Another interesting odd-ball vehicle that I had never thought would be reproduced as a kit -and I'm glad that it was. Looks good. My list is getting a little long...

Hi, Frank. It was produced before by AMK (or AMG, I'm not sure) but the price was way too high. Hobby Boss has the ability to "detect" an to put on the market those "long awaited" kits, it seems. Good for them! There are two versions of this kit, btw: the Daimler produced (reviewed here) and the Steyr produced one. And yes, it's a good and affordable kit.

Hi, Lou!

The prices are usually at the same level with ICM ones, but Hobby Boss offers considerable less detail. On the other hand, if you need a fast build, HB shall be your choice!
Cheers!

Hobby Fan only did the M35 gun truck. Are you mixing that up with the MP here?

Timothy, that was a price comparison, not a model comparison. The question was what price level have Hobby Boss kits.

Shell, it's almost identical, safe for the light guards and tool boxes underside. And I see some extra small PE on my fret that don't apply to my kit. It could be that they are just generic add-ons; some rivet heads of a sort - I'm not sure. Steyr would have been my first choice also, but it had out of stock / restocking status by my supplier and I decided not to wait...
