1:72 Scale Metal Diecast – Spaehpanzer Luchs Lynx Amphibious Reconnaissance Vehicle - German Army -  Length: 4.25"  Width: 1.5”

This model has a main body made of metal while the turret is made of plastic. The turret can rotate all 360 degrees, but the gun's elevation can not be changed. The wheels are free rolling and are very smooth, so be careful of where you place this model as it could roll "down hill". The coloring and markings are accurate and realistic.

The maker of the model, Eaglemoss, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp. These models have different details engraved such as doors, hatches, panels, lights, ports, antennas, machine guns, ropes, shovels, etc; all of these done with high accuracy and proportion. When they are painted in different color, say for example, shovels and ropes, they are indeed painted accurately.

The Spähpanzer Luchs (English: Scout Armored Car "Lynx") is a German 8x8 amphibious reconnaissance armoured fighting vehicle (Spähpanzer) that was in service from 1975 to 2009 with the German Army, who used 408 in their armoured reconnaissance battalions. It was developed by Daimler-Benz between 1968 and 1975, replacing the M41 and the Schützenpanzer SPz 11-2 Kurz.
