Unless trumpeter changed some things

The AFV club kits are the most accurate. I think the trumpeter Stykers had some shape and dimensional issues, unless they fixed them with the later releases

AFV Club

Actually the AFV Club Stryker also has some dimensional issues. Neither of 1/35 kits is entirely correct "size and shape-wise" and funny thing is that some dimensions that are correct in the Trumpeter kit (e.g. nose slab width, overall hull width) are wrong in the AFV Club kit (too narrow nose slab, too narrow hull) and things that are wrong the in Trumpeter kit (e.g. too wide roof, too "fat" hull "nose") are correct in the AFV Club one... But to me AFV Club model looks more correct overall and is certainly better detailed.
