There is a small hole on the passenger side of the bonnet which takes a small mounting piece (can't remember the number though I think it is in my spares box) which carries the LMGs. Extra storage would come from either aftermarket of a different runner without the 75 mm howitzer.

Doing a bit of surfing, it would seem that SAS/LRDG Jeeps were fitted with brackets on the bonnet to fasten webbing for stowage, usually jerrycans.

Ah that makes sense, so if it was only the SAS or LRDG that used it then it would be factually incorrect to use it in a sea assault kit where obviously the SAS wouldn’t be present nor the LRDG. So in Other words I have used the correct, plain bonnet.

probably means they’ll add one as a part of a desert assault group then as there has already been the airborne Jeep kit so an SAS kit would be rather similar to that airborne kit. And to what I’m aware of there isn’t yet a kit with the Willy’s Jeep that’s in a desert setting. I remember there was a Land Rover desert kit with a few figures etc but perhaps they will release a Willy’s Jeep version obvioudly set around 1940’s

There was the Matchbox 1/76 LRDG set. They provide bonnet stowage for the Jeep, but no detail on the bonnet only straps on the stowage. Also you need to modify the rad grille (the box art is correct, the plastic isn't).

And Airfix have done Landies (1/72 series 2 SWB hard-top with the Bloodhound missile) and I'm pretty sure an LWB Coilie (or Wolf), but not an SAS special that I can remember.

Though I fly through the shadow of the valley of death, I shall fear no evil, for I am at 65_000 feet and climbing.
