Just spotted this on Martola's site http://www.martola.com.pl/en630/produkty68730/sd_kfz_234_puchs_
I've never heard of this name for the Puma with luchs turret.
My guess is, its the Roden hull with a new resin turret, they might do some more 234 oddballs.
Theres also an attack munitionspanzer 1 on the way.

puma+luchs=puchs and you never heard of it because the name is made up by Attack and with that name I can only think of mopeds and grease hands

"Puchs" or "Luma"?

October 5 2016, 2:29 AM 

Talking about SdKfz 234 family, at the present there are 3 popular 1/72 plastic kit manufacturers: Roden, Hasegawa and Italeri. As always, with all of them there are pros and cons. And of course, the Attack choice of the Pz. II Luchs turret wheeled carrier is the worse: Roden. In a word, now courtesy of Attack we have also a kit of one-off vehicle with the imaginary name "Puchs" and wrong engine deck.
Here are some pics, the Roden base is obvious:
The turret could be Flyhawk, Maco or Armory, I don't know.
More comments on the Roden kit and comparison with the rest here:

Hmmm don't understand the point, the Luchs are 2 a penny atm..
3 different manufacturer releases in the last 6 months?
Far easier to buy a better base model & kitbash?

Because it's cheaper to buy one kit instead of 2. If it is the Roden kit hull then it's fairly decent and if the turrets good then why spend another $20+ and ruin and excellent(if it's FH or MACO, have not seen the other yet) kit? I like the old Esci Puma better, I've heard the hasegawa kit is probably the best but I've never seen it and from what I've read of all those available none are clearly the best by a large margin, all the kits seem to have good points and bad.
