Scale Models Megathread

Recommended Posts

Trumpeter do (or are about to do) Kondensator in 1/35:

I believe it's priced at about the £100 mark in the UK, so only about 50% more expensive than my 1/72 kit.

 

However you still can't have what I'm hoping to buy next month, Kondensator's older & bigger brother:

Trumpeter needs to change their logo to this:

Shame that they are the only source for a lot of Soviet subject matter.

Compared to kits I grew up with?

They aren't THAT bad.

What's annoying is how good they could be if they tried (they've done it before) and how good they should be at the price (the Trumpeter and Modelcollect 1/72 T-80s are the same price).

Agreed, current makers could really step things up , but I suspect a lot of their management is still somewhat stuck in the 1960's.

In awe at the size of this lad. Shame that Grigorov doesn't work in 1:35th scale, he has a ton of unique stuff.

 

Just for you, Kondensator's tube vs. a M48A3 hull, both in 1/72:

*takes Tiger and put Soviet flag on it

*put "SA" on the side

*Profit!

 

Is that a HH60, a MLRS and a (I don't know what) tank with Russian markings?

Finally found the tracks to continue working on the M4A2 that @Jeeps_Guns_Tanks sent me 3-4 years ago. Still a work in progress, but this seemed like too cool a shot to miss.

 

Now all I need is an M4A3 and M4A4 and I'll have at least the major basic Shermans covered. Still wish someone made a Ram that wasn't a hilariously expensive resin kit. Also I maybe I can scratch build an M4A6 from an M4A4 and some spares... I should really stop thinking about buying new kits while I have a whole closet of existing ones.
