The first comment is that the jeep sprues are absolutely identical. Beyond how you assemble them the sprues contain all the parts for all the variants. What is different, and what I didn't take a picture of, are the vehicle crews. The US version comes with a crew of four and the British version comes with a crew of two paras and a crew of two LRDGs. Even the decal sheet is common between the two kits. I was figuring that this would actually be the case and there would be plenty of extra weapons to flesh out the Warlord Games British jeep that I assembled the week before.
The kit looks pretty straight forward and typical of Rubicon comes with an excellent set of instructions. I'm hoping to find time to build at least one jeep this week just to get a feel for it. I need to get some AWI painting done as well! There is always something going on.
