I would like a to make a night figthing Panther with my JSI Panther.If pickle make this IR kit,i will be for one of this kits too.There where made 5 repaints on the Panther.They look like clones,the only difference is just the colors.This kits such as side skirts,tracks for the turret,infra red system and backdates will allow us to give individual characteristics to each Panther.

Time to pull this out of the past . I am trying to locate Grunt and see what he wants to do with his 3-d copy.

If he allows I would like to copy his Schwimagen and cast it.

Is there still interest ?

Here is Grunt's old Schwimm post

Good news !!

I was able to text Grunt today and we have worked out a deal for me to barrow his Schwimm so I can copy it.

So hopefully I can have it out to you guys this year !!

Pickel, could you ask Grunt whatever happened to his RSO. Not trying to get off topic, just wondering about it.

The Schwimmwagen will be a great addition to the 1:18 line and its our members keeping it going.
I think 3D printing is just a fantastic technology but the cost for print time is prohibitive with larger
pieces as stated be blitzhazed. So print the prototype and make molds seems to be the only way to go.


Thanks Matthew regarding the RSO.

If the RSO was made in 1:18 this would be a cool custom...

He has not returned my last 2 texts .

He has found almost all of the parts except the rag top.

I suggested if he still has the scan to make a whole new printing so I will not have to tear down his original but he has yet to answer me back.
