Euro Revell has a lot of kits we rarely see or know about here in the States. Nifty models to be built!

Nice to see this one here! I am loving the whole idea of the HiAb equipped desert racer/support vehicle. But the SCUD launcher opens up a whole new possibility of imagineering - I'm thinking the Mad Max version of the Paris Dakkar run, lol (sorry, morning and coffee is still brewing, my brain isn't firing on all cylinders yet).

Decided not to do anything fancy with the interior,so it is a 9 seater truck!


Fitted the headlining (not often you need to say that about a kit..)


Then it was decal time...The union jack you will know,the white/red flag is the George cross - he English flag.


Plus an ''england'' banner for the front.


How it looks atm,next will be to clear the cab then wipers and windows etc...

A 9 seater seems about right, max crew or smaller crew with room for extra stuff (thinking duffel bags crammed with water bottles). The cab looks awesome, those decals really bring it to life and the paint is beautiful!
