The Wolf is probably better in the civilian world as the G-Class. It life as a development to answer a put out by the German military for a light, capable vehicle.

Although the VW won the contract, Mercedes were to secure some military with other nations and brought out a civilian version. the German military were for a replacement for the Iltis, Mercedes offered the G-Class for consideration.

time they won the contract and the Wolfs entered service in Since then they been used by the Bundeswehr in all operations overseas although proved extremely vulnerable to bombs in Afghanistan and have withdrawn from there. are used for a multitude of duties liaison, transport, missile for TOW armed Wiesels and also by the special forces.

The first thing you notice opening the box is that it doesn’t in two parts with a lid but is a wraparound box flaps at each end. It may a strange thing to note but I can’t abide this of box! Nowhere to put my sprues working.

Once inside there are 3 sprues of Revell’s green plastic, a transparent with the windows, five tyres, a sheet of decals and an A4 booklet with a length of wire taped to it to use for antenna.

Revell have labelled the alphabetically these are not used in the of the parts which means can be some searching to do to fond the part.

There are ejector marks on pieces but the majority of pieces are so out on the sprue that most but not all will be hidden.

Construction is into 29 stages, with being called out as items are Steps 1 to 4 cover the construction of the The inside of the tub has some ejector mark but it looks like are mainly going to be covered by pieces. There are decals for the and the dash which means it probably be a good idea to the interior before it gets too in. Stages 5 to 12 cover the construction of the gear, steering and their to the chassis, whilst step 13 the interior to the chassis. If care is the steering should be positionable. At point the model will a little strange as there are no to the interior as yet. These are in stages 14 to 18.

One thing to note — the is constructed in such a way as to make it to open the doors. There are two cooler grills and bumpers in the kit and which to use depends on whether a or Austrian vehicle is being Stages 19 to 21 are the fixing of the clear to the tilt sides. I think the plastic parts are way overscale, and it be an idea to look to replace with some clear acetate if possible.

Stage 22 is the spare wheel and whilst stage 23 sees the of the roll over bar. The can be finished either as an open in which case another bar is added or with a canvas The tilt panels have moulded on which don’t too bad.

There are two different set ups depending again on which is being modelled, and the last to go on are the wing mirrors.

Four marking schemes are provided. The is for a 3-colour vehicle belonging to 1st PanzerArtillerie Batallion 215 based in Second is also is 3-colour vehicle belonging to the German troops in Afghanistan. Third is a vehicle in camouflage colours, and an Austrian vehicle serving KFOR. There are also two Bundeswehr plates plus a of numbers if you want to make a registration. There are even two ‘250 G’ decals to go on the of the mirrors.

When reviewing or looking at a kit it is important to remember who their market is. These are entry kits available in local toy often the only plastic stocked at all.

They are but in the last few years amongst all the and re-boxes Revell have some quality kits of own, this being one of With a little attention to a few this will build up a nice model which is a different from the norm. For definitely a good buy.
