Is there any hope Dragon will release this as a kit?

I have no inside knowledge, but my best guess is no. At least not a kit of the one they sold as a CyberHobby release. That one is all polystone and I don't think they will do any kits of the larger polystone stuff like the Pak 40.

I agree, anything that was poly probably will never be released in an injection molded plastic kit. I doubt the molds for those didn't last either. It's too bad because some of the polystone stuff was impressive and would have been better suited for the hobby if they did plastic right from the start.

I feel your pain. The only one I know of is Mike Stannard/Toyrific. It a bit on the high-end, I want to try to get one eventually. Actually, it would do in "morphing" some other things as well....

Anyway, that is all I got. Love to hear if I missed something?

PS - If you get Dragon to make a kit - I suggest going the extra bit and doing it with vynl or rubber tires - that feature on its own may make the kit a big success......

Thanks for the information, gentlemen.
I guess I'll build my own.

GAry,

I have one and its polystone. Its hasn't broken up yet but the wheel suspension doesn't hold itself up. Wheels are spreading outward. I'd hate to see if it had a flak gun on it. I will probably cut away the suspension and beef it up with metal. I also have a Mike Stannard trailer and it will hold up a ton. I recommend trying to get one of his trailers. Its a kit.

I also have one of Mikes trailers and agree it will hold a ton.
