Oh, for that price I thought it was going to be RC...

For the sick of cheapness guys like me, Aliexpress will clone it for 1/6 the price like the other Sol kits.

I think you meant to write 'sake', Rad. :D Sometimes predictive text features, and spell checkers, can insert words one had no intention of writing. :lolno: ...

When you can get a new 1/16 RC ABS Land Rover for £40 freepost (E-Bay) why would you get a 1/16 resin static jeep for $240,
I would feel as sick as Rad if I had to part with that amount of cash. :haha:
I think I am about to upset someone :haha:

Afternoon chaps,

I picked up a 1/16 Danbury mint willys jeep a couple of years ago, if I remember rightly it was under an hundred quid as well :D diecast metal, extremely well detailed and ready painted to boot, they seem to be going for a little bit more than that on Ebay these days but can still be had at a reasonable price sometimes if you keep your eyes open :thumbup:

Cheers, Lee.

They seem to have dropped in price over the last couple years. I just did a quick ebay search and found a good one for $75, and several in mint condition for under $150, and there's even a rocket launcher model for just $99. A couple years ago that would've brought $175 easily.

bought one of these for our battlefield to try. Really impressed with the quality and detail. Lots of moving parts. The hood opens and has full engine detail in it an Of course will be repainted...

Good deal for the price...
