Re: roll call any groundpounders? left?

Like others, I don't remember exactly when I discovered the previous board, probably just after getting the 1:18 21st Century Sherman at Toys R Us...very early 2000's is best guess. I went by Jagdplastic. I changed to the current moniker with the new board format. Checking back at least weekly, ofte...

Re: NEW FORCES of VALOR 2013 PREDICTIONS

I've been hoping someone would produce the Sd.Kfz. 250 halftrack series. Many chances for repaints and variants, plus there are several interchangeable parts from the Sd.Kfz. 251 series that could be incorporated.

As in "nebelwerfer"? Nope. Would be interesting though, if done correctly and, as others have said, with a well-sculpted crew.

Re: NEW FORCES of VALOR 2013 PREDICTIONS

I still have yet to get the KRUPP TRUCK, so in a way that worked out, at least it'll come with a gun. Lame-ass re-paints don't count, unless they include NEW FIGURES in GOOD poses. I'm mostly of the same opinion. I want the Krupp Truck, but in a camo scheme and I was really hoping they'd make one, ...

Re: Can you ID this tiger?????

Appears to be Tiger 211 of the s.SS-Panzer-Abteilung 102 in Normandy. There are pictures of this tank in the book Tiger I on the Western Front by Jean Restayn. The staggered outline numerals are characteristic of this unit.

The same bad figures as the others, but the half track body and running gear look pretty good for $4.99. It comes with decals for 5th SS Panzer "Wiking" and 21st Panzer, no DAK palms, how...

They also had a Scharnhorst kit, a Corsair, and some modern jet fighter kits there. I needed some wheels/tires to convert one of the 21st Century Maultiers into a standard wheeled ...

Well, with Hobby Master 1:72 ground offerings approaching the $35-40 mark and Dragon 1:72 ground offerings approaching the $30-35 mark it's about time to bid adieu to buying any of those products not on sale.

I've been waiting for this little beauty to show up. We don't see many very late war paint schemes.

Re: questions --Dragon German tanks

Dragon Tiger 242 was the assistant commander's tank of the 2nd company of schwer-SS-Panzer-Abteilung 102, not a Heer unit as the description for the model indicates. The company commander's tank was 241. I've not been able to discover the name of 242's commander, however. My sources indicate that al...

Re: FOV 1/32 Panthers

I don't think that 21st, FOV 1:32, or Dragon 1:35 have hit a homerun with either of their Panthers to date. Specifically, the FOV Panther seems a bit too large, being too wide and a bit too long. If you turn the mantlet over and re-install it correctly the gap between the underside and the hull top ...

This could be kinda fun going back and forth on the differences between the F's and G's so here goes...

Re: Anybody getting FOV's 2011 1/16 Tiger 1?

I, too, was excited about the 1/16 Panzer that they initially were advertizing, but the release of yet another Tiger reminds me of the "Trouble with Tribbles" episode in the first Star Trek series. A "Trouble with Tigers" situation if you will. Way, way too many of them.

Re: Dragon Armor Jadgpanther 60007 Question

My sources indicate that directives were issued in February, 1945 to use a dark olive green as the base coat on all new armored vehicles. I don't know whether this particular vehicle existed or not, however.
