Rommel's Rod
The Desert Fox's Krazy Kommand Kar

  • Original year: 1969
  • Company: Monogram
  • Scale: 1/24
  • Designer: Tom Daniel

Talk about a wild, real gone dune buggy! Here's the granddaddy of 'em all! It's a WWII vintage half-track Kommand Kar that might have been used by a Desert Fox himself to prowl the shifting sands of the sinister Sahara. Powered by a supercharged Mercedes engine, it sports a Mercedes front end, half-track rear, realistic machine guns and the bleached skeletons of the Desert Fox and his driver.

Dave's comments:

My absolute favorite model as a kid. Built it twice. The skeletons, the machine gun, the silly palm tree image on the spare's got it all! One of Tom's most popular designs it's on the "most requested reissue" list for all model cars. This is the 1969 original and it's still factory sealed! I also have a '74 reissue that I'll build and display with this one. You can see other skeletons driving show rods when you look at the Li'l Coffin and Bad Medicine.
