The model is one of the newer Attack releases and is flagged as an improvement on their older range.
However, well I should have read the reviews before I bought the kit. Every part had flash and it's a hard plastic and was a pain to remove particularly on the smaller pieces. The bow gun didn't fit as the hole was too large so I had to put a piece in to secure it. The axles were off,the drive shafts were too short and needed replacing. The windscreen was moulded as a solid piece so had to be cut to insert the windows. The sand channels were poor and I had to add edges and brackets. The chevron deflectors on the bonnet were awful so I added strips of light plastic. The aerial is stretched sprue and I added wire handles on the bonnet and rear doors. The decals disintegrated also.
There was not a single part that didn't need sanding, cutting, drilling, filling or replacing. It was the closest I came to binning a kit since I returned to the hobby. It did come out reasonably well in the end and since no other manufacturer offers this vehicle it was the only way to go.
The chassis was produced by Marmon Herrington, a U.S. company, still in business. It was four wheel drive, the armour plate was produced in South Africa where the vehicle was assembled. A total of 5,700 in various marks were completed and were used by the British as well. They appeared in various conflicts after WW2, including Israel, Cyprus and Indonesia.
