The LVTE-1 Potato Digger has been a Holy Grail kit for me ever since seeing "The Boys In Company C" and "Apocalypse Now" in my youth.

This is fantastic news!

Was hoping against hope AFV Club would give us the LVTE-1 or at least the promised "How 6".. And have been keeping an eye on 3D in Scale (I think that's their name) ever since they announced a LVTE-1 conversion a couple of years ago...

Thereafter, it would be great to see a new tool LVTP-5 as well, with an interior, of course

And now, we get both in glorious styrene!!!!!!!

Thanks Kylie!!!!!

With Regards and Aloha,

Does anyone know if there is an interior for this kit or is it going to be similar to the old afv club kit

I'll be adding these to my stash as well. Of course this happens after I purchase the resin conversion for an LVTH6A1! Guess I'll need more sets of track and to hang back to see if anyone produces the interior for these monsters.

according to http://www.moxing.net/2018/0403/8884.html with a google translated page. And, it is from Amusing hobby, too.

I'm keen on the potato digger for sure.
