Now they have an FL-10 turret, I wonder how long before we see an AMX-13 light tank from Hobbyboss to replace the ancient Heller offering?  Once that happens it opens other possibilities in the AMX-13 family as well.

One wonders if they'll consider the SK-105 Kuraissier.

It'd be interesting but if I was running Hobbyboss, I'd make sure I'd fully exploited the moulding as much as possible - AMX-13/75, AMX-13/90, AMX-13/105, AMX-13 DCA, AMX-13 VTT, AMX-13 Mk61, etc., etc.  THEN, I'd start on the Kuraissier and that would lead into the Steyr APC series...   ;)

While it is not the HobbyBoss kit,  this 1/72nd scale Zvezda Su-50 (T-50) built by Waldemar Pupar does provide you with some images of the box art camouflage scheme at this link on ARC: http://www.arcair.com/Gal12/11601-11700/gal11699-Su-50-Pupar/00.shtm

 Hate to bring your fellows back down to Earth...but when I saw this

  Sd. Kfz 254



 I had to give a shout-out. As far as I know, almost the only wheel-and-track combo
 ever to see even limited service. ( Not quite as cool looking as teh Shofield (Sp?) wheel-and track
 from New Zealand, but still...Whoo! )

I have one of these in my stash now...thinking of doing it as a civilian African safari vehicle.

there was the earlier, smaller ADMK wheel'n'track but no-one does a model of that :icon_nif:

That Saurer Sd. Kfz 254 would go well with the Citroen halftracks on the Gobi Desert expeditions :) :D

The "onions" in the exhausts look a little odd to me.

The Jumo 004 could move the exhaust "onion" forward or backwards (quite a bit) as form of a thrust adjustment; it was basically the first "variable exhaust" jet nozzle.

Err, guys...its a Me262A-1b which was powered with BMW 003 engines.

Here's some more kit details:











Kit is due out in August.

One interesting feature is the optional metal nose gear cabin – this also acts as a nose weight to stop this kit being a “tail sitter”.
