Re: Wanted: Full set of Panther Tracks

Well, in the 10 years that Hausen Tank Meeting exists, there was no year without a break of an Armortek track link, though there are mown meadows only, but some ascents. In the ten years I have had my tiger 1, I have broken a track link ONCE. I will bet that I will make it through this year's Hause...

That translates to a glass of schnapps on the barrel of a 1/6th Chieftain, doesn't it?

Yes, rust on tanks is OK but only after they've been buried for at least eighty years.
I'll second that! :D

Re: s.Pz.Abt. 503 King Tiger - Stab 1 (Nordewin von Diest-Körber) 1/16 R/C

Oh, I was going to mention that the "Feldherrnhalle" thing was a way of "promoting" the very successful 503 to the same status as the named SS battallions. At this time of the war, a defeat was in the soldier's mind and potentially being mistaken for an SS soldier would be a bad thing if captured. T...

Very interesting story! I have taken an interest in the 503 myself. Fortunately, there is tons of information about them, but I did not know of this episode. Your avatar depicts Kurt Knispel, the most successful gunner in armor history (yes, he did outgun the notorious Michael Wittman, because he li...

Ha ha! Smart to make us look for details! There are plenty to find. Very nice and unusual! :D
Switch on the left hand battery, perhaps?

Re: 31st Jan 2020 - new kit announcement

There is a scratchbuilt UC in this film with the prototypical steering mechanism. It is a beautiful runner, which proves that the concept works well in the model world too. The builder wanted to see if replicating the mechanism would replicate its manner of movement too. https://www.youtube.com/watc...

Re: 2019 King Tiger

I would love to hear a sound check on these wheels when the time comes! The old ones have a rather loud rattle against the tracks. :D
Maybe like switching to a luxury car? :D
