Rubicon 1/56 British CMP 15cwt Truck

The Canadian Military Pattern (CMP) truck was a class of military truck -
of various forms - made in large numbers in Canada during WW2 to British Army
specifications for use in the armies of the British Commonwealth allies.
Standard designs were drawn up just before the beginning of the war.

CMP trucks were also sent to the Soviet Union following the German invasion,
as part of Canada's Gift and Mutual Aid program to the Allies. During the war,
CMP trucks saw service around the world in the North African Campaign, the
Allied invasion of Sicily, the Italian Campaign, the Soviet Front, the Burma
Campaign, the Battle of the Philippines (1941-42), the liberation of Northwest
Europe, and the Western Allied invasion of Germany. CMP trucks also saw service
in post-war conflicts in Indonesia, French Indochina, and the Portuguese
colonies in Africa.

Most CMP trucks were manufactured by the Chevrolet division of General Motors
of Canada Ltd and by the Ford Motor Company of Canada. The vehicle manufacturers
were able to rapidly ramp up their production because of an unusual degree of
inter-company collaboration in Canada, the use of interchangeable parts, and
because of the large amount of idle production capacity that was a lingering
result of the Great Depression. A smaller number of CMP trucks were assembled
from Canadian-made chassis and parts in Britain, Australia, New Zealand, South
Africa (2,600), India (9,500) and Egypt. Following British convention, CMP
trucks had right-hand drive even though most of them were built in Canada, which
