We killed the last one in RAF service after a twonk drove it into a hangar writing it off whilst we were in Basra, Iraq around early '08. We had to swap to the much more capable JCB Fast-Trakc 2 (which had been around for about 10 years by then) but it never had the "personality" of the Unimog.

Also reminds me I've these Tamiyas to build too. Christmas task now I think:

Nice, I keep thinking I should get a Mog shell for mine. The CR-01 chassis is massively capable out the box.



A 'few' upgrades on mine though.
Wow looks impressive what upgrades have you done?

Saw a few Unimogs out in mongolia where they were built for the steppes.

However I will see your Unimog and raise you a Mercedes Zetro - met the owners of these two - I believe a million USD or so per truck, but that is in a country where I was shown a custom baby blue, with custom stitched baby blue interior brabus G Wagen biturbo v12 (maybe v8 but sure v12) that cost 500K USD imported.
