Well we have one Husky available, and now the second offering is on route in the form of a Panda offering. The Husky Mk III from Panda is to be released at the end of April.
The Husky Mk II Vehicle Mounted Mine Detector cannot be said to be a beauty to behold, but it is so different that it attracts the eye. This 1/35th scale offering from Panda will soon be with us in April, and letís be honest, choice is good. Details on the contents are not available, but it does include photo etched parts.

Yes seems weird to have that part missing. There is also the interrogator arm version too that would be good to have as an option in box.

I hate to go off-topic from the thread but if anyone has detailed pictures of the radar and arm units and detailed measurements I can probably conjure a set up in a couple of days.

I expect versions with the attributes you talk about to follow.

Yes maybe they do that, but it is not nice to do like that... As then you can release that version directly... But i would buy it but it's very ugly to do like that...

Not ugly at all, but good business. It makes more sense for them to release different version and make more money off one set of molds. They are in business to make money, not cater to modelers. You could be patient and wait to see what comes out, or jump out and buy each one when it is released, up to you.

Or they could atleast sell it like accessories when they release the kit... If you compare to buy a BMW car they dont release different options after each other, they have that directly when they release it that you can pick from and they do business too... It's my opinion and i think many think like me... But i understand and respect your opinion too.. But i dont like how they do it

[/quote] That would be nice but to do the radar to sell it on shapeways i dont think is a good idea as their way to set prices is ridicoulus.. That would be so expensive as it's a so big pieace... But i would like to have it also and the arm...

Given the current prices if they include the ground radat or the robo-arm the price will catapult, more or less, thus pushing away anyone who wants a pure Husky. To separate the releases is much wiser in this regard. The sad think is that there are few companies that follow that logic and I think there is a chance to be left without more options. Other problem is the great time span between releases - just keeping us on the edge for months gives enought time to the AM-guys to step up, which can easely eat the pie of the company. MiniArt are setting the example here with their T-44 release - two versions within two months or so. That's the spirit that I enourage. Oh, and as I just saw that the news release doesn't ahow all the photographs, this kit is supposed to come with Rhino and Duke anti-IED devices. Rhino on a Husky...
