Original kit from 1995, maybe the only Tadpole 1/35 available right now (the Takon version is out of stock everywhere), this is not a Tamiya or Trumpeter model so the fiting is not the best, It needed a fair amount of work to produce a good fin[...]
These are photos of my fathers collection in his 'man cave' out the back of his garage. He has been modeling since he was young and would have made his first kit back in the 1950s. He has finally decided that its time for his collection to go, a[...]
This is the Academy Stug IV. Pretty simple kit, but at 1/2 the price of other similar kits on the market its pretty good. Went together well and wnen it's all finished it definitely looks like it's ready for action.

I really like Sherman with cast hull. This is a Firefly from Guards Arm. Div., 5 Guards Arm. Brig., 5 Btl. Coldstream Guards, ASqn 2C.

I hope you like it, best[...]
