Good to see you back in production.....Truth to be told though, I'd much prefer to see you turn your attention to something a bit more real and there's still some good openings for major vehicles with fairly minor modifications (by your standards).

So, how about a 1/72 Humber Mk.IV Armoured Car conversion kit for the Hasegawa kit?

Or if you don't fancy that, how about a Daimler Mk.I set for Hasegawa's other 1/72 British AC kit.....It'd be a simple set, but a godsend for modellers and wargamers alike?

Just a thought, all the best

Those two Armored cars might have a place later on,
please send pic's of the variant(s) that you are pointing out.
Show me the differences.
Keep in mind though....
I'm a tracked vehicle guy....
something with wheels has to realy catch my eye,
before I'll even think about it.
Like Giesbers Models......T-18E2 Boarhound Armored Car.

The difference between this and my Zerstorer are.....
Mine is based on the PzKpfw V (Panther)
This one is based on the E-100!
It is a massive beast,
Bigger that the Elefant.
It would take a Lot of rubber to mold this...lol

Who is this Tim of which you speak?

The Humber Mk.IV would involve a bit of work, primarily a new turret:

Humber Nk.IV

This is a really major vehicle, and it just ain't available in 1/72.

The Daimler Mk.I would require less work; mantlet engine deck etc.

Daimler Mk.I
http://www.warwheels.net/Daimler1INDEX.html

This was the variant that did virtually all of the fighting during WWII!

The Hasegawa kit is of the Mk.II which was introduced very late in the war:

Daimler Mk.II

Come on dude.....Surely these vehicles (in which men fought and died) are much more worthy of your hard work than the fevered scribblings of Nazi fantasists!
