    I noticed on the GPM web site that WAK are releasing a 1/25 model of the Panzer II Ausf L Luchs (Lynx) in March.

    Looks like WAK are positioning themselves for niche armour models
    when you consider their offerings so far:

    Autoblinda AB-41
    Porsche Tiger
    Panzer I Ausf F

    The Panzer I model looks pretty impressive - no interior but lots of exterior
    detail. It looks quite well engineered as well.

    Regards,

    Charlie

    I have the Tiger - although no interior also, it is rather impressive looking (at least flat on the pages!). A lot of detail and the graphics are very sharp! I continually keep my eye out for more WAK offerings!

    WAK Autoblinda AB-41 does have complete interior.
    Looks like it's a captured Italian machine used in
    North Africa by the Polish Carpathian Lancer outfit
    around Tobruck (sp). Strangely it uses three sand
    tires (two as spares) and three highway tires.
    Four pages of diagram instructions.

    We have also in our offer polish half-track armoured car WZ.28 (with interior) - interesting sample of pre-WW2 armoured cars.

    In 2007 we plan to publish 4-6 "panzer" models - Axis, Allied and probably one from WW1.

    I have the WAK Wz.28. Very nice kit. Registration and coloring are beautiful. Lots of interior detail. High up in my "to do" pile.

    A syncronbuild, eh?
    Yes, I am, but are you willing to wait for me?

    The only problem is that you can get it just as soon as its available and I have to wait a year for it to be available here in the US.
    If I was able to order direct it would cost me twice the model price for shipping.:cry:

    I priced the new Modelik models coming out and they would cost me triple the price of the model to get them now.
    I would rather wait a year and get them here and only have to pay a couple dollars for shipment.
