HLJ still has it as pre-order, and Lucky Model is out of stock.

As far as I know the kit hasn't hit a global distribution system yet and no mainstream vendors seem to have it.

Don't know anything about the kits however as the subjects don't interest me.

Hi Roy,

The Takom T29E4 is a different tank compared to the T29E1 by Hobby Boss.

and not much difference between them, mostly the sighting/range finding systems. Only a few T29s built overall, all prototype/test vehicles. No production variants.

So, how many of the late war heavy US prototypes are in plastic now?

Not everything in Crismon or Hunnicutt, but after all the scratchbuilding I thought I'd have to do, a lot of stuff to keep busy with, without piecing things together from all the old trashed Italeri and DML kits I squirreled away!

Tom...can't answer your question but...did you post...

over on ML something to the effect about these US test subject heavy tanks meant you didn't need your Italeri M-47's for scratchbuilding projects now? Just wondering I'm looking for a complete Italeri M-47 for a project and I don't want to sell off our daughter for one:) Mike mmlriedeman@comcast.net

Having said that, the T29 is a personal interest for as I just like how it looks.
