Two more armoured vehicles are on the way from Hobby Boss with one World War 2 and one modern.
Hobby Boss has announced two new AFV’s being added to their catalogue. First is the World War 2 German Sd.Kfz.221 early variant, and the second is the Swedish CV9030. Both kits are slated for a December 2013 release, just in time to be put on the Christmas wish list.

83813 – German Le.Pz.Sp.Wg.(Sd.Kfz.221) Leichter Panzersphawagen Early
83822 – Swedish CV9030 IFV

There seems to be two general missconceptions regarding this "Swedish" CV9030 which probably needs to be clarified. First of all, the CV9030 is not used by Sweden, it is an export model only. Secondly, Hobbyboss themselves have built up the model and painted it in what looks like Finnish splinter cammo. However, Finnish vehicles have a raised roof over the rear compartment, the model does not. The kit is most suitable for a Norwegian CV9030N. Granted, the first few test/protoype vehicles provided to Norway were painted in splinter cammo, but the production versions were all green, so perhaps this is causing some confusion as well. Very, very welcome kit nontheless! :-)

I agree with Sven. I hope they change the label to something more correct to avoid future confusion among modellers.
