Wonderful project with amazing detail. To follow Sunny59's comment, what does one do with a 1/6 Pzkfw IV when finished? Is it a remote controlled machine? Are there re-enactor clubs that work in this scale?

here are some pictures of my last weekend working

I have begun to inscribe on its casters gums.
since it is an exemplary .J. I've manufacturer mixed, thus the impression is created that everything was taken which was still to be found.

Amazing. How many parts in a kit like this? Is the kit comprehensive, or do you need to scratch-build some of it (beyond the zimmerit)?

Check out Armortek's website: http://www.armortek.co.uk/. Their latest tank kit is a 'Panther A' for about the price of a cheap compact car. The kit weighs 90 kilo ().

Sounds like a great retirement project to me

all metal, perfect detail, radio controlled, smoke, recoil....stunning- well the price is high, too. I´ve never seen a commercial model like this.

I think you would like to know next Panzer Tract will be about Pz IV. Arguabily will be the best source for Pz IV
