Oshkosh M-ATV Photo Walkaround - AK Interactive

Oshkosh M-ATV Photo Walkaround

AK Interactive (ISBN 8 436535 570978)


This new walkaround book from Mig Jimenez' Ak Interactive is a very high quality reference manual for anyone with the new 1:35 Kinetic M-ATV reviewed here, or the Panda kit that is also available. It is perfect bound, and runs to 71 pages, all of which are devoted to photographs of this aggressive looking all-terrain vehicle.

The book is divided into chapter, which deal with one side of the vehicle at a time, and a section on its deployment to Afghanistan brings up the rear to show the vehicle in-theatre. Chapters are as follows:

  • Front side
  • Right Side
  • Left Side
  • Rear Side
  • Top Part
  • Suspension
  • Afghanistan

Each chapter has a few sentences about the section of the vehicle it deals with, but apart from these introductory paragraphs, there are no captions to any of the pictures. This isn't a drawback for those simply requiring reference photos, but it could have been interesting to find out a little more about the various systems employed on the vehicle.


All of the photos are in full colour, and very sharp, getting deep into the workings of the vehicle. Nothing is left in deep shadow and every angle seems to be covered.


A beautifully presented reference manual that will appeal to anyone building the new kits of this mine-resistant successor to the HUMVEE, and although I would have liked a few captions here and there, it's only a minor gripe that doesn't interfere with its intended purpose.

Highly recommended.
