Ooh, goody! 8)

Hope I can get one from BNA soon! Been wanting a Crusader III for a while, now! :D

Only question is "When will someone do a full interior for it?" With the hatches open there's a LOT visible inside that tank.

Well Its a hell of a start on the Crusader line. The Mk 1/MkII had heaps more produced. Although there is really nothing fundamentally too wrong with the Italeri offerings.

But.. elephant in the room... still no Daimler Armoured Car.

The 1/35 Bf109 is already getting some "flak" on LSP and a couple of other sites. I can understand the hate if the scale had been 1/48...

I'd guess that most of the "flak" is related to the scale.

However, I can see where Border Models, & a few others who are producing 1/35 aircraft, are coming from. Their target market isn't the traditional 1/32 aircraft modellers, it's the 1/35 armour modellers, who now have aircraft in the correct scale to set in dioramas with their vehicles. Plus, if they want to do an aircraft diorama, they don't have to source relatively rare 1/32 figures to go with them.

Compared to the 1/35 armour market, the 1/32 aircraft market is tiny, so producing aircraft in the more popular scale ain't a stupid business move.
