Due next month, and costing less than $44; for those interested.

Begs the question, which '113 variant next...

Haven't kept up but has the plastic been sorted out, is it a new mold or the Academy plastic w/ AFV Club label for the most part?

Been waiting a long time for this one! Hopefully the sales are good and they don't stop at just this, and go to the A2, and dare I dream maybe an M577, an M901, an M1064, a Fitter etc.

Dragon has made a nice living out of a base kit then add a sprue of this or that to make another variant. Maybe AFV will do the same. A M577 with an interior would be a nice follow up !

Here are some sprue shots: http://mmzone.co.kr/mms_tool/mt_view.php?mms_db_name=mmz_free&mms_cat=[%EB%AA%A8%ED%98%95]&no=361405.

Looks like not as many extras like old Academy M113 kits but the molding looks more crisp.

Seems they still didn't include the ramp pulley.

The ramp parts are on sprues, so apparently only the test shot build was incomplete.
