I agree Ropi. While building an accurate model is important to me, sometimes playing with an old kit is nice for the sheer fun of not being concerned (too much) with accuracy and just having fun...

I'd like to find a set for my 1/16 T-34. Other than that if I ever do a Tiger I might do Friuls on it, or maybe a Panther G. Otherwise I'm content with plastic links.

Yes, that's what I've seen too KuK...seems the Fruils aren't much more than the Modelkastens. I have not yet used either, though my Dragon Panther D has Modelkastens, and I think my Dragon Panzer IV...
