Yeah, I agree. Stowage can be a separate kit. The odd extra track length or Jerry can could be included if there's room left on the sprue.

Another vote for stowage as a separate kit, as it would be great to have these items available to use on some our existing models. It would also keep the cost of the armor models down for those that just wanted the basic unit.

I think I`m in agreement with everyone else, just stowage. If at a later date you decide to do a crew set, then so be it :)

did you consider maybe add some helmets that can hang on tank like that crew did leave them? and maybe some water cantines ?

I like all the ideas but still would like trailer in kit, perhaps with a cold start tank set tools  and a welder all the sort of goodies that would make mission objectives.
Cheers.

I agree that stowage should be separate kit... Much useful should also be a crew kit with tank commanders and drivers that fit into your models. Using those of other manufacturer is difficult and there is not much choice... I have 5warlord Willis all with the same driver and I had to work a lot to change the head or arm to give a little variation...

Apart from the wheel to the right of the Panzer IV wheel (is it meant to be a Panzer III wheel?), these are totally awesome!  Please release this set as soon as you can!

We will have the StuG III wheel instead of this one... just for placement only!   :)

Very nice a few shackle pins would really finish this set.

Hey, niceā€¦I've been looking forward to this  set.  The tracks, spare wheels and jerrycans will be especially useful. 

I suppose it's too late to say it, but the ends of the oil barrels should be sunken more.  And I wish the soft stowage wasn't quite so obviously copied from the 1/48 scale Tamiya pieces.

When is the release date?

Looking good!
I certainly will buy a few of those.

At long last an accessories pack for 28mm/ 1:56 :-)

Well done Rubicon, keep up the good work!

Cheers
