Will be interesting to see these two kits, once released, side by side. Both manufacturers put out good kits, so I’m guessing any differences will be minor and may come down to price. Happy days

Thanks for the link, Kylie. The inclusion of the instructor’s seat is a nice touch.

If yours is the one from AEF Designs consider yourself lucky.

And, to accompany this, Def Models are to do a Nag Mash II conversion. Similar to the Blast offering, I guess.

I expect the AFV Club will have the higher parts count, but detail and accuracy between them will be the same.

Ha!

I'll just try to make variations, with/without mine-rollers or something.

The link (for me) only goes to the AFVC notice. Am I to understand Meng has also announced a 6B-Gal? Given the choice, I would go Meng, most likely a better build. I have the Meng Gal-Batash in line, and I'm actually looking forward to it, going a little blind building AFV Club's M60A1 now.
And of course I recently finished a build of a 6B-Gal, a kit-bash using the Legends instructor's chair and Nochri adapter. It figures....

Edit: Never mind, I just Googled it. I would be much more inclined to build the Meng kit.

Probably going to with AFV Clubs. As good as Meng kits are, there plastic tends to be clunky and harder to work with, while AFV is usually more crisp and softer. We'll see the final results soon enough

personnaly i prefers the individuals tracks links that are in the Meng kits.
I don't like the rubber one part track.
