Disney has a line of items, more on the toy side really, from some of the Indiana Jones's movies.The ONLY item I found to be 1/72-1/76 scale was the flying wing from the first movie, and it is well made The others, like the tank from the third and the various figure only sets, come in at 28mm (GRRRR!!)The truck that was used to drag Indiana Jones,firts movie again, is available in ho/oo scale.
I try to find the occasional item from unique sources in braille scale but they just seem to miss our scale by that much!

Hi,

I don't know about the rest, but the truck was a (poor) replica of a mercedes LG3000. You could use MAC distribution's 72115 kit for this.

Regards,
Pascal

Domi Jadoul of Retrokit released a 1/72 model kit of the "Steel Beast" about 6 months ago. The kit represents the tank from the Last Crusade and even includes an "Indy" on horseback and German soldier. Here's a link: http://www.retrokitonline.com/index.php ... ucts_id=85

BTW, just to be up front, Retrokit is a sponsor of my website.

This is the "American Adventurer" from their Pulp/Horror line. Quite the deal at .69p! They also have two sets of "Arabic type cultist guards" who would make some good enemies. Now we just need a tall, bald, shirtless Nazi in 1/72.
