  1. Losing respect

    Do you ever lose respect for an author so much that you stop reading a book immediately ...... And I quote "The Red Army had it's own tanks, the T-34s (American designed and probably the best tank of the war)" I can accept the BT series were designed around the J Walter Christie tank, but to claim the T-34 was American is a stretch ....... as they produced the M3 and M4 for their own troops. Who is this author Stephen E Ambrose of Band of Brothers fame. The book Citizen Soldiers: The US Army from Normandy to the Bulge

    Can I throw in the Short twins, Stirling (with bomb trolley and tractor) and Sunderland. No doubt someone will point out that there are better Italeri offerings, but the joy of building these two is what the thread is about.

  15. You can always add a GPMG to a grey HAR 3 for some "offensive" capability.
