For dubious history (and I mean really dubious) and doubtful testimonies (gotta love the first one as its a real crack-up . I think maybe the guys medication got stopped at the boarder and hes not quite as lucid as he could be).

Panzer Ive gotta say I am a fan of the early Tigers and this is as good as it gets for me (well the very early s.Pz.Abt.503 Tiger 323 would really do me or any around Southern Russia in late 42/early 43).
DML have generated a lot of hype but based on pre-release hard info this is not going to be a let down kit. Only very few are going to know the faults (and at this stage they are only details not quality issues).
Two of these and two of those please (those being AFVs late Tiger which should give us an idea of current kit technology).
Steve

Ah...theres the "SGF" word again. I wonder if Dragon knows what it stands for and how the reviewer categories their potential buyers?

The guy's knowledge of German tanks is lacking
He obviously has a bias...quote below from
http://www.dragonmodelsltd.com/html/6252-reviews.htm

Quote:
"Before I proceed any further, let me state up front that I personally hate Tigers. I find them to be a tiresome subject, long espoused on by SGFs as the most wonderful tank ever made, a wonder weapon, best tank of the war, etc. None of that is true, but you cannot get the faithful off message even when their myths are exposed."
How about we call people who like T-34's Drooling Communist Zealots (DCZ).?
or...
Dribbling Russian Nut (DRN)
maybe
Slavering Partisan Slavs (SPS)


any other suggestions- maybe we should have a give away contest- like some cheapy Russian T-60 tank or something for the best acronymn! Ha ha
:lol:

edit: I have several T-34's in the inventory included the underway 1/16th Trumpeter version. Its all good

The more I read that reveiw of his the more he sounds like a troll starting a flame war.

"Anyone interested in the "blow by blow" is directed to Osprey/New Vanguard #5"
Hello! Looking to cross promote products here? Osprey's book will not help you here (good read while doing number 2s) as something along the lines of D.W. to Tiger I will. I think there was to much "SGF" in Jentz's book for "SOF".

A big thank you to Terry for getting this review out so quickly. Also to Dave Parker for his shots over on ML.

I've got my baby's bib out just to catch all my drool. This is my fav version of this Cat and I am going to be treated to modeling bliss.
