Not everybody's favorite in quality terms I know, but they do do an impressive range of subjects in 1/72nd armour.


This caught my eye - Japanese Type 95 car:

Lot of money for a small car, but then at least it's not another bloody Jeep or Kubelwagon, and has quite a distinctive look of it's own. I imagine it would look good in civvie colours too.

Not sure if this is new or not, but it's new to me:

Now that's a turret that's begging to be put on another hull for a credible whiff: any BMP, a PT-76....

Its been out a couple of months H, and if you want any of Ace's kits but without the excessive price tag have a look on modelsua.com, Ivan is pretty good at giving discounts too, if your cheeky enough  :rolleyes: :lol:

For those who have built any of these tracked vehicles, and like me nearly had a nervous breakdown over the virtually unusable tracks that are supplied in the kit, a rubbery light has appeared at the end of the tunnel in the shape of these coronary preventing goodies

Cheap enough to buy several sets of as they do them for a couple of different kits. Looks like a couple of my stalled builds will be getting brought back to life now.

This looks rather nice too, and would suit a nice big turbo prop and contra props too.

This is interesting: Ace are doing one of the Soviet Aerosan snow vehicles in 1/72nd. Previously these were only available from Trumpeter in 1/35th:

Somebody should've told that Dodge command car driver that he ran over a Crosley along his route.

It's good to see someone doing French softskins and WWI guns, which of course fit into a 39/40 scenario

The parts for the Mk.V are apparently included in the Mk.III boxing.   The major difference is the turret top (of which there are two).  The one with the extra gunner's sight on the turret top front is the Mk.V lid.
