Maybe not but at the rate Takom releases new kits I'm not going to complain. Looking forward to their M113's being released soon.

Do you know what versions they will be making and when will they be released?

They have only announced the ACAV version so far. I'm hoping for other versions to follow like their T-55 & Chieftain range.

I'd like at least two of those, including the transported V2. Bit torn about it though - they're really cool looking and are an important part of rocket history, but I also remember my Granny telling me about her time in London during the blitz...

It's not a new one as such. They originally boxed it as three separate kits. The male, the female and the hermaphrodite. They've just done it as a single box now, and included the click-link tracks from the Whippet and Tadpole.

Yes, I can't say that the box art for the V-2 is in particularly good taste. They are releasing the Hanomag on it's own without the trailer and V-2

I dunno, I think I respect the box art for acknowledging the V2 as a terror weapon rather than simply an engineering feat or a fat little rocket.

 

I certainly wouldn't think worse of anyone who wants to build one :) And even my uncertainty about building my own doesn't make sense given that I have a V1 in the cupboard and those were the ones Granny really hated.

 

Cheers,

 

Will

Glad to hear it :)  If you applied the "oooh, it killed people" ethos to every model, we wouldn't have much left to build, as most tanks, planes and almost everything else has been used in one way or another to support or persecute the war, and even civilian cars & planes occasionally kill people, mostly by accident, thankfully.  I try my damnedest to leave what people use these machines for at the door for my hobby :)

To be absolutely clear, I was only ever talking about whether *I* wanted to build one - as I said, I do, but I feel a bit odd about that due to family history. Everyone else can follow their own path through the grey (plastic) areas :)

 

Cheers,

 

Will

All of them look good to me.

 

I primarily model German Panzers from North Africa. My father was there with the US Army and two different German relatives served in the campaign on the, ahem "other side". For me it's a "family affair"!

 

Even worse, I Jewish................................:blink:
