are in civil service as fire fighting equipment, logging and anywhere unsurpassed off road heavy transportation is required.
The KM (Kit Metal) versions are the top of the WPL range. Supplied in separate part form like the standard Kit the KM’s have the major WPL upgrades included. KM versions are supplied with rebuildable metal case axles with brass gears and powerful 370 motor two speed transmission giving a low speed high torque crawling gear and faster high gear for trailing. They also include the soft grippy tyres of the kit version and WPL wheels weights for all four or six wheels. These add masses of grip and help lower the centre of gravity for even better off road performance.

Both wheel and tyre styles will fit all the trucks, so if you prefer the style of the slightly smaller V2 tyres with authentic military V tread they are perfect for use on all B series models.
