I've always liked this little tank (tankette?), maybe this will be the kit I buy

To be precise, here in germany we call it a Luftlandewaffenträger which means Airborne Weapons Carrier.

Am i wrong if this version looks close to the Wiesel used in Afghanistan? Same tracks no?

Just hope AFV changed their over stiff PE parts!

Olivier, I was thinking the same thing (the PE on the original Wiesels and Scimitars/Scorpions was a PITA), but if you look at this review, it seems the PE is now brass, not steel as before. http://www.armorama.co.uk/review/10822 Cheers, Christophe

And did they move the fold lines to the OTHER side of the part? It has been a LONG while since I built both mine, but I seem to remember that the folding lines on the muffler covers were on the outside and being steel, when I went to refold them back the correct way it snapped. The Afghan versions w the new tracks are interesting, I might have to take another swing at one of these. M
