1/35 South African Rooikat.


At first, I thought this was a cruel, late April Fool's joke...then I did a little searching.

Armorama has it listed as a Trumpeter kit, with a test shot: http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=News&file=article&sid=22132

Also found this site: http://spruenews.blogspot.com/2016/04/trumpeter-rooikat.html

Needless to say, yes, I will be getting one of these. I love wheeled AFVs!


MOD EDIT: Fixed the first link!  ;)

Thanks!

So...who do I need to thank for buying the Baxmods or Aerografix Rooikat and starting on it?  That's the only possible explanation for this being kitted in plastic.

I would just like to take a moment to reflect on the 1/35 Resin version I already have...you can thank me later for this investment trigger.

I thank'ee, Greg.  Someone had to take the hit unfortunately and I'm glad it wasn't me.

I look forward to the release of this kit.  I'm in the market for at least two or three of them.

I will definitely be buying one though whether it will ever be built or even started is open to debate, would look great as a RAAC 2 CAV vehicle in Iraq or Afghanistan for anyone who actually completes kits.
