Tom Daniel was the auto designer that inspired thousands of young minds. After a long and mysterious absence one of his popular kits came back to hobby shop shelves. Stephen Lawson takes a look at Rommel's Rod, the Desert Fox's Krazy Kommand Kar.

I always wanted one of these but never ended up getting one. Maybe the time is right...

Nice MG 34 in the kit IIRC.

This is a great kit. I bought two!
I've seen some outrageous mod builds of this kit online and in person.
Thanks for the review

Likewise KSO, a great basis for mad modding . . . imagine "Rommel's Rat Rod!"

I have one. Really neat. The skeleton isn't so great tho. Needs a lot of work.

I have an old Tamiya Pz IV that will provide the tracks and suspension; this is almost a MUST do!

It's a fun kit. I really do recommend it!
