Resicast – Airborne Jeep Royal Artillery Conversion Kit

Review by Alan McNeilly

Introduction 

When I first got back into modelling about 4 years ago one of the kits I bought was the Resicast Airborne RA Jeep conversion set kit No 35.149.  I opened the box looked at all the resin parts inside, a fret of PE and though I’ll never build that so I closed the box and put the kit away, thinking that one day I might advance enough to give it a go.

Well 3 years later and with the announcement of the MB 1/35 glider and C47 my interest perked up again, a recent reorganisation of the stash brought the kit to my notice, so here is a short in box review of what you get.

Elite forces have always been popular subjects.  The history, achievements and failures of the Parachute Regiment are well documented, earning them a well deserved and respected reputation throughout the world as a serious professional fight force.  Tough men often sent to do the impossible with minimal back up in terms of support weapons.

During WW” to help overcome this deficiency standard infantry equipment was adapted to fit the parachute roll and provide at least basic support and recce ability for troops landed behind enemy lines.  These heavier items could be glidered in to provide limited anti tank support, recce and supply ability.  The Willys jeep was one of the few vehicles that could be transported by air and so became a very useful vehicle for the Paratroopers and was converted into several role specific versions.

Resicast AOP Carrier Mk I

Review by Alan Mcneilly

Introduction 

This was the first of the Tamiya Universal Carrier Conversions I saw, but the most recent I purchased.  Perhaps I have left the best to last, as this kit comes with a fully detailed engine. Kit No 35.1192.

The AOP carrier was basically an Armoured Observation Post giving the Royal Artillery a quick means of moving around the battlefield and offering some limited protection.  Initially Scout Carriers were used for this role and were so successful the AOP was developed.  Aveling Barford produced the first AOP Mk I with 95 units being ordered.  The Mk I Universal Carrier was adapted to fit this role; alterations were made to the front firing slot and the addition of a variety of stowage brackets/boxes completed the conversion.
