When the S.A.S. first started their covert operations in North Africa, they worked closely with the L.R.D.G. who would drop them off before a mission, and pick them up at a rendevous after the mission.
I've had this model for quite a while, and unfortunately there are splits in all of the tyres. I read somewhere that this is caused by some sort of chemical reaction between the plastic of the model itself, and the vinyl used for the tyres.
Inspite of the splits in the tyres, this is still one of my favourite models as it's from my favourite period of WW2, i.e. The Western Desert Campaign.
