Someting was familiar with this vehicle so I had to check. HobbyBoss has a kit of the ZBD-04. The differences between the 04 and the 04A seems to be: "The ZBD-04A (industrial designation WZ502G, sometimes referred to as ZBD-08) is an improved variant that sacrifices amphibious performance for better armor protection; add-on armor can be fitted, and the frontal arc can withstand 30 mm rounds along with side skirts added. Although the vehicle is still amphibious, able to propel itself by its tracks to ford lakes and rivers, it lacks waterjets and can no longer operate in open sea" and " On the original ZBD-04, the commander has a day sight and an image-intensifying night sight. On the ZBD-04A, commander has been upgraded to an independent thermal sight that can rotate 360 degrees." CITV for those who like abbreviations Source: LINK / Robin

The reason you can't find them is probably because on FB they go under the name of their aircraft-producing brand, Kitty Hawk. LINK
