What the postman brought today (Armorama)

Last entries in the stash:

I am impressed about figures, very fine and detailled, one of the best reference for modern british soldiers in styrene in my mind. Optionnal torso and heads is a very good idea.
Sagged resin wheels from Fat Frog Scale Models for the quad and its trailer to replace the wheels from Bronco because those one are too narrow.

No where near as exciting as a kit … But to help make the kit and finish it …

Thought it looked neat … Will probably break or frustrate me within a couple of days and I will smash it to pieces lol

Comes with 6 rolls from 24mm to 2mm but takes an extra Tamiya 6mm roll …

Snap, brother gave me one, feel it takes more time to get a piece of it, then to just unravel tape and cut.

Yeah I can see what you mean… Will give it a go and see how I get on with it …:+1:

I have this currently in transit. Finally found a set of tracks that will look good on my Tamiya 251/1 Ausf D.

Thanks for the info, but I’ll be making a soft top version :+1:

Nice vehicle !
There are 4 very nice update set packs from Accurate Armour, each one with a time frame, depending what equipment you want to see on the vehicle.
They allow to resolve several inacurracies of the kit.

I built the Asuka kit about 5 years ago. It’s a really nice kit!

That is good to know. I only will put a metal barrel and tracks on it.
I also consider getting a metal towing cable…

Good call! The only weak point of the kit was the rubber band tracks

Yes, I have a healthy dislike of rubber band tracks… I just got me a set of Friuls yesterday.
