This seems to be a SF turret version. Live Resin did that one as an upgrade for Panda kit. link Mario

I've all but stopped building but it looks like I'll have to sell my Panda kit if I haven't done so already and pick this one up. Still looks like it needs radio and intercom equipment though. This looks like it would make for an interesting build.

MikeyBugs95 Great find on the ATV with minigun turret! This is on my wish list for Christmas. And, Legends do the minigun turret, too. A match made in heaven!

The box art for this is out, and it is great. I also found an interesting little snippet from Ryefield about pending releases as posted on a Chinese site, with google translate: “RYE FIELD MODEL today released the M-ATV's seal, also from JASON, as always. The M-ATV in the picture is parked, the hood is open, and the interior of the cabin is full, and the details are very rich. It is worth mentioning that, in the original text of the wheat field, "the 32nd product of the wheat field model and its surrounding products are coming soon", it is also possible to develop peripheral products matching this M-ATV. In addition, from the reply of the wheat field, it is possible to officially announce the pre-sale of the 5020 Sheridan M551 A1/A2 (TTS) tank in the wheat field tomorrow. It is only about one month after the release of the time and the overseas release, which is basically in line with the time difference.” I can only speculate as to what “develop peripheral products matching this M-ATV” may mean... maybe more current US vehicles?

"Peripheral products" looks to refer to Rye Field taking a leaf out of Meng's book and releasing resin accessories to complement their M-ATV: Radio/comms set: LINK Sagged wheels: LINK

Looking back at it, the kit also looks like it'll include a basic VIC-3 set. I don't know how good it'll turn out in plastic though, but they did include it.

If you want an accurate color guide (and plumbing) for the engine, look no father than my M-ATV reference photos. Still with all the interior shots, undercarriage, etc...

Regarding the wheel set, does anyone know if the M-ATV employs "run flat" tires? I ask because one of the wheels set is shown as a flat. Sorry of this has already been discussed.
