Excellent! Doubley nice because it's scratchbuilt and French. Did you construct each track link or cast them? Either way I don't envy you the task, I hate small pitch tracks.

Many thanks for your kinds words Rex!

Uselly I specialize in the US armor http://manu-military.e-monsite.com) but this one was a special "order" from the french manufacturer Blitz who wanted a bigger model as a kind of showcase to enhance his knowledge in casting resin.

Cheers from Normandy!

Hello Stephen,

I feel pretty honored to receive such kind words from you because I know your works in 1/9 scale.
Actually, a friend of mine made 11 tracks shoes. I just had to slightly modify them to make the final necessary adjustments and get them cast in resin by the French manufacturer Blitz.
135 of them are required per side.
Many many thanks for your comments!

Cheers from Normandy!

Emmanuel,
Very nice scratch work and the finish really says "French". Great job! Where did you get the plans from or did you draw them up? (guess I should have looked at Part I first, looks like you scaled the smaller model)

Superb work Emanuele!
I love this vehicle and recently finished Blitz's 1:35 version - does this mean we might see a 1:16 version too?
Lets hope so! My compliments of some very fine work.

Many thanks Paul!

This is right that I mainly scaled up by 2.1875 times the 1/35 scales dimensions.
Somtimes with checking the measurements with drawings but most of the times with actual photos of the vehicle.

Cheers from Normandy!

Many thanks Andy!

As said, I mainly scaled up the 1/35 Blitz model.
I'll go have a look at your site too when I have more time.

Cheers from Normandy!
