They've been designing 1/72 models for a long time.

Nice one Andras. These kits are quite amazing in terms of the detail that's incorporated into the hull and turret mouldings; impressive master and mould making. Know what you mean about the delicacy of some parts. On the Centurion I managed to snap the end of one of the side skirts, and I have certainly been very careful with it since then, nothing else broken, fingers crossed. For holding the turret, hull and skirts while painting I drilled small holes on the undersides just big enough to wedge and super glue cocktail sticks in, then have some blocks of that spongy foam packaging which the sticks can be popped into and out again.
So do you have some more of these kits in preparation?

Ulises we had this conversation with the ARL-44 They do 1/72; not sure how long they've been offering models in this scale, though.

Matt, thank you for your kind words. The cocktail stick method is really good idea; it beats painting the whole thing once assembled... although remarkable how resilient the turret is; it bounced a couple of times on the floor.
I have a pak44 SPG, but I'm not sure it'll be written up- I have a lot of things to do in my "other" life. Busy as heck.
