I agree, very nice photos. Is there a 1/35 or 1/24 kit of this vehicle already, or if not do we have any hopes of seeing one in the not too distant future?

Hi Jeremy,

There is a 1/32 scale version of the Humber Tourer (Monty's) Old Faithful, a walkabout that to follow on that, but nothing else in plastic as far as I know. I don't recall having seen a resin kit either.

Like British Trucks there is a complete lack of both British and American Staff Cars, which is a great pity.

IBG seem the only company who might produce on the truck front, Bronco and Tamiya have done German/French Staff Cars but nothing for the Allies yet.

That is a pity. Hopefully the 1/48 release of the Tamiya Citroen and Ford as well as the dual releases of the 1/35 Bronco Opels are a sign of things to come, albeit probably very slowly.

I'll have to check out that 1/32 Humber, although that's not a scale I would normally consider building armor in.
