Thanks for posting it James. It looks to be a pretty nice model.

I liked the Roden Armored car, although details are a bit soft and there are a few fit problems. Hopefully they will iron out these problems as they release more armor kits.
I like the fact you can build two versions from the one kit, and the clear vacuformed tarp is a great idea.
This will be a definite addition to my two decade long Six Day War dio.

Thanks for the review Gino- this looks like a nice release. Its good to see there are quite a few decal options with it. Are you planning to do a build log with this kit at some point?

No plan for a build log right now. Maybe in the future, but I have too many projects going for now.

Hey, There,

Late to the party, but I am curious: Would this truck be appropriate for an NVA Ho Chi Minh trail diorama?

Always wanted to do such a dio with a MACV-SOG team and an NVA truck.

And has anyone built one of these yet? If so, any problems?

Squadron.com has this kit on special today for $25.00 and I'm thinking of taking the bait...

Thanks in advance!

With Regards and Aloha,

Johnny B.

What's that wary chap in the box art doing? Hooking up a tow cable? Is that the tailcone of a cluster bomb in the foreground? Such tension!
