All I have seen is the proposed Riich Model version, which still has no release date.




I haven't heard anything from Kinetic on a MaxxPro

Same thing with Kinetic... just a drawing!



I have a feeling these announcements were made to counter each other.. when in fact these were at the very early stages of development. Same thing with MENG announcing the T-90 to counter Zvezda's kit at the time.. and then releasing all these other kits.

Just an opinion, of course... I hope I'm wrong and we actually see them very soon

Hi Marc,

on last years Nuremberg show, Kinetic showed me the complete CAD drawings for the MaxxPro. A few monthe later, they requested some more detail pics. As for Riich, I heard that they
will release some teasers to test the market, but I have no knowledge about how far the tooling is.

The MaxPro MRAP tooling is undergo, it will be released after the DOHER/ROCHER IDF M109. With the additional experience from the RG-31, we have confidence that we can meet the demand from our customer.

In addition, a newly retooled M-ATV for USMC will also rolling out in 2013 time frame.

The only thing I would request from Kinetic is that the Rhino device like the one from Riich.Models and Legend be included...

A retooled M-ATV too? Will the retooling correct the scale error?

Looking forward to the Kinetic Maxxpro. Their RG-31 is going together very nicely for me.


Roughtly October of last year, Riich Models posted on their Facebook site that the plan was to have the Maxxpro and Paladin out by the end of the year. Around December, that post disappeared. They really haven't posted much else on their FB since then, so I have no idea about theirs.

Hi Raymond, are you set for references for that other MRAP vehicle we discussed?

Hey Raymond,

I've been watching the MaxxPro photos on the facebook page. Looks like it's coming along well! Any guesses on when we'll see a firm release date?

Thanks,

Adam
