Wow, fantastic acquisition Jay!!!!!

I've never seen one of these Taowan vehicles up close and personal, but from the photos they look superb. Must be very heavy though? any trouble moving it around?

Well done!!!!! Cool Cool Cool

I could only find two vehicles.. neither of which were the Jeep. But both were up in the 800 dollar region. So I assumed that the Jeep was a similar price.

Yeah, yeah ..I know...never assume Wink

I purchased this from a site in France called MACHINEGUN.FR the price is in Euros ,so not too bad considering a plastic 1/6 dragon tank would set you back about the same ! Plus as we are not out of Europe at the moment no import duty !
