Comments:
Injection-molded, 365 parts (13 PE, 6 vinyl), decals.

 

South Africa produced weapons to circumvent an arms embargo placed against it in 1977 by the United Nations. One of the vehicles developed was a mine-resistant, wheeled, self-propelled 155mm howitzer known as the G6 Rhino. 

Takom’s Rhino is molded in light gray plastic with just a few ejector-pin marks in need of filling and minor mold seams. Vision blocks, light lenses, and windows for the driver’s compartment are clear. Two photo-etch (PE) frets are included.

Overall, fit is good — I only needed filler where I got careless.

The six large tires are molded in vinyl with good tread and sidewall placards. Minor flash on the lip of each tire was easily removed with a sharp knife.
