Does this one have wing-folds included?

I could see adding one to my stash, but I'd need to source USMC decals for it. I've got a Revell Intruder that I picked up in Okinawa, but really, is one Intruder enough? I say no.

Canadian Army RG-31 boxing announced. Different turret and comms / EW from the initial US Army Mk III issued kit. I can say that Kinetic has had the input from a few pers who had 'intimate' access to the RL vehicle.

I was told by the owner of the nearest LMS I frequent, to expect a 1/72 injection C-17 from Kinetic.  This was after I was explaining to him my vacuform/resin (half Combat Models/half Anigrand) one I was about to start in the near future.

At least that means they haven't abandoned 1/72 just yet. Although I personally can't see why they chose a C -17. I'd rather have seen them scale down their Mirage 2000s or their IAI Kfir.  :uuu:

Some years back Panda was supposed to do a 1/72 C-17, and it even had a kit number listed.  Nothing ever came of it.  I can't see it myself.  For modelling purposes the kit is something of a bore.  They are all the same gray, with relevant national insignia,  usually toned down.

The only 1/48 kit I ever built was a, from memory, Revell P-40 Warhawk for my younger brother it was fun and looked good but didn't last long before our adopted mentally disturbed brother tried to make it fly....... ::)

Maybe that sad memory is the source of my hesitation ref 1/48.  I do have a FJ-4A Fury and a Seahawk in the stash but haven't started either.  Maybe I could just reserve the scale for my alternate RAN FAA Whiffs.

Israeli 109 - cool!  :) I want to build a diorama of that pic (can't find it at the moment, of course) of the guy who strung up a hammock between the muzzle brake and the turret and caught some Zs. Bad drill, I know (and after some Zs he probably caught some flak  ;D), but it was a funny pic.

We-ell, if the Kinetic kit's not too expensive when (if) it comes out, I may have to buy one & compare the two. ;)

Michael Benolkin has an in-box review of Kinetic's new 1:35th scale 4x4 MRAP AFV (kit number 61011) available for your viewing pleasure at CyberModeler. 



This is the vehicle that has been in the news of late as one of the "war surplus" items that are being acquired by many local law enforcement agencies for their special response units (aka SWAT).

There are some inner city places that get pretty rough but I think most are concerned with situations like the bank robbery shoot out in LA a few years ago that went on for hours. The two perps had AK-47s and incredible amounts of ammunition and enough body armor for a whole platoon.

And the SWAT teams stuck on the wrong side of the resulting traffic jam, saw a doco on it a few years ago.  From memory it was over within in minutes of SWAT getting there, every LAPD patrol vehicle has had an assault rifle on board since.

Is there a kit of this vehicle, the RCMP use a version for their armed confrontations --  A couple of years ago some kid holed himself up with a load of guns not far from where I live, this vehicle was used to ram its way through the front door of the house.  It's Canadian built and the first time I heard about it was from Barry (John Howling Mouse), he said he wanted to get one to go with his real Hummvee

Homeland Security mentality plays a part too. The whole "we have to be ready for the end of the world" way of thinking. I think the US military should mothball them out in the boneyard next to all those aircraft to use in the next low intensity war we get into. Police will get rid of them eventually when they figure out how expensive these vehicles are to operate.

We interrupt this discussion to bring you some important news from your moderating staff

To those that are interested in continuing the discussion on the comments following my post please consider starting a new discussion.  I was in no way intending for this to become a thread/topic hijack and the additional bit of information I added regarding the use of these vehicles by law enforcement agencies of the local (municipal) [ie: county/parish/provincial and state] and federal was not intended to launch or divert this topic from the subject of Kinetic Model kits product announcements and kit reviews of these kits that are available on-line.  That comment was added just to advise any potential purchaser of the Kinetic MRAP that it could be built for something other than a military subject.  With that being said, please, consider starting a new discussion topic on the subject of military vehicles in law enforcement or something similar before adding more to this thread on Kinetic Models. 

We now return you to your regular scheduled modeling. 

Thank you

1/48 AMX! Posted on Kinetic's Facebook page: LINK!



Yay, an injection-moulded AMX! Finally!  :D Oh, it's in 1/48.  :uuu: I just hope they're doing it in conjunction with Italeri. That might mean there's just a tiny little chance it might be scaled down to 1/72.
Cheers,

I have only ever built two 1/48 kits, a Revell S-55 with floats when I was in primary school and a P-40E for my younger brother when I was in my teens (was quite proud of that too but our other brother decided since it was an aeroplane it should fly).  Anyway with all these really cool kits coming out its getting harder and harder not to buy them and with two (three with my Tamiya Matilda) 1/48 kits in the stash, I may actually need to build one.

Too bad they're not scaling down their F-16XL or AMX :( Monogram's OOP F-16XL is worth its weight in gold (and in-production the resin conversion kit for Hasegawa not much cheaper), and AMX is not available at all.

Wonder if they orginally intended to have a 1:72 line but the two Vipers did not sell enough so they didn't make any others?

Thinking that would look good in ROC markings since the M.346 and Chung-Kup share the same basic engine (Honeywell - Formerly Garrett - F125).
