Be able to stretch the Japanese themed vehicles a bit further, Panthers, Mk IV. Re-box, re-decal, re-release.

I do like that you get plants as well  ;)

Panther's been done! ;)



They forgot to swap the driver & Radio Operator/Bow Gunner's positions in the Tiger, though!

I'd dreaming about taking teh lower hull and slicing the front & rear track sets into two parts, and then installing them under the Bandai EFGF M353A4 hover truck. But Gingie, what a waste of a kit?! No, because the turret would go on a CB-90 attack boat, complete with dual bbl, although cut way down to represent dual 120mm mortars, similar to real life.

The lower part of the hull, with the track sections, could be sliced. The upper hull would be tough since both the turret ring and some of the supports are right at the joint between the front and rear

No problem, just cut the upper & lower hulls separately as needed & build the needed infill sections from plasticard.  I may give it ago if the kit isn't too expensive to buy ... & if I can find one in my country.

I think they probably mean an aerial bomb as in a bomb dropped from an aircraft...or maybe they have somehow managed to model a fart? ;D

Just noticed it is 1/35.

I know that Helicopters have been coming out in 35th, but this is way more mainstream. How is the reception in the aircraft modelling community in the switch from 32nd?
