One can only hope they improved their resin moulding quality. I remember the older kits which were a real pain to work with, especially when seeing their price point... I remember their older Tatra 813 KOLOS which I head to scratch aboput 40-50% due to their bad quality and even the newer P-40 trailer had flaws when released... The subjects are very cool without a doubt... but expect some work here to make them presentable!

Agree completely. And not just MMK but other brands too should pay far, far more attention to quality control. For the price many companies are asking for some kits, we should have at least a correct product not marred by bubbles, warped parts, shrinkage and so on. If other serious companies (Model Victoria or Brach Model spring to mind) can produce the marvels they do, others should make an effort to upgrade their quality, specially when many of these are not newcomers to the busines.

Lots of interesting kits. Does anyone have experience with construction of other MMK offerings like PANTHERS, PANDUR and TATRA 815 SOT. They seem to be very interesting.

As said before: I built their Tatra 813 KOLOS (about 15 years old by now) and their P-40 Trailer (about 10 years old now) and they both had their flaws, the Tatra many more than the trailer: warping, flash, bubbles and so on... The kits CAN be built into nice models but you need to expect quite some work and patience on them. So my advise is: get them, if you really (I mean REALLY) want to have them , otherwise don't bother, because you will probably never built them up due to all the work that needs to go in there.

I have to say on the other side, that I haven't had a real look onto some of their more recent kits, I'm speaking here from my general expierence with their models (having several of them).

Very cool these additions are coming out!

I can’t hrlp to wonder if a kit maker would get a better return on their investment if they would first come out with updated/current versions of the HEMTT and maybe current LMTV to gowith these.

Well Trumpeter just came out with their improved A2 HEMTT a few months back, which IS a vast improvement over the very old Italeri offering. It seems Oshkosh's move to the HEMTT A4 almost took the model industry by surprise.

I am sure it will come eventually. However Trumpeter needs to sell a few more A2's to pay for the molds and then maybe they will offer the A4. (I would not hold my breath.)

I suspect next up will be the 10x10 PLS (finally) which will then give you a closer to correct cab and engine so we poor modelers can then reverse engineer a A4 HEMTT conversion.

(I would not mind someone doing a resin conversion to build the A3 electric hybrid HEMTT but I am fairly sure that will never happen. Just gonna have to scratch build that one!)
