D Toys Release US Modern AFV Antennae and Mount Set and FBCB/BFT Set

Posted by Minuteman1636 on September 2, 2013 at 2:40 PM Comments comments (1)

D Toys has released two new sets DT35-66 and DT35-67.

DT35-66 US Modern FBCB/BFT set


DT35-67 US Modern AFV Antennae and Mount set


First I want to say that it is always a good day when we have more HMMWV kits or related accessory sets produced.

Overall, the detail looks good. The internal mount for the FBCB2/BFT components is not the current configuration being installed in US HMMWV but it is still usable due to it still being in use. The antennae bases look superb and I'm anxious to get some for my projects.~ Brent

M998 TOW Missile Launcher Kit From KIM's PLA Model

Posted by Minuteman1636 on December 27, 2010 at 1:02 AM Comments comments (0)

I bought a kit off of ebay for my HMMWV collection. It is titled M998 TOW Missile Launcher which is an incorrect title. The kit should have been titled M996 TOW Missile Carrier.

 

The kit is/was manufactured in South Korea. Check out a couple of box top photos on the KIM's PLA Model page. I will take photos of the kit contents and provide additional information at a later date.
