Listed for release in May is the Hobby Boss kit on the highly mobile, off-road vehicle developed during the early 1980s.
The original Chenowth military model was the two-seat Fast Attack Vehicle (FAV). It was produced during the early 1980s for the US Army. The FAV is essentially a buggy -- combining low weight, high speed and good cross-country mobility. It featured a high-strength tubular frame with roll cage. Light armor could be added as required. The FAV was deployed for hit-and-run style raids and scouting missions.

Hobby Boss will release the kit as Delta Force FAV (82406).

It was already discussed in detail here. It is not really a Delta Force FAV, not really sure what it is supposed to be. The CAD looks more like the modern Portuguese Army FAV. It doesn't really resemble the original US Army FAV tested by 7ID in the late '80s. The Hobby Boss one has a different overall look to it; it has the side bins, fenders over the wheels, etc., etc...

It is a pity that the kit from Hobbyfan still remains closest to the original.
