IPMS UK Armour TAS Kit Review of the "Landrover FC Ambulance 1 tons", By Ian Sadler.
The latest kit from J B Models is the 1/72 scale kit of the 1 Tonne Landrover Ambulance .
This kit comes in the usual familiar stout cardboard box with the contents in a re seal able poly bag. The outer covers front and back have the work art and colour illustrations for placing the red crosses on and measurements of the kit in mm. The kit comprises of 3 medium grey sprue and two clear ones and a set of decals. The total number of parts including the extra ones for the doors to be open and an extra lower floor pan are 45 parts, on the decal sheets there are enough for 4 vehicles with red cross markings and one with red crescent markings . A full guide to the recommended colours that can be used are listed along with ref to the Humbrol colour charts. The parts are clean and free of flash, sink marks or ejector pin marks, a blemish free kit. The model can be completed right hand drive or left hand and the rear doors can be open to show the fitted interior or a fully closed up option is in the kit. I have left the best information till last , once more John , has thought about this kit from a modellers point of view , the front cab is again in clear plastic and so is the internal dividing wall , all it needs is careful masking and then painting both inside and out and the windows are done . You also have the lights on the top of the vehicle in clear plastic ready for the correct Tamiya colours to stain them. Please let us have no comments about the wrong style of tyres in the kit, in my local scrap yard there were at one time over 50 of these ambulances and at least 4 different types and styles of tyres were fitted including civilian. Overall, yet an other winner from John who is listening to modellers and providing models of very good quality at a reasonable price. This is a pre build up review but I can see no problems when I build it up. Many thanks to John for supplying the kit for review. Look for press announcements as to availability in your country
