If the Panda kit is anything like the Cougar/MATV then the AFV Club kit will be far superior.

Definitely will be getting this one.

But decals must've been made by the Hobby Boss/Trumpeter guy.... TRAILER "COMMECTOR"

This model was sent to us by AFV Club direct, and I do not believe it is currently available.

No one, including Ebay vendors have the kit available yet.

Shame that the kit is missing the little bottle under the rear stairs that contains the red ink for the marking system and that spelling error, commector !
