Italeri offers another reboxing of an older kit with the release of the M113 ACAV, a popular subject. Here is a look at what is offered in the box.

It looks like some parts are from Academy's M113...

Yes, all the ACAV parts come from the Academy kit. They should have just reboxed the Academy M113A1 ACAV kit as the Italeri M113 sucks.

Darren, thanks for getting this up and running.

I was going to say the same thing about the Italeri kit but felt constrained to merely frown.

Oh, those tracks. Oh, those wheels...You're right Gino, why do they even bother? Guess it's for those builders who still like the Tamiya T-62...
