weaver thanks for the heads up.  :thumbsup:

i'll have to look out for the VW transporter in 1/35. i'm sure the Luftwaffe have used a variant of that in recent years as a
flight-line transporter and or 'follow me' wagon.

some of the takom 1/35 figures are pretty good too.

They would if they weren't "Adamski" type saucers which as ane fule kno he made from the lid of his hot water service.
Lazy research Takom.  It's not like it's hard to find pictures of the real nazi saucers.

The ufo's are supposed to be Haunebu II's which look a lot like the Adamski (the Wave kit in 72nd is a Haunebu II but most of the hull parts are also used in the Wave 48th scale Adamski kit) and if anyone wants to add a Haunebu II to the tank kit Pegasus are supposed to be bringing one out in 1/144th.

I hope they do a good research job and get it acceptably accurate, otherwise it'll just ruin the whole thing...

But if you had UFO's why would you even need giant tanks ? Neat looking kit tho. If I was wealthy I'm sure I'd buy one just to look inside the box !
