What will be Armortek's next new offering?

Post by jseverett » Thu Feb 06, 2014 5:54 pm

What will be Armortek's next new offering? Any ideas? What's on your wish list? How about an Sdkfz.9 18T halftrack or another allied US tank (such as the Grant/Lee, as in Hunphrey Bogart's Sahara movie, it is interesting looking)? Please weigh in my fellow forum members. I know that many want just more German stuff......but I feel that there needs to be some balance. Just my opinion.......

Hi All….

I would go for a British (Morris) Quad Gun Tractor & Ammunition Fuel Limber to pull Armotek 25 pounder field gun.

Cheers
Ian from Glasgow.

Still a lot of possabilites from the Russian front too. Personally, I'd just like to see an early Panther-G, conversion kit (always felt the late G was a mistake), or maybe even go all-out and do an "A", which would require a complete re-design from the ground up.

Sdkfz 251 would be great but I hope the sdkfz 222 is re-released also. My budget would prefer something small at the moment. I think quad gun carrier would be nice for the 25 pounder builders. Give the allies a chance. Too much german stuff at last open day.

sdkfz 250 halftrack, many build options, small enough to handle, would appeal to the beginner or hardened armortek fan, like me!

Third a 250 also.
Keep it small. Quad tractor and trailer for the allies. That would be 2 nice releases.
