Hey Vinnie


Nice work on the Hornisse, she looks very convincing..

It really is hard to believe a 1/72 kit can have such an amount of detail!!

Interesting article to read, and it makes me wanna go out and buy one...

Thanks Bjorn. Go get one, and remember to say you saw it here! I mean it, it's a great little kit, I'll definately be building more versions!

Nice review and build. At what point did you paint the roadwheels? I am about to start the Stug IV and it uses the same seperate hubs.

Looks like 1/72 and you get along just fine Vinnie - well done. Give one of the 1/48 kits a go - they are even more fun!

Great build Vinnie, and a nice articel. I echo your comments about these 1:72 kits which are so well detailed that you have to keep remembering yourself that it's not 1:35. I have just finished the UM 1:72 T-26-4, and I was tempted to try some more. Your articel has convinced me, Dragon will be a imminent purchase for me..
I think I might start building 1;72 if I want to build something ordinairy, and stick to 1:35 for the 'weird and wonderfull' which I tend to find on eBay..

Cheers
Henk
