After announcing their M-ATV kit, Rye Field decided to offer some resin upgrades for their kit... communication equipment and sagged wheels.
An on-line shop displays a preorder for two additional items from Rye Field.

1001 - M-ATV 16.0XR20 Resin Wheel
for RM-5032 - M-ATV (MRAP All Terrain Vehicle) M1240A1
Set includes 4 resin wheels and 1 flat tire.

1002 - MRAP Radio Set (Resin Kit)
for RM-5032 - M-ATV (MRAP All Terrain Vehicle) M1240A1

Good times for modelers indeed...

I have mixed feelings about the radio set. They really should have included a basic - maybe less detailed - radio set made in styrene in the kit. On the other hand this set can be used with many other kits, so it'll be good to have it available separately. One can just hope it won't be as expensive as e.g. Meng resin sets.

The radios are under £10 on Hobby Easy right now, so not badly priced in the grand scheme of things. There's a lot of radio in that set.

I wonder how these radios compare to some of the ones already out there like the ones from the ProArt MATV set and the 3D printed ones. I honestly would like to see a comparison done.

I would like to see them make new 1/35 resin turrets like Leonardo's RiWP turret wit 30mm, M240, and a rocket, missile, or Stinger pod....and corner smoke grenade launchers. The radios are very welcome as radios get outdated.

As the ProArt ones are virtually impossible to get, that might be wishful thinking, or a least a waste of time for most of us

They should have offered these as styrene parts and saved their customers an arm and a leg. I'd feel fleeced if I had to buy these just to finish the kit properly.
