I remember the Rat Patrol model kit...

I think Aurora made it. I recall it having two OD jeeps, two gray Panzers (I think a Panther and a Panzer IV), sand dunes, palm trees and figures. I think I got it for a birthday present, probably in '67 or '68.

Only remember three characters from the TV series, the German commander, the Rat Patrol leader with the Aussie style bush hat, and the jeep driver with the Confederate cap. Also recall my dad saying that the original group were all British, no yanks (LRDG). And I recall the torch cut M3 halftracks made to look like SdKfz 7's. Oh, and the little hyper-delicate explosive balls they bluffed the Germans with, that would detonate at the slightest impact, yet their jeeps never blew up carrying them. That irony was not lost on me at a young age.

There was a British guy too and I think he was the only one not American. Being an American TV show of that time you have to expect that inaccuracy.
I too had the set and played it to death. My nieghbor got a GI Joe and big jeep that was supposed to be Rat Patrol too if my memory serves me right.
Was a good show for its day, I know I never missed an episode. The other favorite of mine was of course Combat.

I remember that too....

The series was shown here in the UK sometime in the 60's as far as I recall. Now I was very young at the time and it must have been some 40 + years ago, so someone may have to correct me on and add to, some of the names.

Sgt. Saunders ( who used to get shot every week if my memory serves me well )
Kowolski (?) I think he was the radio op.

It was good at the time. Shame it doesn't get a "one more time" showing but I guess with all those "Krauts" about it wouldn't get past the PC censors.

I had rented a couple of seasons from Netflix way back when, may be time to go back and rent those again along with the remainder.

Had this kit!

August 20 2012, 8:15 AM 

As a child I had the Rat Patrolkit.
Got it from my bigbrother as a gift (well, "persuaded" him to give it to me I suppose!).
Never heard about SAS or anything like then, however later read one of my brothers first issue of Military Modeling about the SAS and I was hooked!
