I just bought the M163 kit from Academy and I'm looking for update sets.
I know Eduard has two sets for the Italeri kit (exterior and interior) and one set for the Academy kit (exterior).
What I like to know is,
- Are there any other sets available?
- Is the interior kit for the Italeri kit also usable for the Academy kit (the turret part is different)

I am not certain but I believe one of the resin companies have come out with an interior. I tlooked pretty good from the pics I saw and included things like the ammo drum under the turret. Go to Greatmodels web site and search by m163 you should be able to find it.

Verlinden makes em: ...or I should say "made them". I think they are discontinued. May take a bit to locate them.

I knew about those kits but didn't mention them because they're all kits to convert a M113 into a M163 and I have a kit of the M163 already.
The two kits from Verlinden are indeed OOP :-)
The kit from Hobby Fan is very expensive.
