This is the Accurate Armour R-WMIK TES(T/H) 2008+ Update in 1/35th scale. Accurate Armor has made this conversion for the Hobby Boss Land Rover WMIK kit transforming 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 Armor, ECM Suite and High Level Air Intake.
This was a fussy conversion and I do not recommend it for the feint of heart. I had to do a fair amount of scratch building. I also had to put things together and tear them apart several times. The Accurate Armour directions were entertaining as always. I enjoyed the project and its challenges. The engine is wired and accurately hosed. The vehicle is thoroughly detailed and stocked accordingly. The paint represents a vehicle that has been exposed repeatedly to sandstorms. The paint is accurately depicted… chipped and abraded.
