Two new contrasting but very cool kits from Meng...

Russian K-4386 Typhoon VDV Wheeled Armored Vehicle
1/35th scale
Injection plastic kit.
Photo-etch included
The very latest kit from Meng is the 35th scale version of the Russian K-4386 Typhoon VDV Wheeled Armored Vehicle. This injection plastic model kit is 175mm long and 72.9mm wide when completed. 

The Russian K-4386 Typhoon VDV 
In real life, the Tayfun/Typhoon-VDV K-4386 is a 4×4 mine-protected wheeled armoured vehicle designed and manufactured by Remdiesel, a subsidiary of Kamaz. It is the newest member of the Typhoon family of armoured vehicles. Designed to support combat missions, crew transportation, logistics, cargo transport, medical support, and other intense armoured offensive strikes.
The vehicle was on display during the Army 2019 International Military and Technical Forum in June 2019. It is currently undergoing final testing, which is expected to be completed by December 2019.
The kit has a movable suspension and front wheels can be turned. The doors on the vehicle can be posed opened or closed. The full interior and passenger's cabin are also included in this kit. 
The armament module integrates a 30mm 2A4 cannon system and a 7.62mm PKTM tank machine gun. The roof-mounted 360° remotely-controlled weapon station (RCWS) is covered with a protective shield, which ensures the operator’s protection. The top self-protection turret is also included in the kit. The kit also provides lights and windows with clear parts and phot-etch parts are also included in the box.

British Infantry Tank Churchill
SNap fit WWToons tank
The British Churchill infantry tank was the last infantry tank equipped by the British forces. This infantry support vehicle has protection similar to the heavy tanks. But its firepower was quite weak. Its giant chassis had two tracks running over the top, which was often a feature unique to WWI tanks. Nevertheless, it’s still used by the British forces as the main tank through WWII.
The MENG WWT-017 British Infantry Tank Churchill is the latest World War Toons product presented by MENG and Rascali LLC. This kit continues the features of this series, like cute shape and snap-fit assembly.
