I think all we've seen before is a line drawing? Box art shows it to be a late version.

Can't see your linked pic but is this the same image shown two years ago in their catalogue?

I was trying to link to the actual image, but that is the correct page.

Also seen, box art for the ASLAV-PC Ph III.

Hi guys
This seems like the Grizzly kit. Picture posted but took long time before it showed up. I was waiting a long time for that kit. I managed to chat with the fellow who did the box art not too long ago, wondering did he render box art for the Husky? He mentioned to me that Trumpeter did not request that yet??? So it is to my guess we may be waiting for a while longer.

Not sure if was posted yet and maybe its old news but here is a picture of the boxart from the Trumpy Husky. I am sure some of you can chime in on its accuracy.

Thanks Jeff,

This is interesting as it now appears there will be two Husky kits from Trumpeter.

#1503...the early/mid version as shown in the link you posted. The box art looks good except for the .50 Cal mounted on the pintle. Not a big issue for the directional tires to be mounted on the opposite sides. However, the Vehicle Techs look far too clean and far too happy.

#1506...the late version with the marine drive removed, Bison mirror mounts, and the XML tires mounted.


It makes sense since the upgrade parts are already available in the late Grizzly and Cougar kits.

I think I've only seen the 30 cal mounted, and most times, nothing at all. But, the mount could support a 50, right?

Wonder if it will come with an engine sprue per the boxart?

Ya, the mount on the Husky is the same as the M113 MG mount so a .50 could be mounted with the correct pintle/cradle.

I think the engine will be included as a white metal casting.
