Mario,
do you have the Blast one at hand to make a comparison between both sets ?

Yes
Since Blast model one is coming the electronic component on the side of the hull.
Does VM is going to release the add on as well ?
Cheers

Thanks guys. To answer Olivers question, unfortunately no, I don't have the Blast set for comparison but have seen some pics on the net. What I don't get is VM's set is intended for the Trumpeters LAV-25 but without the electronics pack (huge box on the side) it's useless for that purpose. Unless you get the box in the kit. I feel it has more use as a general purpose set (if you wish to add it to a HMMWV perhaps) or fell it is more posable with some other aftermarket set.

Oh, forgot - if I have to choose, I'd pick the turned metal one over resin parts due to the thing post to avoid deformation and warping IMO

Yes, you score one point there.
