  1. This is looking much better. Good set of links to be starting with. Re the HMMWVs in Scale link: Two companies have announced MRAPs in 1:35. Panda and Kinetic, both new makers. I don’t think either is available in stores yet, but the CAD views are rather impressive. The two are different toolings, not just reboxed.
