              Well suprisingly I had to do an ambush scheme. Well I don't own an airbrush so I did it all by hand, looks realistic, then watered white glue and baking soda. It will be a diorama of the crew and infantry eating and briefing before the launch of the Ardennes, I need a vehicle to artistically balance it.. A Kubelwagen perhaps,( A motorcycle is in the kit, but I have other plans for it..)

                  How about a SPW-251?

                    Henschel turret?

                    Nice work. I built a Tiger I about twenty years ago. Tamiya is a good brand. Fascinating detail. I think it was 1:25 which made it easy to work with. I later built a smaller Royal Tiger with the Porsche turret which I still consider to be the better looking of the two. Although I'm not sure as to its ballistic qualities. Germans sure knew how to design a hard hitting AFV. But I'm not sure which I would dread the most , a King Tiger or a JadgTiger. Either way if I couldn't move fast enough I'd be a goner.

                      When I was making models 35 years ago Tamiya was the only brand I'd buy. I must have had close to 30 pieces, regretably they didn't make it thru my many post high school moves......its good to know they still make a quality product.

                        Well a 251 may be nice as well as a 250 (smaller version). Tamiya is re-tooling their molds finally and are getting good. The kit came with the early war bike, late war bike, Henschel and Porsche turrets and figures. they are doing much better.

                          For what you are describing; you'd want a Kubelwagon and/or a Schwimwagon as well.

                            I on the other hand, still have every model, Tamiya or any other brand, made or unmade I ever collected and every set of decals and spare plastic parts that I obtained.

                            Every spare centimetre of space in my home is viewed as a potential display area for my models and every visitor is buttonholed and regaled with stories of my model-making prowess and descriptions of the epic scale of my collection.

                            How has this affected my family?
                            You know? I completely forgot to ask!

                            Still you are right they were and remain terrific kits which set a benchmark of accuracy and moulding finesse over forty years ago.

                            The original Tiger I kit was masterpiece and recently matched by their Char B, which some of my model-making buddies say is one of the best 1/35th scale AFV kits of the past few decades.

                            You should get back into model-making when you retire. The range of available kits these days is great.

                            Regards lodestar

                              Is it my imagination, or is this a nearly 10 year old thread
                              Life is change. Built models for decades.
                              Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
                              I didn't for a long time either.
