Because of the heavy weight of this JT, will it have the 18 tooth sprockets and single link tracks? The 18 tooth sprockets would have more positive engagement with the track links while loading/unloading from a transport vehicle.

Is it too early to ask for the next-next model ? how about a M24 Chafee ? Light tank, used in ww2 and later, not too big to fit in the back of a car, sounds perfect.

I am doing some research on my 25 PDR and a little book I got from Vangard (not great.... but some useful photos) has pictures of a Sexton in it!

That's an M3 Lee/Grant chassis built at the Montreal Locomotive Works, and mounted with a 25 PDR.

Really sexy Self-Propelled gun that could be built out of two existing kits... The 25 PDR Kompact and the Lee/Grant chassis with some new upper bodywork and sheetmetal.

That's a track I'd definitely own! Think about the possibilities in detailing the 'turret?'

Just a thought....

Sorry Gerhard but we already have a few orders from Germany to keep your JT company :wink:
You may have started a trend !

Excellent choice, can't wait to build the brute with a full interior ! 8)
Not to worry about the internals on the JT Phil, there's lots of exploded views on the net, usually with an American soldier posing next to it.:lol:

Another reliable German Monster :oops:

But seriously, it is probably the best model to do a internal, the topic will be enthralling and will probably take years to complete. A labour of love,

I don't need Netflix's now, this is one series I'm going to sit back and enjoy, (after Chieftain of course) no piece for the wicked :lol:

You'll need to renew the gym subs too, and a lifting rig will be a major requirement :mrgreen: :lol:

I still think rivets were the way forward, Crusader would have made a very lively model, maybe next time.

It was a little over one year ago, that I posted my interest in the M4A1 (Cast Hull) Sherman tank. Many had “Chimed” in stating their interest too. I felt that the early version that was sold to England and named “Michael” would be the perfect available example to copy. It’s historical significance is undeniable, and I feel would be a great addition to the WWII tanks produced by Armortek. My request however, was met by Kian stating to me that the upfront cost of having the Hull made would be too great of an investment.....but would be considered for upcoming models. Well, with the arrival of another survey, it again is missing! Am I the only person who wants one of these? I wrote in the survey that if the cost for such a vehicle would be expensive....why not ask us if it’s too much by giving us some “Numbers”?

Respectfully,
Jack

About the survey, nothing in it made me "ooh and aah" but I suggested the Pz.38(t) which would open the door to several conversions. As second choice, obviously, after S Tank.

I think the Land Rover is interesting... but not a Series 1... A Series IIa. Is there a more iconic post-war British military (and other) vehicle? SAS Pink Panther. A utility vehicle for "The troubles". Everyone who owned or remembers one?

I loved many of the suggestions. But the Land Rover idea is really remarkable. As a guy who drove LR's for decades, I'd own one in a second. I even owned a real SAS Pinkie for a while. Now in West Virginia, I think.

I can't imagine a more iconic vehicle to offer that would appeal to a broader audience and bring them into the Armortek Fold. Because we all know that building one is just like trying to eat a single Crisp. Good luck with that.

Cheers,

Hi Guys
Land rover is an interesting idea but if you go that route then it would have to be a Willy's Jeep for me.

Shoutout for the scammel pioneer ,a superb off road gun tractor, recovery vehicle, and tank Transporter .
Used in most theatres of WW2, prized by axis & allied forces, so can utilise the full range of Armortek artillery, shorter in length than most tank transporters.
Would appeal to all the Scammel fanatics out there, off road modellers and The Armortek crew who wants a less ugly gun tractor (can be fitted with tracks) are there anymore fans out there ?
