UK PRICE FOR GECKO 1/35 WW2 BRITISH AMBULANCE K2/Y KATY £39.99 RRP


Recommended Posts

There has been speculation that the Gecko Model will be double that of the Airfix version which is now £33.99 so you could expect £67.99 RRP which would be reasonable as the Gecko one comes with far better detail.

 

But its not £67.99 RRP not even £59.99 RRP or even £49.99 RRP but a very reasonable £39.99

Wow - that is a lot of bang for a few extra bucks...

 

• Accurate Trakgrip general purpose tyres

• Three different headlight types (with blackout masks as appropriate)

• Optional furled and unfurled cab side curtains

• 6 stretchers (4 plus 2 folded)

• 4 folded blankets and 4 correct British Army pattern stretcher pillows

• Optional standard and extended exhaust pipes

• Optional early (w/o sling rings) and late (w/ sling rings) wheel hubs

• Optional roof ventilators

• Optional wing mirrors

• Driver figure (including rifle for RASC drivers)

• Optional high/low stretcher/seat configurations for rear bay

• Optional folded internal curtains

• Optional jerrican/2 gallon can carriers

• Optional early fabricated and late pressed steel spare wheel cover panels

 

I am liking the sound of the optional roof ventilators / the furled cab side curtains look rich in detail / a proper photo etched grill is a step up - roll on summer :)

Is that the type used in 'Ice Cold in Alex"?

If you're trying to replicate one of the main scenes from the film neither this, or the Airfix, offering will do that without major work as the vehicle that appeared in the film was an Austin body on a 4x4 CMP chasis to give the 'desired' off road capability.

Some of the incidental night scenes though did use true Austin K2's
