Does anybody make models in 1/72 scale of WW2 US military tank destroyers?
I once made an M36 Jackson TD in 1:72, but it's unpainted and what's more, I failed miserably. Absolutely no reason to post pictures. :grin:
Well, I'm not wanting to scratch build them as I need several. Hopefully somebody has them.
Hmmm, if you are talking about many of them already built + almost full metal than look here:
They got the JagdTiger, Elefant and Ferdinand.
Extra Tech makes 1/72 scale kits of both the M36 and the M10 and Fujimi makes a 1/76 scale kit of the M36.
Armorfast have two-packs with both the M36 and the M10 I believe, these are less detailed kits made for gamers but they can be made acceptable with a little paint.
Oh, US tank destroyers... than I don't know where to get those...
Check out squadron.com.Look under 1/72 armor.
There is a brand called Armourfast by HAT Industries that makes an M-10 kit.Not super detailed,but you get two vehicles in the box.They are difficult to find.I got mine on ebay.
ArmourFast/HAT difficult to find. Good grief. You poor colonials, serves you right for leaving the mother country :wink: . My local model shop stocks them, £5.50 per box. I don't know what you're paying on E-Bay, but if it would work out cheaper to ship them from here just PM me and I'll pick some up for you.
More than one box at a time might take a while - the shop usually only stocks one of anything (worst model shop we have in town, unfortunately it's the only one).
A bad hobby shop sure beats no hobby shop.I've read post where members have to drive 50 miles to the nearest one.This would really suck if you're too young to drive.
I recently found some of the Armorfast kits. They look to be good enough for game use. Don't have any yet.
hey did you forget your bike?
I have two hobby shops in my town and there pretty good.
Definitely good enough for gaming - and cheap enough to chop about for experimental conversions.
BYW have you seen any of Italeri's new range? I got the M8 Greyhound (Grayhound?) - build as a model or wargame vehicle, the main difference is that for wargames the three wheels on each side come as a single unit.
Great idea, it leaves 6 wheels to build something else with!
I've done some long trips on my bike.120 miles over a two day period 3 1/2 times.On the forth trip my friends bike kept falling apart.His girlfriend picked us up the next morning.
He found out the hard way that you really should oil up your bike once in a while.
