1/35 Fire Force South African Defense Force Eland 90 Armoured Car
Resin Model Kit, Box Condition: VG++
Very rare. Nicely molded high-definition resin kit with very good overall detail. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. Painting and insignia details are included. The Eland was the standard armoured car of the SADF and was originally developed as an improved Panhard. The Panhards were almost completely unsatisfactory; South Africa rebuilt them, gaining valuable experience along the way. When replacements were needed, they produced the local Eland series. This was one of the first all-South African manufacturing and design programs to be undertaken after WW2. Elads were superbly suited to the terrain and tactics of the SADF and proved their worth over and over in combat. Rhodesian operated them also.
