An ex-Esci 1/24 scale model-kit.

Mount the Machine-gun on a pickup (bed) of your choice, and voila an instant warlord vehicle....

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.

I have 2 of those old 1/24 ESCI kits. They were boxed as LAND ROVER 109 PARATROOPERS kit# 3037

warlord "technical" vehicles would be a cool idea!

I too have this kit but it is missing the gun. Maybe Italeri can fix me up with a replacement! Also one could take the recoiless rifle from the MPC Jeep and mount it for an interesting technical!!
