Hey To All!! I am writing this review to say that I my self have never had no experience with this type of vehicle but a dear great friend and neighbor who is a retired U S Army Viet Nam Vet Scout who actually was on this vehicle during his multiple tours, I bought this model and for him and gave it as a birthday gift needless to say he enjoys it daily! the product went together very well, it is very detailed , you do need some skill for putting it together , it builds from the engine, to drive train to axles to frame to body work! I would definitely buy this again it well put together and worth the money, it can be time consuming, other than that I find it to be a great model. Hope this Helps! Scott M.
