We’re all pretty excited about the latest 1/35th scale release from Gecko. It goes by the rather lengthy title of WWII British Army Open Cab 30-cwt 4×2 Truck – no doubt to avoid any copyright infringement by mentioning the name of the manufacturer of the real-life vehicle. OK. We won’t mention it either, but we all know, don’t we? (If you don’t it’s an A**$tin K30/YC).
No details other than what’s shown on the box as yet, but we can see that the kit includes one figure and photoetch parts and our editor tells me that a captured German version is included on the decal sheet for a vehicle left behind at Dunkirk. A nice early war kit which should feature in numerous BEF and Western Desert dioramas. Tiger Hobbies are the UK importer of Gecko kits so keep watching for an on-sale date from them.
