I was going to say Airfix, but their Jackal and Coyote are in 1/48th.

Why do all the latest crop of vehicles like this, always appear top-heavy ? Am I missing something ?

My guess is that that's a side-effect of mine-resistance efforts.

As an aside, in another thread (maybe here or another forum), I was looking at a manufacturer's catalogue someone had linked to, and I can buy these in 1/72 scale -- I just can't remember now where I saw that.

S&S Models offer a Jackal 1 DPV in 1/72 for £10.00
-- https://sandsmodels.com/product/172-jackal-1-dpv/  or

EagleNest3D offer a Supacat Jackal 1 HMWP in 1/72nd.

That S&S DPV acronym is new to me. I'm guessing 'Desert Patrol Vehicle' or some such.

The Supacat HMT 400 has been referred to as a 'High Mobility Weapons Platform' (as per EagleNest3D) or, more often, as having a 'Mobility Weapon-Mounted Installation Kit' - so Jackal MWMIK. Some sources call the S&S kit a 'Jackal WMIK' (which acronym belongs with the Land Rover).

Thanks Stephen, I had found the S&S ones, but I thought the ones I'd seen were injection and there wasn't just the Jackal.

Flory Models has a video unboxing/review of the MV-22 offering from Hobbyboss:

It still seems a bit pricey, but I think I'll have to get one, just to build it all folded up?

I was just about to post the same video llink.  :)

Yeah, kit has extra rotor parts to do the whole folded rotor thing in addition to displaying with all rotors in flight position.  Kind of neat but yes, also expensive.  If the price drops then I could be swayed to find a home for a pair of these kits.

NOPE!
KitLinx > HobbyBoss (81769)1:48 Bell-Boeing MV-22 Osprey

Quite expensive, isn't it, but, then, I've notice kit prices are on a fairly steep rise anyway, at the moment.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.
