Dated: December 31, 2009.
Having just visited your website, I would like to say how much I recently enjoyed building kit 99016 which has left me with the two PzIII Ausf J s in the attached JPEGs - taken on a piece of well worn medium density fibreboard (MDF) masquerading as desert.
I thought that the kit - purchased from a hobby stand at a traction engine festival here in Gloucestershire, England, this Fall - was very reasonably priced and moulded in refreshingly sturdy plastic compared with the flimsy offerings of some British manufacturers. The instructions, too, were simple to understand and the architecture of the kit not needlessly complicated.
I was also pleased to find someone offering these early World War II German tanks as I was hoping to use them with trains and aircraft from a similar Epoch on my new portable model railway layout which I take to exhibitions. ( see link below for details )
I also liked the artwork on the front of the box which reminded me of when Revell used to offer kits in "frameable" topped boxes. As my own two PzIII Ausf J's are to be just-ex-factory machines the lack of decals was not a problem and the overall paint I used - on the recommendation of my local model shop - was Revell Email colour Matt 86.
Happy New Year!
All the best,
Many thanks to Mr. Drewett.
