One of the most recognizable Allied vehicles of World War II was the Jeep – or ¼ Ton 4x4 Truck. Outfitted for a variety of roles, one of the most dashing was the role of British Special Air Services (SAS) “raider” operating far behind enemy lines. Equipped with extra fuel tanks, Vickers machine guns, and bullet-proof driver and passenger windshields, the SAS Jeeps were lightweight, agile, rugged vehicles well-suited for commando operations focused on disrupting enemy activity.
Another offering in their prolific line of Jeeps, Dragon beautifully captures the essence of the SAS raider. Molded in gray styrene with a fret of photoetch detail, a small sheet of decals, and instructions, this little subject is packed with features. Notably, a full engine and engine compartment are included, as are 5 Vickers K machine guns for 3 mounting positions. Figures, weapons, and gear for 4 SAS commandos are included as well. Detail is crisp and quite robust, and assembly sequence is straight-forward.
