I have been very busy for the past couple of weeks churning out the new models, some of which we bought and some of which were very kindly donated by World war toons, studio roqovan’s James Chung (thank you kindly for that sir)
These tanks will all be used for our group tank game and will join the other 8 shermans and 4 Tigers and will add some nice variation once they have been to the paint shop! They will get a lot of action as they will be used every week. One thing we do like about these models is that they are quite tough and stand up to the rigours of play very well.
……..No, Not Game of Thrones……….World War Toon KV2 Russian Front, Winter!
Its first outing on the table proved to be combustable……….The lend lease Sherman lasted a bit longer!
A very nice model, though, looking forward to the T34’s when they arrive in new year to beef up the russian armoured unit.
Now Winter in the Ardennes……………………..
King Tiger with Ambush scheme Camouflage….not much use in the snow!
Just wanted to let you all know about Domi over at Retrokit who , apart from other things, makes Conversion kits for Meng model/Roqovan World war Toon tanks. I’m going to be using them for my after school club project. The kits themselves are neatly cast in resin, and are designed to fit, in this case, The M4 Sherman.
At the moment you have a choice of M4A3 Sherman Conversion and Rocket Launcher “Calliope” Sherman. Other releases are planned for January, and later in year, with a KV1 Turret, Sturmtiger, Tiger II Henschel Turret confirmed. If you want to keep up with news on these and other releases head over to the retrokit face book page
A lot of other Sherman conversions are planned, and one can only imagine things like JagdTigers, and several different versions based on the new Toon Panzer III model, like a StuG III that might also be on their way at some point…..either way I just can’t wait! I’m going to have to buy a whole lot more World War Toon Tanks just to keep up!
I have 4 weeks before clubs start again, so plenty of time to assemble both versions. I’m sure club members will be fairly interested in converting their kits, a lot of them have been busy buying additional models to add to the Sherman they get in the club….and no doubt santa has also been busy sourcing the new T34’s and Panzer III’s!
So over the next 4 weeks i will be updating my progress as I complete work on these 2 new kits, so watch for updates. but for today I’m going to do a little bit of prep work and remove the resin parts from their sprue, and tidy them up a bit, I’m also intending to have a bash at making some scratch built rockets for the launch tubes on the Calliope version!
