Bah!  Wrong scale! :(

Well we wee scaler's cannot get the cool Trumpeter Me 509.

You know what, there should be a law that all WHIF models must be available in both 1/72 and 1/48. 
Work in progress ::

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

The Tortoise is a surprise to be sure.  Great to see a company going out on a limb with a 35th scale project that isn't a paper panzer for a change.

Martin Kovac has posted some images of his Meng Model 1/35th scale Vs.Kfz.617 Minesweeper (kit number SS001) at Missing-Lynx forums. 

This is such an odd looking vehicle that looks like it escaped from some science fiction film and not an actual design from WW2.

I agree 100%.  It could also be a WW1 creation.  It always looks like it is going the wrong way to me though.  Would have been something to see in action.

BTW, the finishing on that model is incredible.  Photograph it the right way, and people would think it were real life rather than a model.

Here's hoping that Meng will consider producing some of the WW2 era US prototype tanks like the T20-22-23, T25, T14 and the T28/95 super heavy in 1/35 scale. The Tortoise gives me hope for some Allied whiffery to counter all the paper panzers we've seen in recent years.

  I hope to kit the Katsudori one of these days-but I couldn't help but be tickled looking at the build-ups
 on the Meng site. They look neat, but what caught my eye was the intake, which features a compressor
 face.... ;D
