How are these "Wandering Earth" kits anyway? The 1/100 Ore Cargo Truck is pretty expensive, but then again, it is 15 inches long.

These MENG "Wanderng Earth" semi truck kits actually look kind of toyish. I would assume that the built-up web photos are raw plastic and not painted.

Do they have good MENG fit quality and details, clear windows, decals, etc.?

The kit stems from the new Chinese Sci-Fi movie " The Wandering Earth"

I can't help thinking it would be the perfect companion for another kit on my wish list:

I can see this, with some MAIM figures or even Machinen Krieger.

Looks like somebody crossed a Stryker with a Landmaster from Damnation Alley.

I think it may also come in 1/100 scale.

It's perhaps one of the most futuristic Sci-Fi plastic vehicle kits on market. Having a 10 wheel drive rover is pretty cool!

Meng has slated this one for release, this year. While not technically considered "armor" it is in 1:35 and will make it into my stash.



Hi, Matt!

Maybe I'm nuts, but it sure looks "armored" to me... WHATTA BEAST!!!
