Hi, I came across such an announcement. Does anyone know if this is a completely new model, new forms because there is no information? Is it rather Kangnam? Looking at the price, however, I think that these are Kangnam forms, and only the decals are new.

Hello Darkin,

I understand it to be a rebox of Hap Dong, but have also seen elsewhere on the net that the moulds had been refurbished. So who knows. Most likely a straight rebox. Which will be a disappointment if true. But hay, look at the opportunity to create a silk purse out of a sow’s ear!

It does open up the possibility of correction sets, details, or even an opposition offering of a new tooled kit! Live in hope!

More than likely we'll see it from AFV Club before anyone else. (virtual foot stop)
