Mount the Machine-gun on a pickup (bed) of your choice, and voila an instant warlord vehicle....
For more detailed info about this new release, go to the Italeri website

That's really cool. Wonder what made them do it in 1:24. Perhaps they already has some Rover tooling and modifying it was cheaper than making a 1:35th tooling. Or maybe we will start to see more military vehicles come out in 1:24.
Like I wrote it's a re-pop of an old ('80s) Esci kit, IIRC it's the only 1/24 scale military kit they have done.
Italeri themselves, did a WWII Jeep (stock a fire vehicle) & Opel Blitz (stakebed & firetruck), but none were merchandised as military vehicles, Hasegawa did with a WWII Jeep and Kubelwagen.
Too bad Hasegawa never did a GMC Jimmy, that is what would've brought in the bacon...though if you want one in 1/24 scale, one can buy a resin kit.
