Recreate the SAS Land Rover Pink Panther with a Tamiya 1/35 scale model kit.
Up to the early 1960s the Jeep remained the principal vehicle, but since then the ubiquitous Land Rover has been employed by the British Army. Since 1970 the SAS has used a more refined conversion of the long wheel base Mk II, as depicted in this kit. This version lacks windscreen and side doors, but carries mounts for two general purpose machine guns.
In desert operations the SAS Rovers are painted to suit the terrain, a sand-pink, which has led to the nickname "Pink Panther" being applied on occasion.
- Plentiful accessory parts
- Realistic figure included.
Really enjoyed this build. Simple but lots of character. I bought some European theatre resin wheels from Accurate Armour and did it in green and black BAOR colours and it looks amazing. Great starter kit, or for those who want to go to town on something. Great price from TTM and glad to support such a worthy cause. I'm making TTM my first port of call for all new armour purchases. Delivery was prompt.
