Hi Guys
I really wish I had gone in for one of these as well as the Hetzer it looks a super bit of kit.
Storage space is an issue for me now :shock:

Regards

Derek

Dried mud is tough. Frozen mud is impossible. Essentially the same as concrete. Dried mud is normal around Tucson, but not frozen mud.

Castings have arrived !!!

We have wasted no time in getting the turrets on to their first machining operation. In total each turret will spend about an hour and a half on the machines going through various operations.

Differential cases will be set up soon.

Current projection is that we should be able to start shipping in 7 to 10 work days. :D

20 Sherman kits packed up - shipping well underway now.
Funnily enough this is probably as exciting an experience for us as it is for the people getting the kits :-)
