Italeri has already released a number of variants of the DUKW. The latest version is a British DUKW in 1/35 scale.

Inside the box are 185 olive coloured plastic parts attached to five sprues.

In common with the earlier releases, this kit is well detailed and includes a rear covered tarpaulin to cover the cargo area if desired.

As an option, the modeller may choose to finish this model as an American DUKW with the .50 calibre machine gun mounted oin a ring at the front of the vehicle.

Marking options are for a British or an American version. Paint options are white for the British version, or good old Olive Drab.

This is another nice variation on Italeri's high quality DUKW theme.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks to Italeri for the sample
