Thorvic    whatwhatwhatwhat!!?  to quote a goon
that's another must buy for me, ive only been waiting 30+years, and got the accurate armour 432/30 a couple of years ago,  :banghead:
any news of when ? and cost?

It was announced SMW weekend last November, I suspect it will be out in the next 6 months if they are onto the boxart, no idea on the cost you'll have to keep an eye open. Hopefully they will do different version (the REME vehicle to support the Chieftain would be a no brainer  :mellow: ).

One thing it might lead to is BOAR British troops by the aftermarket people as these vehicle need crews, mechanics and soldiers.

In the meantime I think they will be getting their T-29 E5 and T-30/32 US heavy tanks out before the FV-432

BNA Modelworld are having a 1 week 15% off Takom sale.  That might be enough off to cover the postage to the Northern Hemisphere?

Hannants have the FV432 in at £38.  There's a Bulldog boxing due out too, at £49.

HLJ have both boxings available.  The Bulldog might work out cheaper even after the tax man and banker have had their cut.

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

New (I think) in 1/72 from Takom.
Not cheap ($94 for 1/72 armour!) and if it's parts breakdown is anything like their 1/35 stuff the carpet monster will be extremely well fed, but such whiffing potential...

Also these in 1/35.  Not sure if these are RW or Whiff (or paper panzers) but they look good.

Well in all fairness you do get the dozer as well, so it's basically three kits. Hannants are listing it as a Future Release at £63. Still pricey-per-kit but not unheard of.

They're also listing this at £40:

These are the 'correct' cabs for the Stratos-4 TSR.2 TEL vehicles, so you could build one with either a scratchbuilt back-end, or possibly a kitbash with the Zvezda Topol IRBM vehicle.

The Coelian never made it to the hardware stage, not even a prototype was realized. Only a wooden turret mock-up with twin 5.5cm guns was "realized" on a Panther hull.
The other design, with four 20mm cannon, was a Rheinmetall proposal in 1943 which was to offer the crew a better protection than any other motorized AA vehicle at that time (Wirbelwing, Möbelwagen, and various other, lighter vehicles on Panzer 38(t) and half-track chassis'), which were all open. IIRC, this one even did not make it to the mock-up stage and was a real paper project.
IIRC, Dragon did them both in 1:72, too?

I've always liked the look of the Coelian, but the other one strikes me as rather odd looking for some reason.
Decals my @r$e!

Yeah, the double step in turret looks a bit strange.  The Coelian is interesting, almost looks like a modern SPAAG.
