Work In Progress / Re: Digital Sculpts - RM Trophy 171020
« on: December 25, 2017, 05:43:58 AM »
There’s a guy at my club who gets me to build bits for him sometimes as he’s partially sited (registered blind).

Every time he gives me an artillery piece my heart sinks. Reminds me of my GW days and having to make old one eye for kids >_<

He wants the new Rubicon plastic ones, so I won’t mind that ;)

Making a warlord metal artillery piece is just as interesting.

Interesting move.

From what I can see, heer46 is the customer and Rubicon is the company contracted  to create the model for them and making the master model. This seems to be separate from any of their own kits.

Rubicon are a design company afterall ;) I think that’s why they push the boundaries of model making so much as their 1/56 plastic range essentially becomes their portfolio.

Probably just empty. It saves on mould costs.

I guess it could be done by extending the fenders. I think it’s on their radar, but not high priority.

I’d much rather have an M32 though.

DD tanks has a completely different lower hull which also affects the mid/top of the hill too. As well as the screen.

I think that’s more of a new kit than an expansion.

Work In Progress / Re: Jagdpanzer 38 Hetzer - NEW Expansion Kit?? 171218

If it means I could potentially get an M32 expansion for my shermans I’ll be more than happy.

Personally, I have nothing against paper (or mild steel) panzers but I think it’s that which has caused the debate, and not the process.

You can argue all day whether imor not it was made/saw service or if the kit is worthwhile from a commercial standpoint.

But what none of us can deny is that this things looks pretty damn cool.

And as UVS pointed out and Rubicon’s explanation of wanting to package expansions for multiple variants, it looks like this might not be the main reason behind the kit.

I just don’t get the hatred for this on here and the Facebook pages.

While thinking about another M3 derived vehicle,  I was reminded of the Canadian Grizzly. Similar to a US built M4A1, there are a few differences.
http://the.shadock.free.fr/sherman_minutia/manufacturer/m4a1mlw/grizzly.html

Not sure if they could be added to the M4A1 kit.

Need to Re -edit this: [ur]http://ultravanillasmurf.blogspot.co.uk/2016/02/grizzling-m4a5-grizzly.html[/url], the M4A5 is the Ram II.

I have photographs of the example at Southsea somewhere.

Lots of differences between the A1 and the ram I’m afraid. I’d be surprised if they could do it in one kit.

Different hull, tracks, headlights, turret, front sprocket.

Well if they’re doing an 88 with prime mover, they might as well do a long Tom with an m4 tractor ;)

Whereabouts in the world are you? If it’s EU I can help you get hold of kits.

Wish Lists / WC51/WC62
« on: December 14, 2017, 05:42:05 PM »
Does anyone think it’d be possible to do this in one kit? I think probably doubtful as you would need two different flat beds, sides and tarpaulin.

I guess if it was two kits, at least all of the front end is the same!

Had some nice staff car, AT gun and ambulance variants too.

My preference would be the WC62 as a couple companies already do the WC51 and the 1 1/2t truck slot is very lacking for the US army in terms of gaming.

There’s another manufacturer who will probably be doing this at some point next near.
