Exactly!  :smiley: Three legs from the box on the left, three legs from the box on the right. Six legs are better than four!  ;)

Why not just go all in and do four from each box on a stretched chassis?  ;)

Found a die cast MB Gwagon on ebay. Scales out very close to 1/35.

I've transposed a 1/35 vac form G-wag over top. Close enough for me.

Plan is to make it an ISAF truck with the cupola & GPMG mod. Sad factoid about the photo - that is the same unit Capt Nicola Goddard MSC, belonged to, and its possible that is her LAV-FOO in the background. A few hours after this photo was taken, she was killed in a firefight when a RPG hit the side of her turret.



Known as LUVW (Love Double You) in Canada, it sort of replaced the VW / Bombardier iltis 4x4 in the Liaison and light recce role. Also used by Military Police. The die cast one is obviously civilian and requires a bit of modification to make it Cdn Army spec.



Scale comparison to vac-form:


5 mins with a small screwdriver and its read for strip & primer.

What are you going to do about the wheels? The wheels from the Revell Wolf kit won't be an exact match to the vehicle in the picture, but maybe better than the chrome civilian wheels.

I'll probably use a Landrover wheel and scratch a new rim, and then cast copies.

In fact, I may use a spare chassis from the Tamiya landrover amb or the Itateri SAS version. That will give a better detailed underside and I can adjust the ride height a lot easier.

At least the Land Rover kit is good for something!
