Cool Fact
Chrysler released a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon "Tomb Raider" model to coincide with the release of the film in 2003. Limited to just over 1000 units, the special edition vehicle had a sticker price of US$28,815.

 

Typical for most of Revell's metal body kits, this went together pretty easily. Most of my time went to repainting and detailing what was already there, although I did have to add the windshield-mounted spotlights as they weren't included in the kit. These were made by taking a pair of Monogram '79 Camaro headlight buckets and a set of lenses from AMT's '65 Lincoln. Everything else is a box-stock buildup.
