We start the construction with the body of the small Jeep. Due to their size, wheel arches and bumpers can of course only be realized with molded parts. The larger 1:28 models also have plenty of them. However, the hood cannot be opened here and there is no built engine underneath. As an additional detail, there is a small shovel that the larger model does not have.

The machine gun is intended to simulate a large ammunition box, which, however, completely limits mobility. The weapon cannot be tilted. The small trailer is built in just a few steps and looks very smooth thanks to the reversal of construction direction. It can also be loaded with accessories such as an ammunition box, a radio and a sandbag. The two minifigures included both fit in the jeep, even if the legs of one are a bit too long. As a result, it doesn’t lock neatly into the seat.


The set is a nice snack for in between meals. The 200 parts can be put together quickly and you get a stylish model with a trailer. The 1:35 discussion probably comes up again here, as more details would be possible at 1:28.
