Default Wow!!!

Hey All ..... Did any of you know that Christian (Ludwig) is nearly finished with both his 1/16 Valentine and Matilda?.. he just sent me these Pix...

The Valentine looks really good!..


And the Matilda is something I will have to purchase when finally ready... I am quite excited about this one,,,


I have his Sd.Kfz 251/D, his Hetzer and his Awesome Cromwell.. all with the 3D accessories sets... (well the Sd.Kfz251/D and Hetzer sets are still unfinished, but they are coming).... Well I am going to add the Matilda to it.... then possibly the Churchill.. or the Crusader...both are very very cool.... if you do not know his shop it's :

http://www.ludwigs-hobby-seite.de/flohmarkt.html

He is German, but he communicates well in English... and his site is full of great 1/16 RC Tank Kits.. Many of which no one else has... especially his British
Tanks.. Not only does he make The two listed above.. he also has the Cromwell, and the Comet, Churchill, Firefly, Centurion, and the Challenger II...

That is just his British products..

He also does lots of German, Russian and American kits.. Plus multinational Trucks and Half Tracks..

So take a look if you are interested....

Thanks, Joe

and there is more.. Ok here are a few more in the works... I suppose we all recognize the Neubaufahrzeug... but how about the other one? I think its an M48 Patton!!! Very cool if it is,, I always wanted one of those.. I guess it all goes back to my early days.. and the Shepard Paine diorama days... btw, Christian just emailed me that yes it is an M48 Patton... I guess we all have something to look forward to this year... Happy 2017

Very interesting! Still very new to the hobby but I was wondering where all the British armor might be. Thank you for sharing as I am now planning to take my time browsing through that website.

Oh most of us know Christian, his work is very cool & I've seen a few up close Cromwell is especially nice.

A Matilda you say...

Like I said, I have the SdKfz 251/D, the Hetzer and the Cromwell...There is a level of difficulty involved with his kits, but if you take your time and follow the instructions it doesn't

seem too difficult...and they are a bit pricey.. but I purchased mine in pieces so it didn't hurt too much... and where else can you get these tanks?

I am especially excited for both the Matilda and the M-48....

I have built his Lowe kit and Enigma kit. I have also bought the Jagd E-100 kit from him and many other items, he is first class people and makes a great product, but his kits present a greater level of difficulty. I have already told him I want one of his first M-48 kits!!!

Love the Matilda II (the Queen of the desert) but an M48? THAT is great news!

Now all I need is the M47 and I would be finished buying tanks.

Also, I'm having a 1/16 RC Panzer II F and an M3 Recovery tank conversion kit being 3D printed..., but that is later this year.. but the beginnings have

been started..

The M3 Conversion kit is for that grossly undersized Hungarian M3 Lee (Turret) Conversion kit.... the turret for the Lee is pretty wonky, and to fix it is a pretty

big undertaking.. basically its too much trouble for a Lee... so since I already have the M3 Lee Conversion kit.. it was either turn it into the Weapons Carrier or

the Recovery Tank versions... I like them both but the M31 won in the end.. Then I will stop buys these things...
