Cheers
Colin

Re: What's Next?

To be fair, Japanese armour hardly existed :lol: Nashorn, more interesting :D At the end of the day (despite rumours to the contrary with the StuIG 33b), to be cost effective, the guys have got to make stuff that was well used & is likely to sell in quantity - just to cover the cost of the moulds. S...
