Got myself a little something...

I'm aware of the issues but it seems like a good deal nonetheless. I'm tempted to throw it all together to see how it works out...

Found this one on sale for 38€....hadn't really planned to get a final IV J but then I found this photo:

Some nice purchases guys.

These arrived today.

The book is pretty nice. there are several different types of vehicles that they show the painting and weathering process. A beginner modeler would want to watch some of Migs how to DVDs to get a better understanding on how to apply some of the techniques that are discussed in the book.

I have seen the MJ resin tool clamps advertised, what do they look like in the "flesh"?

They must be easier to use than etch?

More figures and a motor cycle crew too

Have fun

The tool clamps are really nice. I will be using some on the 250.

Well this just happend. :D

I have been wanting to build either a Stug or a Sherman lately. Its been awhile since I have built a tank. :roll: I already have one Dragon Stug 6365 in the stash. I was looking online and came across this. The stug alone sells for$60.00 to $70.00. I have a really hard time paying that price for a model kit but it does come with Magic Tracks again. :D

But then I came across this combo set for $70.00 on ebay. :o The box is huge.

Not only are there two kits and magic tracks, but it includes the accessory that every German tank needs, a bucket! :D

Not only does it have the bucket which is already assembled, there is supposedly a tool to make realistic dents in the bucket. :roll: Im not sure what that is all about yet. Funny thing is, I have never put a bucket on a German tank. I guess I will have to this time out of principle, and it was have realistic dents in it.

Maybe I will add a bucket and a bicycle. :roll:

A few goodies arrived recently. I have two Stug projects in mind. One winter and one with the reloading crew. I believe the hornet heads are a new release and they are simply stunning.

Nice haul Shawn, what kind of Stug do you have in mind?

In other news, Happy Birthday to me...

Treated myself to another Panzer IV...this is a rebox of the fairly new Academy kit (not the ancient 60's Tamiya clone!), certainly looks good in the box...

And by Raoul, among other useful stuff, two t-shirts featuring armoured things in a broader sense :lol:

Thankfully my highly athletic body still fits inside 4XL shirts :lol:
