My recently built 1/35 Eland 60. Kit used was a TAKOM AML-60. Modifications done to pannier compartments in front of rear wheels (angled tops), fuel filler added, cable drum made and put on side of turret, tyres changed for a set from Mirror Models which have the correct tread on them.

The faint insignia decals on the crew doors were supplied by MAV decals. Seperate pic of the design included.
Vehicle is done in Rhodesian Camo to show what they looked like when used by the Rhodesian Air Force Armoured Car group.

There are plenty of photos on the internet showing the Eland 60 and 90. Be aware that the rear deck and back end of the Eland 90 varied depending on which Mark you are doing. The Rhodesians used the Mk 5.
Next on my list is a Rhodesian Eland 90. Again the various mods to be done including fitting a .303 Browning on the turret in front of the hatches and the spare wheel on the rear top of the turret. Also the rear deck and rear mods.
