JB Models 1:76 Scale Vehicle Review

British F.V. 2361, Trailer Cargo 0.75 t, 1:76 Model Kit JB Models JB1001

Landrover L.W.B. towing a General Service Trailer. The model of the trailer is actually much more detailed than the Landrover included in the same kit. Cargo lashing points are clearly shown, and the canvas cover is detailed very nicely. Stabilizing jacks, handbrake, rear lights and other small parts add a lot of visual appeal to the model. The model has been painted NATO olive with black disruptive stripes. The trailer may be shown in a parked position by reversing the jacks. On maneuvers and in action, additional kit bags are sometimes placed on top of the canvas cover, and a camouflage net may be draped over the trailer.

Evaluation

Scale model with nice detail. The lashing points are shown clearly, and the canvas cover adds a lot of visual appeal. The model may be converted to a trailer with canvas tilt, simply by adding plastic side walls between the body assembly and part number 28. The plastic sides should be covered with tissue paper soaked in PVA glue to make them look like canvas.

The model may be shown in a parked position by reversing the stabilizing jacks.

Easy to assemble, only 15 parts.

Minimal flash and mould lines.

Four sets of decals are included in the kit.

Compatible with Airfix, Fujimi, Nitto, Trux, Crusader Models, Milicast and Cromwell Models.

Noticeable gaps between the body parts need to be filled prior to painting. Rai-Ro green wax is particularly useful for this kind of work, it flows into the gaps easily.

The G.S. Trailer is an excellent model, even if it requires a little extra effort to fill gaps between the body parts.
