MG083 British Humber Mk.1 Scout Car
Anyone who collects ARNHEM ’44 is sure to know about the classic movie ‘A Bridge Too Far’ (1977) directed by Sir Richard Attenborough that depicted the ill-fated ‘Operation Market Garden’ in general and the Arnhem battle in particular.
Among the many great movie stars in this WW2 epic was Michael Caine who depicted Lt. Col. J.O.E. Vandeleur of the Irish Guards in the film. Vandeleur led the front element of the British XXX Corps in his Humber Scout Car and that’s what K&C has portrayed in this great little set.
Lt. Col. Vandeleur (Michael Caine) stands erect in his Humber scout car as his forces attempt to reach Arnhem, just like in the movie!
