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
