Re: 1/16 tanks

I've watched it and paused the video every few seconds the details that are hidden are amazing. The groundwork / landscaping blows me away, take a look at the trees. They are well made and don't look like bottle brushes. I agree the mixed scales, 1:18 and 1:16 work in this case due to the size of th...

Re: Replacement parts wish list

That sounds good Pat, the snap and fit might be the way to go.
Track link and pin work and I like the way
the tracks sit but man thats a lot of pins.

The "rubber band" tracks just don't look right to me. If the snap fit
tracks work...I'm in. :salute: Thanks!

I'll stay tuned :shock: !

Grunt, I've been wondering what it would take to make 1:18 individual track links. I have used 1:16 Panzer IV tracks on 21st's Panzer IV's...Looks ok but the track links don't line up with the drive sprocket teeth so I filed them off. I'd like some for the Panther as well. Both tanks should have the...

Very cool Normandy, did you have to extend the body to make it a "middle" Horch?
No, its out of the box. The front doors are rounded to fit around the tire and the
rear doors are shorter than the ones you made.

Your door panels look great as do the wheel covers.
