For those who have been paying attention, I got back into kit-building with the Esci Churchill, and the Airfix Panther.
So here's some glamour shots... Bert...
And Ernie - with his little Pal.. 1/72 Airfix Panther vs 1/285 GHQ M3 Half track.
Guess which one is a more accurate model, has more detail, and requires less assembly ? Compared to the Esci kit, this is a woefully primitive model. But an hour or so with some modelling putty, zimmerit and stowage, some time in the paint shop.. a couple of figures maybe.. and it should look alright on a wargames table.
And the Caesar US and German sets arrived from Taiwan today... really great service. All excited now, and all I have to do is sort out what bases I want to use.
