EVA Models had a very nice resin kit of the Lunar Rover many moons ago. Are there currently any similar kits available out there?

I have a Model Assemblies 1/43 LRV (which is close enough to the 1/48 scale LM I want to display it next to) that I'm waiting to have built.

It's a beautiful die-cast kit.

Thanks Norman.

Does the diorama include the same version of the LRV? Do you remember the price?

This kit is completely different to the EVA kit. The scale is 1/43 v 1/32 and this kit is die-cast metal whereas the EVA is resin. It cost $95.

The EVA kit can be found on eBay from time-to-time, in fact I got one last year for about $45 (although I think it might be a copy).

Sometimes you can find one on eBay by looking for "Minichamps moon car." Excellent detail even if they are a bit small. I think I paid $45 but that was a great deal. I will buy another if they ever come up again.

Does anyone know where I can get a 1/32 or 1/24 Scale Lunar Rover model?

EVA Models is long gone and I can't find another kit. Thanks for the help in advance.

There is one of these on eBay right now listed as a Saxon Lunar rover. Opening bid is $99
The minichamps is a die cast preassembled. The saxon is die cast but assembly is required.
