MA118 Australian Land Rover Series II General Service in 1/35 scale

This conversion set is specifically based on the Tamiya Pink Panther but could be used with the Tamiya Land Rover ambulance as well.  The resulting model will be a long wheel (109 inch) base Land Rover as used by Australian Military Forces in South Vietnam.

 For prices please check the catalogue.

This shows the resin parts that will make a General Service Land Rover Series II without canvass tarpaulin as used by Australian Military Forces in South Vietnam.  Parts included but not shown in the image include: 2 jerrycans, handles and holders, a new rear bumper bar, four sets of rear seats (one shown), new rear panel and 4 bar tread and one spare tyre.
The instructions allow two versions to be made of this open topped version.  Version A uses the kit supplied rear panel with tailgate and bumperettes.  Version B provides a new resin rear panel without a tailgate and this version often carried two petrol jerrycans on the rear bumper.

Version A shown

There is not a lot of info on the web on the Military versions of the Australian Series II Land Rover.  The best place to find info is ANZAC Steel articles by Paul Handel.

MA115 - a set of Land Rover tyres (5 studs) including a spare for the bonnet.  These are designed to fit either Revell Series III of Tamiya Series II Land Rovers.

Ideal for replacing the very worn out Revell series III tyres or the Tamiya Pink Panther desert tyres.
