Modeling isn't just about how good the gluing or painting, etc. looks. It's also about how creative and imaginative you can be with a subject.

Trumpy just announced one too with a full interior. Saw the cads on FB.

To the AFV modeller maybe they're like Spitfires, you can never have too many.............  ;D ;D ;) ;) ;)
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! :)

To the Panzer & Heer '46 fan boys, maybe, but they're so over-supplied with every micro-modified piece of German armour it's ridiculous.

The Sherman is still quite popular, too.

I'd rather see a broad spectrum of armour & vehicles from mainstream manufacturers covering 1916-2017, with major variants kitted, but leaving the micro-mod's to the after-market crowd.

1/35 preferrably, but 1/48 for those into the smaller scale (would be better if 1/48 was suitably scaled price-wise, too).

A few seem to be moving in this direction (Takom being one of them), which is good to see.

Be interesting to see some injection 20/30's AFV models. There are some but a lot more could be done.

Hobbyboss now do the Vickers Medium Tank, which should go nicely with the Vickers light Tank for that 20/30s look along with the good old Rolls Royce Armoured car, there's quite a bit of Soviet stuff covered .

Anyway Takom are doing the British FV432 with a full interior which should go well with the recent Chieftain tanks.  :thumbsup:

I saw that Geoff. Be nice to see more including the experimental stuff plus some of the French equipment. Maybe they will look at it. There can't be anything German left that they haven't modeled ?

They were planning to come out with the Landkreuzer P1500 Monster, but apparently canceled it last year. Why, I don't know.  :angry:  :angry:  :angry:
