I was hoping for this and now I am curious to see what the price will be for this kit on this side of the Pacific Rim: AFV Club 1:35th scale Rota Trailer with 2pdr ammunition and PE ammunition boxes (kit number FV35264)



If the price is "right" I might just have to get me a half-dozen of the things to make a Rota Trailer supply train :)

The ROTA trailer's out now: £17 in the Uk, no idea what the US price is.

Every time you eat celery,an angel vomits in a gas station bathroom. Tanks rule. I know the load is late,but the voices tell me to pull over and clean the guns.

I have their Centurion 5/1 on the way from an eBay seller - only $10 more expensive that the Tamiya one I missed out on - and from all I've read it's a gorgeous kit. I'm excited to get it in-hand! Destined to be a Vietnam veteran Aussie one now privately owned over there, in case anyone was curious  :)

I wonder of Roden releasing their's was the impetus for AFV Club to finally add an M37 to their line of Dodge 4X4s.  ;D

Technically,the B1 was different.  Now sure how different.

Mostly internal changes, wiring connectors etc., major external is the moving of the spare tire mount to the driver's door,
which according to the boxtop art makes the Roden kit a B1.

Another must have.  That thing would be devastating in a ground firing role. ;D

It probably would with the elimination of the middle pair. That would have been a great weapon to have in Korea against the massed wave attacks the Chinese used.

Or a route protection vehicle in Vietnam to tear up large portions of the jungle in the case of an ambush.

Mine would have six 7.62 mm machine guns.  Would carry more ammo to kill more zombies.  >:D
