Camion F.V. 18061, General Service, Landrover L.W.B.

Revue de la Maquette JB Models au 1/76

Camion Radio F.V. 18602, Landrover L.W.B.

The long wheelbase Landrover fitted avec external antenna mounting brackets. This is the F.V. 18602 véhicule radio variant of the standard military Landrover L.W.B. Le conducteur is un parachutiste britannique de Matchbox. The soft plastic figurine was cut off at the waist et glued behind the wheel. To ensure a good bond, the editor superglued a brass wire peg into the figurine et le siège de conducteur. The véhicule is painted NATO olive avec black disruptive stripes. Le conducteur was painted in place - not an easy job, actually - then the windows were glued into the windshield frame from the outside. On maneuvers ou in action a camouflage net may be draped over the canvas tilt.
