Amusing Hobby have sent Armorama some news on their version of the Object 279.
Amusing Hobby has entered the fray for Object 279 with some CAD images and a box art image. I am a little lost with news of the Object 279 coming in from various companies but I do wait with interest to see which kit earns the largest following of this interesting looking but failed tank.

This is sort of Amusing, one of the first (if not the first) times when there are more manufacturers of a 1/35-scale model than there is/was original vehicles, one prototype Object 279 and three model kit makers (Panda, Amusing and Takom). I wonder if some of the kits are the same ....

Are you serious? Want to bet something on that? Cheers, Christophe

Has anyone noticed that the recently posted Panda Models sprue shots? it looks to me like it has an anti-slip coating, all the photos that I could find, the casting looks much smoother, especially the front slope, did anyone else notice this? it seems funny how a lot of kits are missing the texture where it should be, and now where its NOT needed we have it. Hopefully its just because its a test shot? I think I'll wait for the Amusing Hobby kit, their NBFZ was beautiful! I cant wait for this one, SOMETHING COMPLETLY DIFFERENT!!!! P.S. I would also like to see a T10 and T44, as I've seen posted on another forum, I think we'll eventually get em. and while I'm at it how about a M103, a Conqueror and I sincerely hope that Amusing Hobby will put out a A1E1 Independent considering there affinity for one-off prototypes!

Hi! DRAGON has been releasing more German armor than was ever produced by the Germans during WWII for years! Is this going to be the new trend? Maybe the Objekt 279 is going to be the next Tiger I in the modelling community!!!

[/quote] Dragon is One (1) producer making kits of vehicles that maybe never existed :-) In this case it is three (3) producers competing over One single individual (which did exist). It's like comparing American vs European football ;-) / Robin

Even if you build something entirely fictitious, there will ALWAYS be some creep running your work into the mud! And the sad part is that these people NEVER build anything of their own! The best thing to do is ignore them!
