The latest photo is of the first Hägglund demo 9030 built to show the Norwegians how the vehicle would look like.

Btw, what type of tracks is the kit going to have, rubber band, individual, or link & length?

Even though this kind of vehicle wouldn't benefit that much from indi tracks as they don't sag much, if at all, but I'd personally greatly appreciate the inclusion of styrene tracks, individual or link & length.

The CV90 use Bradley tracks so no matter what tracks the kit will come with you allready have AM tracks from both AFV Club and Friul Modellismo.

(thinkin' of the Hobby Boss AAVP7...Isn't Trumpeter part of the same concern as HB?)

Since the 9040 don't have ant return rollers there is quite a bit of sag but you don't see it behind the skirts

Here you can see the first, second and third roadwheel on the left hand side of a CV9040A

Nice photo! I've just bought Academy CV9040 off of Ebay yesterday and mine should arrive in 10 days or so. Looking forward to it.

I'm building one for an IPMS review.

Great kit, it contains perhaps the smallest injected parts I've ever seen!

One thing i can;t figure out is what causes the wear pattern on the rim of the wheel?

See the above model, he has represented it well, I've also seen it in shots of the real IFV.

Anyone know the answer?

The wheels are made of aluminum and the paint don't stick well to aluminum.

It’s just wear and tear from small stones and gravel.

So Erik's review states that
"missing from the turret is the machine gun barrel. I belive academy has worked from images of parked vehicles, and these have the machine gun removed. But when the gun is mounted the barrel protrudes a bit outside the vehicle. In 1/35th scale I think almost a centimetre. The machine gun used on the 9040B is the Kulspruta m/39, which is a variant of the Browning .30.
The bad thing is that the berforated jacket around the barrel is different. The standard browning has circular holes, the Ksp m/39 has elongated holes."

What does this Kulspruta M/39 look like? My google search turned up nothing. Anyone has photos of this? Frenchy?
