Azimut is not among the Top Ten when it comes to reliable internet vendors. Not sure if they qualify as one of the ten worst but they are trying hard to get on that list.
They only really safe way to shop from Azimut is to travel to Paris. One hand on the goods before handing over money ...

I am NOT saying that he is crooked but the skills required for managing a business is somewhat lacking.

The last, and definitely final, time I ordered something I had to wait over 18 months AND I had to switch out most of the order for other items to get something for my money.

The cautious customer keeps clear of Azimut.

And MBK is an extremely reliable shop. On the opposite side of the galaxy compared to Azimut ....

I have built this, & generally it's not bad, in that it looks the part. as here: HF Interior


I offer a few cautions:

Make sure floor parts are really well snuggled down, so that the vertical bulkheads on the sides and ESPECIALLY the cabin/engine compartment fit properly, or the roof won't fit.

The above engine bulkhead cuts directly across the 2 small hatches immediately behind the large cargo hatch.... sigh


It should be further back as per these pics. Pawel Scratch build

Others have managed to make a better job than I did,

You can see what's in the HF set here :

http://www.perthmilitarymodelling.com/reviews/vehicles/hobbyfan/hflvtp5.htm

IIRC, Hobby Fan's interior is said to be based on a Taiwanese amtrac one that may differs from a USMC one... But I'm no expert

Here's a build log :
