Thanks fir the review. Unfortunatly Pascal's build would indicate Panda still have issues with the suspension, similar to their M-ATV

Thanks for review, purchased and received mine recently.
Found what sounds like an another printing error: they talk about a sprue ' J ', which is not in the box for anybody and not anywhere in intruction drawings.
Final count is 14 of opaque sprues.
This " J "sprue looks like to be used on a other model of panda (35007 – M-ATV MRAP with CROWS II RWS

Here's a link to my building. This model is very difficult to build. It's a shame, because the Cougar 4x4 is a very interesting type.
All openings, square or round, are not the correct size. Everything must be drilled and cut. After gluing the interior, not vrcní to fit on the bottom part of the body.
I recommend not to build according to instructions, but his own mind.
Good luck and especially patience with this model.

This was my first Panda-Hobby kit to build and I am far from impressed. Maybe I got a bad mold or something but none of the parts fit. All the round openings have to be drilled larger and most edges sanded down just to get a semi decent fit. I am struggling not to just box it up and put it on the shelf for another day but I am over half way done so just have to tough it out I guess but personally I would hesitate before I buy another Panda-Hobby kit.
