To quote Cole Porter...

"In olden days, a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking.
But now, God knows,
Anything goes.

Hi Kevin ( @Panzer-Shop.nl )

Sorry, being serious for a minute.  It would seem that it is prototypical for the Normandy exhaust to be present or absent.  Also, the gun can face forward or aft when travelling by rail.  One question then - on your model, if you rotate the gun to the rear of the tank does it hit the Normandy fairing?

Many thanks

Hi @Paddy ,

It appears to not do that, because the barrel would not reach it.

Hi Kevin, ( @Panzer-Shop.nl )

That looks great, like the mud guards too.  So how does one go about ordering these in 1:150?

Kind regards

Hi @Paddy ,

Do you like it how it is or do you want them with the mudguards? If so I will have to add those to the webshop first. Is no problem, just let me know.

Once you’re ready I will add an article called “addition cost for re-scaling”. If you add that times the amount of vehicles you want in 1:150 and the extra cost is calculated.

Hi Kevin, ( @Panzer-Shop.nl )

That sounds perfect.  I have taken the liberty of sending you a private message with my order requirements.

Kind regards

Hi Kevin, ( @Panzer-Shop.nl )

How is it going with the 1:150 version of the Cromwell?

Hi @Paddy ,

The 1:160 unit is finished:

https://www.panzer-shop.nl/a-58265269/engels/cromwell-iv/

The unit with skirts is in there too.

I will send you a message about the 1:150 model.

Hi Kevin, ( @Panzer-Shop.nl )

Thank you for your reply.  I have sent you a PM to confirm order for 4 x Cromwell IV tanks in 1:150 scale with skirts.

Please do not be offended, but can I ask a question?  The barrel of the gun looks rather thick compared to the real thing - is this simply a limitation of the printing process i.e. to give it sufficient strength?

Looking forward to receiving these.

Merry Christmas

Hi Paddy,

I will tone down the barrel indeed. That was already my plan for the 1:150 model, it will look smaller relatively.

A slight change in focus.

I read some years ago that German Mk III and MkIV tanks travelling by rail on the Eastern front were crewed and powered.  I cannot now find the article but it was quite interesting.  The thrust was that due to partisan attacks the trains needed to be able to defend themselves.  It did not mention bigger tanks but I assume their recoil would be a problem.  I know that later there were MKIV turrets mounted on rail cars for defence.

Does anyone have any information on this.

Hi Folks,

Was thinking of using Humbrol 86 Light Olive Matt to paint the tanks.  Is that a good choice or should I be using something greener?

Kind regards
