  1. Have just recieved the Meng Mk.V. I have also recently bought the Takom Mk.IV Hermaphrodite of the same person. Not had chance to have a proper look at the Meng kit yet but the part count is really impressive for the cost, even at full price.
  2. Struck lucky as there was one for sale on this site. Fraid it's now gone
  3. Thanks for the reply. Will have to treat myself to one in the near future.
  4. Recently got my grubby mits on a Takom Mk.IV kit and was toying with the idea of doing a bit of internal detailing so as to have one of the doors open. Now I have found that Meng models do a Mk.V with a full interior. Being a newbie to AFV's, how do the Meng offerings rate?
  5. Here's a link to view the internal details for the new Takom King Tigers.
  6. Here's a link to a Japanese site that shows the sprues for all 3 kits. Can't find an English translation though. It looks like the main difference between the standard kit and the special edition is the zimmerit has a panel missing for the unit badge. Looks a bit tasty, can see me getting one or two of these.
  7. If I've got it correct, all 3 kits have a full interior
  8. Getting more and more into AFV's and noticed that Takom have three 1:35 scale King Tigers for release in the near future. One has a Porsche turret with zimmerit and the other two have the Henschel turret also with zimmerit. One of the Henschel offerings is marked up as a special edition. Any idea what makes this a special edition?
  9. please delete as posted in wrong forum.
  10. 1:35. It's for the AFV Club SW-60 searchlight and trailer. Looking at some walkaround piccies, they seem to have been kept very clean with very little weathering.
  11. Looking for the grey used by the Germans on their field guns etc. Would Tamiya XF63 be a good match? TIA
  12. Sorry, not
  13. Looking for a change from aircraft and toying with doing a 88mm AA gun with searchlight and Telemeter. As far as I can see, only AFV do a searchlight, SW-36 with Sd.Ah.51 trailer, Bronco do the Telemeter KDO Mod.40 with Sd.Anh.52 trailer. Is there anything to know regarding the build up of these kits? Also, which is the best 88mm kit to go with these? TIA Chris
  14. Unfortunately one of the photos show a head on view and the other one is a side view of the nose, so I cannot compare the red with the roundel. It looks like a 'I'll paint them a red and somebody has to prove it's the wrong shade' moment.
  15. Wrong. Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder
