It's really nice to see a scale HiLux in styrene that's for sure and the option of two is better.

Got the one with the ZPU-1 in the back. It looks very nice indeed. Sure hope they'll continue that line. Would love to see a 40 series and a 70 series Land Cruiser, for instance.

Oh, and someone has to do a ragtag band (sungigs, flipflops, football shirts, the lot) of Somalis as a crew.  :D
Cheers,
Moritz

Model build and review of the Meng Model 1/35th scale Vs.Kfz.617 Minesweeper (kit number SS001) by Michael Benolkin at CyberModeler

click on html or image to read the review


Interesting vehicle and certainly very "tank-like" even with what are passing for wheels in this case.

The "Civvie" version works great for any variety of post-apocalyptic scenarios, from nuclear war to zombie plague. Or traffic jams...

The MSRP of ~$80.00 sort of takes the fun out of imagining anything with that kit :(

Great googly moogly! I never even thought to look at the sticker price...egads!

Never mind, I'll go back to the Snap together Revellogram kits in 1/32, I'm pretty sure I can still source those for a tad less.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Great to see the Mansyu in injection instead of resin and in the 'true' scale.  :P
