Do they have one at Bovington Tank Museum?


It seems they do! Here's a photo of it from Wikipedia- CLICK HERE


I think if I ever get back to the old country again I'll have to pay the museum another visit (used to be about 30 minutes down the road from where I used to live)

Cool stuff.
I have to admit, I was disappointed with this company when it first came out. With a name like "amusing hobby" I was hoping for something more...amusing. Like tanks with big running shoes for tracks, or planes with butterfly wings, that kind of stuff.
 ;)
But they've done some great subjects, so my slighted feelings have been massaged into complacency.

Via The Sprue News.

Amusing Hobby has announced a big JagdPanther II in 1/35 scale.  The new kit is slated for a November 2016 release, and looks like another great looking "paper" panzer to display.





Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

The JagdPanther II is looking very nice. I can see that as part of Patton's 3rd Army (Composite) fighting the Soviets somewhere in Germany in the winter of 1946-47 as they try to hold them back.

Thanks (and payments...in the jar) will be accepted since I purchased a resin conversion kit of this a few months back.

I'm sure this is one of the reasons I don't do resin kits/conversions. ;D

Boy, somebody sure had a big stack of napkins to doodle on.  ;D
Or maybe it was tissue paper on a roll. ;D

Napkinwaffe is my preferred term for Luft'46, I'll have to figure out an appropriate term
for the, on some levels even more nonsensical, armour "designs".
 ;D >:(

I have it Bumfwagens;D

Needs to be jammed together into a single word:
Sonderservietteeinsatzkommando '46

 ;D

Still prefer mine as the designs really are just bumf*.  ;D :icon_fsm:

*For those not familiar with the term:
bumf = bum-fodder = documents whose only practical use is for wiping one's fundament.  ;D
