I had a GI Joe Jeep when I was a kid in the '60s & always was tempted to go on eBay so this is a welcome surprise. Ordered mine today & will let you know what its like once it arrives later this month. Clark is already working on a board for it.

That link isn't any good. I got to the website with the link posted at RCU and tried to order one of these but can't seem to get the job done. Are they in stock and ready for sale right now? I registered at their website but everytime I try to checkout it asks me to log in and won't accept my information, even though I'm already logged in. I might have to send them an email or something.

They just went on presale with shipping supposedly 4/21. I'm buying through a local Taobao store I got my HG Hummer from. Have no idea when FMS' store will ship but also states 4/21.

I updated the link so it now works. Thanks for letting me know. :thumbup:

In ordered one, too, through FMS at the link, and they say it will ship April 21st. Naturally I'll post the results for y'all. 8)

Something looks odd about it. Taken me a few looks but the windscreen is too tall, roof looks off also.

I just ordered one as well. If it turns out that some of the details ARE off, I plan to replace those parts from the Dragon kit; (or possibly, transplant the entire Dragon body onto this working chassis).

Agreed. Does look a bit taller than it should but doubt my 5 year old will care much about the difference. :haha:

9 days before shipment. Have a few 1/6 figures arriving next week to do this justice while out crawling. Its amazing how cheap one can find these on Taobao's secondhand sellers site. ;)

Not sure if its for FMS or another brand but understand a 1/6 Schwimmwagon is in the works.

FMS appears to have a hit on their hands after seeing the initial run sold out during pre-sale. 8O

The first batch of 1000 pcs MB Scaler will be sold out soon after only two-day presale!! The last 30 pcs are still available at:
https://www.fmsmodel.com/product/rochob ... caler/1182 (Expected delivery date: April 21st, 2020)

Or you will wait for the next batch at the end of May. Come and Order now!!!

I don't know but would presume so & recommend contacting FMS.

I live in China so am getting mine from one of their local dealers on Taobao. FMS claims they sold out of their first run so next shipments will be late May.

You run the risk of becoming a shipping agent for those outside the Taubau area !!!

Here's the first unboxing video on the new ROCHobby 1941 MB. Packaging very similar to the HG 1/10 Hummer I have. Am impressed so far. :thumbup: :thumbup:

They say mine will ship tomorrow, so we'll see what happens. I'll be sure to do a box opening video when I get it.
