Revell/Moebius 1/25 International Lonestar

I finally got around to a return to modelling (rather than just buying the occasional model.

Having found Amazon selling this at under 35 (free delivery as I already had Amazon Prime) so I went mad (somewhat!) and bought a second.

My intention is to convert the model into RMF1254. My...

I began to wonder if the "60" quoted was 60 Kph. Even at under 40 mph that is still less than 3 hours driving. Maybe they slowed down for the bumpy bits!

62 mph on those Outback roads would kill a...

thanks, I had checekd that page out though. There it says the RML only had Iveco or Cummins replacements. With the mis-named AEC engine I am wondering if the replacement engine is correct, but Revell...

Just got home with my issue. Looks a reasonably comprehensive test, stretching to 6 pages with plenty of photos. Probably one of the best test reports you will see in the magazine press.
