Re: 31st Jan 2020 - new kit announcement

Definitely hoping for a British 6pdr antitank Kompact Kit!

I love Armortek Artillery!

Shot some more paint. The LED lights and flash make the green look all wrong, and the photo looks kind of goofy. But in person, it looks great.

Going to have to do another coat before assembly and weathering. But it's pretty good!

Re: 31st Jan 2020 - new kit announcement

I must have read it wrong when I first clicked on it... because I thought it said "It will be an Allied and a German kit." Which had me looking at the only tanks used on both sides (except for captured iron)... and leading to very arcane R35 and Char-D's. I was definitely thinking "there's no way!" ...

Re: Chris's Rolls-Royce project - late to the party .....

Thanks, Chris.... I think I've heard most of those words. And political correctness... well, I failed that course rather badly! I will drop you a note for an e-mail and set you up with Jim. Another interesting book is Kermit Roosevelt's book War in the Garden of Eden. Not many know of the Iraq campa...

Re: Chris's Rolls-Royce project - late to the party .....

That's going to be a great build and congratulations! If you want to learn more about the RR Armoured Cars in Namibia, I highly-recommend my friend JIm's book "The Horns of the Beast" (Casemate Publishing) about WW1 in Namibia. Jim was stationed there and visited all the key battlefields and was lat...

Re: Something special turned up in the factory today ...

Oh, please, please, please let this be a hint for what is coming by the end of the month!!! I've already done the math and with an extra 1.33" added mostly behind the door, and some sheetmetal, grille work, etc... this could turn into an 88" late series 1. (Among Series 1's there were the early 80" ...

Re: Armortek Giveaway

Just set up a raffle.... WIth permission of the bosses here, you can perhaps advertise tickets. We do that all the time on another forum. Often the 'Mods are more 'receptive' if there is some level of charity involved. Some proceeds going to Bovington, for example. Not sure what the rules are in Jol...

Re: Armorteks next model

Yes, I have personally seen them. High level of detail, museum pieces...but at a terrific price! So, I’d love to see Armortek take them on! They too go to Bovington, and are listening to what the WWII tank enthusiasts want. So, may the best company win! I personally am cheering for Armortek! And ba...

Re: Armorteks next model

I think my hope of an FT17 is unlikely since one is being produced by a competing company... looks like a nice kit, but is more than Armortek is charging for a Chieftain or a Tiger! No reason to overlap... I would love an FT17 renault. But not for $US 8K! Just two weeks or so, in theory, to an unvei...

Re: Starting my 25 Pdr... Mirbat Gun.

So only got a few hours in this weekend and ran out of time over Christmas week to get as much done as I wanted. But, really, all I need to do are some linkages and final assembly. My marathon riveting session Sunday resulted in all the rivets being fitted. And I got primer on 'most' of the trail as...

Re: Armorteks next model

So most of us have been programmed at this point to recognize that the first week or 10 days if January... is when the speculation begins about what Armortek's next model will be!!! We have heard 'lighter and smaller' in the "survey results" post... but given the last few kits (Famo, Jagdtiger, Elef...
