Does it come with the double V hull or the usual old hull?

To be honest, I am not convinced with this kit. The dislike mis-sing studs for Slat armor on turrat and the missins add-on armor on the rear ramp. I also wonder if they replicated the driver Enhancement Kit in all its complexity or just the front mounting? The position of the main gun is wrong, it should be 45°. Another poor kit from Panda, I rather put my money into the AFV Club release.

Very impressive, Jason!

Amazing that Panda created a model of the M1296 in a short amount of time.

I will be doing the build review when I receive the kit from Jim and Darren.

Otherwise, Jason, you did an awesome job.

VERY NICE, Jason! I'm going to have to hunt one of these up to add to the rest of my Strykers...

Very nice. I especially like the weathering of the tires

Really nice work. I like the way you did not over weather this model something that I think I do to much of on my projects. This is something I want to try more of thanks for showing this, it gives me a good baseline for weathering of my next model. Now if I could get my skills to your level of master.

Agree, very nice work. The stryker looks strange with this turret, I'm not yet accustomed to.

I'd say it came out more than just "quite good"

Looks awesome!
