IIRC someone does do a Stolly in 1/35, but it costs a FORTUNE!  :o

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Accurate Armour do one Kit  mk 1 or 2, 105
not extortionate but rather pricy
Redone 19/08/15  the things you learn, give your mind the wings to fly, and the chains to hold yourself steady added 07/10/18   take off and nuke the site form orbit, nope, time for the real thing, CAM and gridfire, call special circumstances.   wow, its like freefalling into the Geofront

GULP!  :o

That does sound extortionate to me, and my bank manager I expect.

Check out modelsUa.com, they are good for obscure 72nd scale armour and good price wise. They are a bit slow start sorting orders as the model shop is not his main business. He does plenty of other stuff too.

For my money, "extortionate" is probably too nice a word. :o

Up to $75-$80 I could handle (styrene prices), barely, but $180 is beyond funny (which is probably why I don't buy many resin kits).

Don't buy any 3D Printed stuff then Guy, the prices for anything big are really out of this world.  That 1/72 Dodge Ram I got was over C$60 ----

Its a 1:35 resin cast model with etch detail and other gubbins, its expensive but not extortionate

the Dragon Saladin AC 1:35 injection moulded is 50  which is as close as we currently have, and if its anything like the conqueror  from the same series it'll be a dog of a kit for me to put together ( yep I have one)

yes the old Tamiya chieftain is 18
the new Takoms are 59
unfortunately prices tend not to come down quickly on injection, and as resin is low production, / made to order its unlikely to ever be cheaper

105?  mere change compared to the 219 (182:50 outside EU) Kit Form Services want for their 1/24 resin kit.

Went to visit my Brother in Law yesterday which involves a circuitous route up The Peninsula, around the top of Westernport Bay and then down the other side.  It struck me that the trip would be much shorter by Stalwart (but I suspect not necessarily quicker).  There are plenty of boat ramps on both sides.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
