"From 1936, the British Army began to receive Pioneer heavy recovery vehicles. The first 43 delivered were designated the Pioneer SV1S[1] and the Pioneer SV1T both with a 3-ton folding crane and lockers for recovery equipment and towing bars. Most of these early Pioneer recovery vehicles were lost with the BEF.

The Pioneer SV2S[2] had a simpler redesigned extending crane that provided greater lifting height. It was Introduced in 1938 and remained in production throughout the war, with a total of 1,975 were built by war's end.

Among the Pioneer's equipment was a pair of tracks that could be fitted over the two rear wheels, converting it temporarily into a half-track and giving greater traction on soft ground.

The last Pioneer recovery vehicle was not retired from the British Army until the 1980s in Belize…."

Very nice review but others a bit more cautionary. The December 2017 issue of Fine Scale Modeler covers this kit in one of "their Workbench Reviews". Among the problems listed are random incorrect parts labels; no rigging instructions; lack of interior detail. Overall they were happy with the fit of the parts and the PE details. They recommend it for someone who had built a few kits before and did say it would be a good starting point for someone who wanted to super detail the vehicle.

As always thanks for these Tango my friend.
