David & Louis, thanks for the kind words!
Yes I am (as is Louis) a former DAT. (DumbAss Tanker) and we’re proud of it! Besides, those beasts can be a Ton-O-Fun … as well as a major pain in the a … behind!
As George mentioned, I was unaware of the 1/100th scale vehicles. I have an extensive (over 300, but not ALL different) collection of the ROCO 1/87th scale (HO) MiniTank vehicles but I didn’t know that anyone made smaller scale vehicles – as opposed to toys.
(Louis, I’m typing this with Al singing about time & felines in my head.)
Great job on that Panther so far, David! I hope your hospital surgery goes extremely well & you’re back home to fun hobbies ASAP. I doubt the horse-pistol Nurses & Doctors would approve of the lovely scent of styrene glues, enamel &/or acrylic paints if it came wafting out the door of your hospital room! Ha! 😉
