Hi Robert at this link is a created topic/post regarding a list of your available military vehicle walkaround. Can you provide a list of what walkarounds you have available? Happy modelling, Dariusz LINK

An other pathetic attemp of a model kit I guess... The original M-ATV from Panda is virtually unbuildable. Just received Rye Field Models' kit and it's a gem. Panda must improve or die.

I'd say that is a bit of an over exaggeration. The Panda MATV doesn't fall together like a Tamiya kit, but it is far from unbuildable. I have seen many other very nice examples of it as well. I agree that the Rye Field version is much better though. I am looking forward to the M1101 trailer as it is primarily pulled by HMMWVs.

Hopefully it comes with a new tooling? According to this link at least? LINK

New tooling for the new parts and the trailer, the parts that are the same as in previous kits have probably not been touched. / Robin

The SOCOM M-ATV looks different than the plain M-ATV version and it would take a few aftermarket accessories to make the plain M-ATV version into the SOCOM version. It's nice to see that this version came out. Perhaps there will be competition in the future. For sure, it should start the resin figure companies to start making figures for it.

Hi Nicolas, I know Panda is often disparaged for their "unbilldable" kits. I find this view somewhat misleading - and please don't take offense. I built their original M-ATV and was very happy with the end result. Sure it was difficult; but I liked the challenge. I am very pleased with the way it turned out. Some scratch building and PE brought up to competition level. Maybe I'm not as easily daunted, as I am predominantly a resin kit builder.But I really liked the kit... and I just ordered the Rye Fields model and I can't wait to build it too. You can see my Panda build here: LINK Cheers, - Mike
