I built their 1/350 scale 688I Los Angles Attack Sub and the molding on it was sublime. Fit was very good on it and the issue I did have it was partly my own fault.

Hopefully their M109A6 Paladin will be nice. As stated, thier other products are pretty nice.

Just a note though, they are confused on the M109 track sets. The T154 track is only used on M109A6 paladin howitzers and their associated M992A2 ammo carriers. The T136 track was used on M108 through M109A5 howitzers and the M992 and M992A1 ammo carriers. The T154 can be retrofitted to earlier howitzers and ammo carriers, but it was not used on them in US Army service.

I think Italeri's track looks more like the T-154. Course, it could just be me.

They have an interesting range of upcoming releases which will hopefully be up to expectations. Also I know this is just a pre-production CAD image, but does the 50 Cal on the back of the Maxx Pro box have the MK19s cover on it?

Thanks for posting Michael

FYI, Riich Models is part of, or a subsidiary or a separate company of Bronco. If you look at the address on each company's kit boxes, they are the same.

How good can the company be if they can't get the proper markings on a little kitty cat?
Maybe it's supposed to be a small zebra?
