my first impressions are that they decided not to go with a lot of PE. Only one fret. A set of accessories which includes a cooler plus two each of fuel and water cans. These remind me of J's Work and a flier for J's Work products is included in the box.
I found some flash plus odd approaches such as splitting the muzzle of the weapons in two (barrels are whole) instead of using a sliding pin. No decals for the instruments were found but this was a quick look. I hope I am wrong as the dials are just raised rings with no other details.
A vinyl sprue includes cabling and flexible lines which are a nice touch.
The last page of the instructions is an advertisement for AV Vallejo's Professional Airbrush Set.
Some parts were obviously added at a later date as they don't appear on the parts map but are in the instructions. The aforementioned sprue with the cooler and fuel cans also includes an M2 HMG. Oddly, the muzzle tip is also split in half but the rest of the barrel is one piece which fits in the perforated section which is also halved.
I have located my Panda Hobby M-ATV and will pull it out to compare.
