Well count me in. Dunno what it'll be yet but there is a strong possibility its gonna be a Wolverine and no possibility whatsoever its going to be a Hetzer/Marder. Whatever it is its going to be OD or Bronze Green, these I believe are colors used by gentlemen of taste and finesse.....On a personal note though, I find Hungarian Hetzers a lot sexier than the bog-standard German variety.....lol. Of course I could build a Wiesel....doesn't need much storage space...lol......... (++) (++) (++) (jim's TD crew)(tm)

P.S. Before I get flamed for this post, I know that the Wiesel was a recce vehicle....However Sov-Land could have developed a range of miniature tanks.......

Does Tamiya's 25 Pounder Field Gun qualify as a tank killer? It's both a howitzer and a gun if I'm not mistaken

Jeepney, yes the 25-pounder had a very potent anti-tank capability. To facilitate this function, advantage was taken of an invention which dated back to the end of the First World War. The circular platform was carried under the trail which could be dropped on the ground, allowing rapid all round traverse for anti-tank firing.

Great! Thanks Ken! I'm in with the reissue of the Tamiya Quad and 25 Pounder. This kit is older than I am #:-)



Don't worry Dave. Your Zwischenloesung is safe from my grubby hands

Can't wait to see it Jeepney! It's very cool seeing artillery pieces performing direct fire on a tank!

Hi all

Sounds good! :-)

Could be the excuse I've needed to build my A.M. Il-2 Stormovik...

All the best
