Hmm, it's shown on a flyer over at Perth Military Modeling, but no details. Hard to tell if it's new tool or a reboxed version of the Academy M-60 kit. They have done that with kits like Academy's 1/35 Blackhawk, 1/35 M-48, and 1/32 F-16.

Well...The image LOOKS like CAD, so my moneys on a new tool.

BUT, I agree, hard to tell.

What throws me is that it looks like some of the parts like the outer road wheels are in a lighter color in that CAD drawing. That might suggest they are new tool parts and the darker areas may represent the Academy base.

Hi,

Here we are two years further and this has appeared:
http://www.luckymodel.com/scale.aspx?item_no=AF%2035060

I like Pattons, but I don't browse armor forums enough to have found out if it is indeed a completely new tool.
Most of the AFV Club Churchills at Luckymodel are below 40$, so this Patton should really be a new tool.

Cheers, Stefan.

Default 100% New tool

I've seen some of the sprues at last years AMPS Nats and all of them have been on Facebook. Definitely 100% new kit. Detail is light years ahead of existing kits. Have one on pre-order from HobbyEasy, just as I finish up an M60A3 build with all the latest correction sets...

And it looks like it comes with USMC accoutrements.

Sold!

Default Sprue shots (Facebook though)

Yah, casting texture is a tad overdone, but that can be fixed. The rest of the details more than make up for it.
Former Marine tanker Mike Mummey suggests not all is good for a USMC vehicle though:
