Re: MIDWAY movie

I enjoyed the movie and think the critics do not know what the hell they are talking about. Yes there were a few things wrong with the movie and yes they couldnt fit it all into the movie. But I think they did an amazing job telling the story of the gallant sailors, airmen, and marines at Midway. Th...

Re: Cologne Panther Killer gets Bronze Star 75 years later

I recall the Panther commander hesitated. Fatal mistake. Possibly because the Pershing was new to the theater and he might not have identified it immediately as hostile. It certainly didn't look like a Sherman or Churchill. If i remember correctly from the book that is exactly why. The commander of...

Re: Marauder Task Force WWII Kickstarter

The only Kickstarter that I was skeptical of from any person or group that was 1:18 was the MARV from Wayward Goat. As much as I wanted to see it succeed I think he asked for too much and had too many variations.

Re: Marauder Task Force WWII Kickstarter

Their business model is quite successful. I don't think anyone has to worry....this time. They've had similar delay issues going back to 2015 where they had promised delivery before Christmas only to announce in December it wasn't going to happen. They blamed "shipping errors" and color confusion. ...

Late August now? I'm not in on this but I'd be furious. That's a real kick in the shorts. They've had a year and a half to get these in your hands. Curious what excuse they are using for the delay? The standard one is always problems with the Chinese manufacturers or customs issues. I warned of the...

Re: FOV rouses itself from slumber...!!!

I was trying to suggest to FOV that they release a repaint of their M26 Pershing as the Pershing that knocked out the Panther in the famous tank duel in front of the cathedral in Cologne. It appears that Facebook is the only way to contact them, but I don't use Facebook. FOV used to release models ...
