Strange, the obsession with white pinstripes!

Those are parade markings, and the way most people would have seen these vehicles, especially in the west.

On the Trumpeter/HobbyBoss Facebook page...................HB Leopard 1.jpg
Nice to see a Leopard I...............
On the Zvezda Facebook page, announcement of a BM-21 'Grad' in 1/35. Only CAD renderings, so far, which I won't post. Pity about the choice, Trumpeter do two versions of this already.

Those Aussie decals look colourful - I wouldn't think easy to apply.............

Looked at the "picture tag" discussion - not voted, because I have no interest in that thread, so I never look at it! Simple!
I always credit the pictures to their source - usually makers' website, or Facebook page, and if I am guilty of copyright violation, then so is every modelling forum/website on the internet!
Judging by the nearly 6000 hits since I started this thread, and no complaints from members, I'll plod along as normal.
Anyway, enough of that nonsense - an unusual ( for me ) spot, a T34/85 in 1/35 from Italeri, on their websiteit t34-85 01.jpg
PE parts, full interior, choice of tracks - it says 100% new mould.
Is it me, or does that barrel look extra long?

Ignore all that and keep posting , I for one love reading about the new issues and how thinking I'd never live long enough to do them all .
Does look very long, maybe just the angle , or the artist got a little carried away.:smiling4:

As a by the by this is a link to a YouTube vid YouTube Panther The Trumpeter 1/16 Panther, and what is in the box - now, that's BIG I'd have to convert the spare bedroom to build it, let alone display it over 2000 parts & a complete interior - whew! Prices seem to be around the £275-300, which I suppose isn't bad value for the size of the thing
Dave
Nice looking kit Dave but if you really want BIG try a Dragon 1/6 - I stupidly bought one of their M4A3's but don't have the room to build it.
The turret is approx 1ft diameter - rubbish kit though. It will need a total rebuild

Oh that Jagdpanther! I passed it several times a day when I worked at the IWM (on the way to the nearest toilets).
