Guess what arrived Friday?
Since I've been working a lot lately, and not home half the time, the above hasn't really had the close exam I usually give a new chunk of armor, but it's at the house itching to plow over whatever hapless action figures are on my customs bench and can be used as obstacles.
I looked at the tank a bit, my god it's huge, hyper detailed, and the paintjob in the pics is worse than it appears in person. I know a couple guys not even repainting theirs because they feel that's a sufficient deco.
It's a beast though... Far larger than my Tiger I (obviously). Side-by-side, they'll be a sight to behold. I want to get the Sherman then... To have stood against one of these would've taken balls the size of churchbells. Hell, any tank would be intimidating, but when you're used to seeing certain ones, and then this thing breaks out of the forest into a cleaing in front of you, I can only fathom what it would've done to morale... Yet like so many other German weapons it was an overengineered nightmare... and yet, it's a tank that held revolutionary concepts used in armor today.
My tank shelf grows. I cannot wait (and not even sure what choice to make) for my next piece. This is toy crack.
