R-WMIK TES(T/H) 2008+ Update
This 1/35th scale resin and etched brass set by Rob Tearle is designed to correct and convert the Hobby Boss Land Rover WMIK kit and transform it into a correct R-WMIK TES(T/H)* Standard from approximately 2008 onwards. Vehicles of this type and from this era were fitted with MAPIK Armour, ECM Suite and High Level Air Intake. The Re-Life vehicles were fitted with the rear internal firing platform, basic BOWMAN radio suite and short pattern belly armour along with a completely new ‘V’ shaped armoured rear body.This set also includes corrected roll frame and ring mounting, adjustable height commanders seat, new front wings, sand ladder and super-detailed weapons and mountings, along with many other corrected detail parts. New 12 spoke alloy wheels are included, including a spare wheel.
Thanks to Land Rover and Ricardo Special Vehicles for their assistance with our original WMIK vehicle kits. Thanks also to all who have helped with information on these later vehicles.
