    I'll tell you what, I think the Soviet tanks are a sorely ignored lot...save for Nobi's T-55 (which, by the way, I have not totally forgotten my build, it's just taken a back seat for a spell while I work on other projects...it will be finished some day, hopefully before year's end), and I think there is a good sized group looking for them, so anything you have on the drawing board would probably be very well received. I personally love the 1/72 size, it fits a pretty nice niche in the armor models I have in the to be built stack.

    Looking forward to seeing further announcements on your progress.

    Cheers!

    Charlie, T numbers - what does it meant? Do you know more about Soviet Tetrarch numbers?

    Loks very impressing!!

    It would be great, if there were more models of many used WWII vehicles, which are very rare as models (the german 8-wheelers Sd.Kfz 233, 232, or some trucks, british gun carriers GMC or Ford and so on...) especially not as overdetailed 1/25 models, with hundreds of parts:grin:.

    If you only could take a few hours every week for your hobby, such large models take a veeery looong time to get finished:rolleyes:

    All British AFVs were identified by a serial number - in the case of tanks this started with "T". The point I was making was that the images of the Tetrach on the Russian Battlefield site still had their British T numbers. The image http://www.battlefield.ru/lend_tank/tetrarch_4.jpg shows this clearly. The W.O. prefix stands for "War Office".It looks like the T numbers were on the right side of the turret and the front plate of the hull. The left side of the turret doesn't seem to have the serial number.

    Regards,

    Charlie

    Tetrarch

    All parts of Tetrarch.

    Model is very small and simple.

    Any chance of your doing some of the more unusual US stuff in 1/72 like a M8 Greyhound, M18 Hellcat, or a M7 Priest?

    I would also be very interested in an M7 Priest...from a personal point of view.
    My Dad, who has since passed away, fought in one under Patton during WWII.

    I have an old plastic kit, but, unfortunately, I have never found a paper kit and doubt it was ever the subject of a paper model before. I would love to build a few out of paper in 1/72 scale out of paper so I could send them to my Brother and Sisters as a remembrance of my Father.

    Cheers!
