When we released the newest design of the classic GMC CCKW 2 1/2 ton cargo truck, we put together some add-on packs to give you total control over customizing your new kit. Here’s a little bit about each of those sets.

Canvas Bed Cover

In 1943, the canvas bed cover or “soft top” replaced the hard metal covers on the CCKW. The canvas cover allowed more trucks to be shipped via naval convoys and reduced the overall weight of the vehicle. This also allowed for easy installation and removal of the cover, as the CCKW was commonly fitted with specialization attachments.

Our Canvas Bed Cover kit features:

  • Brickmania custom fabric bed cover
  • Brick-built support frame for the cover

Canvas Cab Cover and Winch

Accidents and collisions were common on the Red Ball Express. Several versions of the CCKW were outfitted with a winch to assist with vehicle recovery, such as pulling a truck out of a ditch. The canvas cab cover was designed to reduce truck size for shipping and provided a bit of shade for the drivers on their long trips inland.

Canvas Cab Cover and Winch kit features:

  • BrickArms M2HB
  • Brickmania custom fabric cab cover
  • Bumper winch with string
  • High-quality custom stickers

Bomb Loader

The M27 Bomb Service Truck was a CCKW variant outfitted to help load heavy bombs for aircraft. After moved into place by a dolly on a track, the bomb hoist would lift the ordnance. The hoist was mounted on a steel I-beam that allowed it to slid the bomb into the truck. The process was reversed at the airfield, loading it directly into the bay doors of an Allied bomber.

Our Bomb Loader kit features:

  • Bomb loader hoist
  • Bomb loader cart
  • Bomb

If you didn’t get one of your own yet, buy a CCKW soon before we sell out!

All Brickmania model kits are made of new-condition LEGO bricks. This model comes disassembled and includes complete printed building instructions and comes packaged in a sealed box. This is a limited-edition kit and production may be discontinued at any time.
