As sure as the machine gun was born it was discovered that airfield protection and convoy escort duties need to be motorized. Better still the company chosen to manufacture this hot box was Rolls Royce. With all the recent surge in 1/32 WWI aviation kits Roden offers a great little incentive to add to the depth of any large scale display. . . The vehicle was modernized and upgraded in 1920 and in 1924, resulting in Rolls-Royce 1920 Pattern and Rolls-Royce 1924 Pattern. In 1940 it served further in Ireland, the Middle East and Africa. It is the latter series this issue represents. You have to admire Roden's box art. The shape of the rotating turret was changed: it was opened up and less rounded longitudinally. It was fitted with a Boys rifle and Vickers guns. With the onset of conflict, and frequent air attack, another gun (a Lewis infantry model)was added for conducting anti-aircraft fire.

This is a great kit. Already done but waiting to be painted. I plan to do a dio with a metal 54mm Lawrence of Arabia I bought a couple of years ago and still waiting in his box...
