Very nice Fred, and a favourite  vehicle of mine too :wub:
I have built a  fair few in 1/72nd scale.  I think that they  can cope with reasonable  surf but nothing  too rough I  dare say

That was my only 1/35 esky.  I must source more.

In addition Meng include three different eskies in the unarmed (if you don't count an LMG and a light 50) version of their 1/35 Toyota Hilux kit.  Which I have but forgot about what came with it.
They also do an equipment set which contains two sets of all the equipment so you get six eskies as well as a heap of jerry cans, spare wheels and guns.  I have ordered one of these and so should have enough eskies to last me for a while.

thepartsbox.com do a 1/24 resin esky.  I think I have one of them somewhere as well.

You might be surprised what you can buy.

Oddest I have would probably be a 1/24 resin toilet, urinal and sink set.

From Wikipedia.

Esky is an Australian brand of portable coolers. The term "esky" is also commonly used in Australia to generically refer to portable coolers or ice boxes and is part of the Australian vernacular, in place of words like "cooler" or "cooler box" and the New Zealand "chully bun". The term derives from the word Eskimo.
