Today I started build two models of the M-ATV. One Panda Models and a Kinetic.


First I started with a staff of frame and chassis Panda model. At first look, the model is very detailing, perhaps in some cases very much. Looks like a good model.
For less advanced modellers, construction can be problematic. The model contains a large amount of PE parts, which are more advanced and designed very experienced modelers and professionals.
During the construction of the chassis I found some shortcomings in instruction sheets. Missing or incorrectly labeled parts. I used wheels set from my produce RMA 35224.

Hi Milo,

Could you please post up your findings on the errors with the instructions. I think it would help all us builders of this kit.

Regards

I'm waiting for RPG nets ! I hope this will be built too, because I don't know how to make them at all.

Which one would you rate better and more accurate: Panda or Kinetic?

Having the Kinetic kit, and seen a number of build-logs I'm pretty sure that the Kinetic one is a bit easier to build, but is overscaled, closer to 1/32 than 1/35.
Its overall details are also on the soft side...
I should say go for the Panda kit.

Thanks!
Can anyone confirm Panda is more accurate and true-to-scale?
