Re: 31st Jan 2020 - new kit announcement

t34 re-run.

remember guys, this is for summer (uk) release. therefore r&d plus prototype build is a tight time frame. given the kt & jt kit sizes and production run i'm sticking with p4 & t34 76/85 re-run............aaargh new kit announcements are mind bending.

Re: 31st Jan 2020 - new kit announcement

I'm going for Panzer 4 revival & US Half track. Both already in the system so basically re-runs which would fulfill the summer dispatch. Also cheaper therefore catering to those loving the brand but out priced with the larger releases. Possibly the sherman instead of the half track.

Re: Wanteds `Elefant Pics

G'day Steve,

Thanks for the pics. I'm after the top pics around the commander cupola and loaders hatch.

These pics are still gratefully welcomed for future detailing of those areas.

Cheers

Wanteds `Elefant Pics

G'day All,

Hoping someone can help and provide or direct me to the pics showing the top of the TD. I have books that show drawing but this doesn't show welded areas. The top is hard to find.

Thanks a lot.

Re: Late Tiger 1 commission build by Phil Woollard

G'day Phil, I purchased the same radiator set as you are working on and must say that for the price I paid I wasn't to happy with the quality. To me if you pay a high price you get high quality with minimal requirement of cleaning and modifying to fit properly. I purchased some tiger 1 turret stuff ...
