It looks pretty nice and well detailed. I'll be looking forward to this one.

Looks nice. I like that more and more MRAP's are coming. Now we just need the AMPV from KMW, Eagle IV from MOWAG and Panther from Iveco

Looks very good! Being of moderate modelling skills, I like that they don't rely heavily on PE in the basic kit.

I hope they continue with M-ATV's.. and modern wheeled vehicles in general.

I hope I can manage to get one.. our new "Brotherhood" government seems to want to screw up everything, even what people can order from overseas. Oh well... it was nice while it lasted

AMPV comes from Y-MODELLE, Panther Iveco from MK Models but unfortunately both resin. Time to test our skills?

Would like them in something else than resin... Especially when the price at Y-modelle is 199 euro for the AMPV

More specifically 116 euros: http://www.sockelshop.de/catalog/ampv-resin-p-34916.html, but still expensive.

Firing ports. They should have been removed on any American vehicles post 2010, though I'm not sure how many of this variant were still even in service at that point.

On a side note, the one in Sean's post is a Canadian Army RG-31. A giveaway is the warning sticker on the rear door written in English and French. Here's another view :

Should be an easy fix with some clear Evergreen plastic card.

I am looking forward to this, I have some ideas for detailing.
