Finally two new parts: spare wheel holder and main part of the bridge.

Nice, but I'm still waiting for your "PTS-M Russian Tracked Amphibious Truck" which has been listed as "coming soon" for many months now...

Any idea of the PTS-M release date? Or has it been cancelled?

Cheers,

Christophe

as wrote..it will be available, but not for open market, just for the TMM buyers

PTS-M comes in next month. It was ready, but I disliked and destroyed the body :-)

Looks great!
Two questions:

1) I noticed the tires on the axles are black suggesting they are rubber, and the spare is the same white resin as the rest of the vehicle. Are the tires rubber? I prefer resin as it doesn't shrink and split/crack over time.

2) The vignette is awesome, and I was wondering if the bridge itself will be available as a seperate kit to allow further options for modelers?

Excellent news Gabor! Looks like I need to start saving for one of these as well. You need to quit making so many nice kits man or a lot of us are going to go broke
