....the old Italeri "Commando Car" (Euro SAS) kit with Tamiya figures and at least a couple of Tamiya accessories too - I recognize that satchel! I guess even Tam realizes their African SAS jeep with the two handle jerry cans and solid handle on the browning just wouldn't fly! *_*
The old Italeri kit isn't that bad, the tanks need tweaking and some British features need to be added, but you can still find the old Italeri kit for cheap so why bother with this one? Reminds me of Tamiya releasing the old Italeri field tool shop with a couple of mechanics...I think it was like 35 bucks.....lol
..but as some say their focus is R/C so I guess it's ok huh?

Because Italeri is not so widely available in Japan, hard to get in fact, and when you do find it; it is very expensive. Its my understanding their italeri repops are primarily aimed at the domestic market

There was a time when Tamiya was the end all be all. Now I just don't care about most of there new or revamped old kits. Sure I do like there M51 but that has more to do with my like of the M51 over what Tamiya sis with it. There 1/32 planes are the bomb, but there tends to lack in a way it did not uses to. Now Tasca that is a defrent mater.
...in about 1972...when I was 13...and 'The Brady Bunch' was in primetime...and it was probably less than 5 bucks....and nobody else made one....and I didn't know that much about jeeps....
For some reason I never got the Italeri "Commando Car", although I certainly snagged the Tamiya and Italeri jeeps and liked the Italeri a bit more than Tamiya--I guess Tamiya-san likes it more than his own mold as well.
And yes, I posted before actually looking at the fracking link....
