Just when I thought I’d got over my Berlin Brigade issue, along comes this temptation,
This kit just hit HobbyEasy this morning for $51.35 on pre-order.
Great! Just when I’m trying to reduce my stash!
LOL, well looks like I’m going to lose this morning browsing around HobbyEase & drinking coffee
@metalhead85 @Armor_Buff Hey gents it’s all part of the wonderful affliction. But don’t grumble to me. I just finished a major shopping expedition this morning and it’s all @Johnnych01 John’s fault. He showed me the photo of the Panzir AA system 8 wheeled truck on the 8 Wheeler Campaign Forum and I fell in love. Having heard such rave reviews of new Zvezda kits, I decided to set myself up for a new adventure for my birthday coming up September 2nd. So I ordered the Zvezda Panzir kit from HobbyEasy and then went google shopping on ebay for accessories. I found a bunch of cool stuff! I got the Miniarm resin wheels, of course, but I also found a brand new Quinta Studios set of 3D color printed interior & exterior decals for the dash and logos. Also I discovered a previously unknown to me Russian company called Microdesigns that does beautiful large photo etched sets for Russian kits for $19.99. They have a main set for the Panzir and a walkway grating set. Of course I ordered both. I have never used any of these brands before except Miniarm, so I’m excited to see what the postman brings in about a month. So, it’s been a busy morning on the computer, but I’m on a modeler’s high right now having acquired all this cool stuff for a project. I love it when a plan comes together. Happy man here.
I’ll believe it when I see plastic!!
Been down THIS road to excitement before.
Matt doesn’t Trumpy make one too? Or is that a different version?
Very nice Matt… I haven’t even ordered mine yet…and close birthdays… Mines 28th August
You are right Rich, Trumpeter makes one and so does Tiger Models. Both are significantly more money. I wanted to give a Zvezda modern release a chance. We’ll see if my $48.13 was well spent.
Oh wow! I’ll just have to come over to celebrate together one year soon!
Yes let us know how it goes when you start the build
When Quinta decals and Microdesign PE frets arrive, you’ll be more than happy.
@ayovtshev Thanks Angel, I know I can take your word for it. Glad to know I’ve ordered quality products!
Great news, this was talked about a few years back but it disappeared, I’d presumed due to the proliferation of Takom Chieftains around the same time, so fingers crossed this time around.
I can hopefully see a battle of the prices between this and the Takom ones… Fingers crossed in my favour lol
