Traditionally a seller of paints and accessories or at most a reseller of other's kits, it seems AK is going to release some of their own kits starting with some 1/35 Toyota FJ43 Land Cruisers:

Some real world inspiration perhaps:

For some reason I picture one with either a RBS70 or Mistral MANPADS mounted in the rear:

Well, if they are*, that's going to save me a lot of work on my Italeri BJ44! :D


[*: I can't find anything about them on their site, though. ???]

Old LandCruiser? In plastic? 8) *excited-giggling*

Looks like they also re-boxed the Dragon Sd.Kfz. 234 Puma. AIUI, these were going for top dollar lately. 60 EUR isn't exactly cheap either, but I think I paid upwards of 50 EUR for the first release a dozen or so years ago. (Hint to AK: Re-box the M16 GMC next!  ;))

Some real world inspiration perhaps:





Cool camo!
The footrests for the bed are a neat idea.

My idiot brain: Let's suggest another halftrack!
My idiot brain (a little more cautious): Let's google that first.

Nice!

That seems to be an Iranian mod.
