Sigh!!  Much as I am, and have been for years, a Harrier enthusiast, that is a bit rich for my blood.

Because for some people, 1/24 just isn't big enough... ;D

I can already see putting all sorts of RWS's on this.  So, I'll need two or three of them.

The 6-wheeler will definitely get added to the stash. 

Who am I kidding? They'll ALL probably get added to the stash.

Leopard C1 MEXAS

This is the first Leopard 1 hull that Hobbyboss have tackled. Be interesting to see what becomes of it, as they are pretty decent at exploiting their tooling. Could it mean AEV, ARV, AVLB and other nation's MBT (Aussie AS-1?)

Indeed. And if they hadn't blocked me from the FB comments page, I could have let them know about this. Seems they aren't very good at taking constructive criticism.

In-Box Kit Review of the HobbyBoss (kit nr. 82406) 1:35th scale "Delta Force" FAV (Fast Attack Vehicle) at Modellversium.de

Not much in the kit which means you have to supply all of the baggage and weapons/weapons mounts.

They really, finally released this one?  I'll have to keep on the lookout for one or two to add to the stash.
