Joining Dragon's previously released 1/35 scale plastic kit of a Desert Raider 4x4 Truck is this second kit with a different weapons configuration! The famed Special Air Service (SAS) of the British Army was formed in July 1941 by David Stirling. It was a commando force designed to operate deep behind enemy lines, something it did very successfully. Specially adapted vehicles were used in North Africa, including the famous 4x4 ¼-ton Truck, though heavily modified for its behind-the-lines role. The vehicle began appearing in July 1942. They were generally stripped down to save weight and, for operations in the hot climate, the grill was removed and a water condenser fitted. Weapons such as Lewis and Vickers K machine guns were mounted for use against ground or aerial targets.

Dragon’s newest 1/35 scale kit depicts a vehicle heavily modified for desert operations by the SAS and LRDG. It is heavily loaded with weaponry different to the preceding kit release. While it still has a Vickers K twin machine gun up front, in the rear is a .50-cal machine gun. As before, jerry cans containing spare fuel and water, to allow reconnaissance missions deep behind the frontlines, are added. Even the complete engine is included, which allows a modeler to depict a maintenance scene. Also of great utility is this kit’s brand new two-man crew, showing SAS members in typical garb. When this kit and the earlier one are combined, modelers have the makings of a potent SAS team ready to range across the desert sands of North Africa!
