It looks like Italeri kit. Hobby Craft were even stupid enough to repeat the Italery typo - on Italeri box the model was called "COMMANDO HUM-V", while it should be "COMMAND HMMWV". The instructions inside the box however have the correct name on them. And Hobby Craft made it "Humvee Commando "Special Ops""... LOL!!!!
