2018.1.30 NEW RELEASES; MORE LOVE FOR TAKOM’S LEE, GRANT AND M31 KITS

OK, tax season has me under the gun here.  I must be done this week — period!  Add my outstanding orders and my promise to get the M3/M31 stuff finished and I seem to have celebrated myself into a perfect little booby-trap.  So, I put off the 105 mm Sherman and T6 conversions and just banged these M3/M31 items out.  The other stuff will just have to keep — hopefully I’ll have them on Feb 23.  Until then, I hope this will keep you occupied.  I’ll add more pictures as soon as I can get demo kits built and find some better lights (the new photo booth was a flop).

  1. Hi Joe:

    35-1360 is missing the door stops that prevented the engine doors from hitting the air cleaners. They were in the MWO.

    • Kurt,

      Thanks for the pointer.

      They’re there — but you have to add them yourself. There are 3 of them on a runner at the bottom of the rear hull plate (see picture). I had to do it this way to make the plate ‘universal.’ Otherwise, I need to make 4 rear plates. That is messy on my side in several ways (but still may be necessary if I get too many complaints).

  2. Great stuff, I really like the intercom boxes, these come in handy for many US interiors!
