Nice, but unfortunately the lower hull is still wrong - without the torsion bar offset... I had hoped that they would retool this part for new CV90 variants, but it was probably too much to expect from HB.

This will be a great release, I am glad that HB are taking the opportunity to capitalize on their CV90 kits. Take note, however, that the Norwegian CV9030 (which this kit depicts) is not the same as the Finnish and Swiss versions, since they have a raised roof area above the rear compartment. The Norwegian vehicle does not. Hopefully more export versions will follow. A Danish CV9035 would be most welcome as well, and the bgbv90 (recovery vehicle) in 1/35 would be pure bliss! :-) I can completely understand the frustration around the incorrect torsion bar positions, this was an unnecessary error by HB (and one they managed to make on several models, for example their Merkava kits). However, I doubt that the cost of new tooling will justify them fixing this issue. Personally, I think I can live with it, unless I had eyes fixed on long rods to allow me to see both sides of the vehicle at the same time, this is barely noticeable (albeit inaccurate).

A welcome release! I hope that the CV9035 shown at the February toy fair is not to far!

Nice to see these variants on the tried & true coming out. Great for modelers who want other options.
