Revell Eager Beaver Truck

Yes, the 1/35 Eager Beaver 2.5 Ton Truck with Figures is back and it should be available (or about to be) at your local hobby shop. The kit is molded in dark olive green and for its age, there is barely flash to deal with. The figures look like they were taken from the plastic soldiers bucket. But hey, this is one old kit so lets keep it real. As with other kits from the day, this one has loose sub sprues in the box.

Decals are not as solid white and placing them over a dark Olive Drab color wont help that much. The tires are made out of vinyl. I would love to know if these were also offered in the same material back in the day, so please drop us a line in the comments section below.

Don’t take it as a 100% fact, but the figures seem to be more on the 1/32 side rather than the 1/35 scale printed on the box (I might be wrong).
