Noughts & Crosses and the Owl is out in daylight. ;-) "Should be wearing sunglasses."
That lady at the top of those steps does not seem happy at all.
Perhaps her old man climbing the steps has been on the drink?
Or has she locked herself out of the flat?
That is the best way for Germans to shoot people against a wall.
With a camera.
Nicely done Wiking. :thumbup: BB

@ FredG
The cat is in the house. :-D
Has something to do with a missing drilled hole and a trumpet.
Long story.

Hmm, no pics! Same trouble on a BB-thread, but there I just clicked on "image" and I got the pic, here nothing happens. Can be my very bad German, but I don't think so.

What a nice dio, like a movie. :yeah:

May I ask how you rate the Marseval tank destroyer, Sova-M's first plastic kit?
From what I saw online so far, it seems to be a short-run kit.
How did the parts fit? Was the assembling affected disadvantageously?

I have a soft spot for WWII Romanian forces and try to built an appropriate 1/72 army since long.
Sadly we are not blessed with good products regarding this topic in our scale.
The Hät Infantry were a major disappointment when they came out 12 years ago. Only Zvezda managed to give us a few though brilliant figures lately. Hope Pegasus, Caesar, Waterloo, Strelets or Haron will add some more Romanian & Hungarian WWII grunts one day! :-)

I find these figures at a seller in Antwerpen a few years ago.
The stuff with the figures and her work catch my interest.
Search at the seller: Tracks&Troops.
The Resin is hard. Surface of the figures is flat and shiny.
Details are good. Accept superglue, primer, paint well.

With Military Wheels (MW).
Spurs of the wheels, swing arms are identical with the T 60 of MW. And these are copies of UM T70 wheels and tracks.

How did the parts fit?

I only use the chassis, hull and the two halves who cover the gun. As the side shields. And exhaust.
My track are from ACE T60 (rubber band very fine, accept superglue very well). The wheels I use are thinned UM T70 as the swing arms. Also original parts :-D . The running gear I use from ACE T60 kit. There are nicely two options with the kit. :yeah:
Gun is from an Trumpeter Stug III (There are several surplus with these Trumpeter kit in a very good quality). Hex bolt at the front plate I add on. As the open hatch and the mesh at the rear end.
I ask me how they know the rear of the Maresal. I find only three pic (2x front and a 45° all b/w pic).
The only trouble in fitting was the chassis and the upper hull at the rear end. Duty for the cutter knife.

Was the assembling affected disadvantageously?

If you use only the kit parts I would recommend YES.
Some sanding and fitting tests was needed. As short run quality is.
Fitting was similar an MW, old ACE or Eastern Express kit.


Sadly we are not blessed with good products regarding this topic in our scale.

I agree.


The Hät Infantry were a major disappointment when they came out 12 years ago.

I agree totally.


Only Zvezda managed to give us a few though brilliant figures lately.

Yes, you are right.


Hope Pegasus, Caesar, Waterloo, Strelets or Haron will add some more Romanian & Hungarian WWII grunts one day! :-)

Me too.

Thank you all very much for watching, nice commends and support as questions.

( Sorry about you not being able to see my photographs Gunnar, I pressed all the ralitive buttons ;-) )

Seems very fishy to me that,that Pussy-Cat has disappeared leaving not so much as a whisker here.
Santi could certainly identify with the guy welding that's for sure. BB

hooooo man...man! wiking did it again.
You konw...there is always that turtle that interpose in the picture.
What can I say, everything is too much good. But what fascinates me in this work is the garage door with its rails.
The picture number four this for January in a modelers calendar. :yeah:
