Can anyone shed light on the availability of the following Mirage Kits, were they in fact actually produced?

Series 6
72650 German Command Tank, Befehlspanzer III E
72651 Beobachtungspanzer III F, German OP tank

Series 8
72851 German Escort Tank Pz. IV A Poland 1939
72852 German Tank Pz.Kpfw. IV B
72853 Pz.Kpfw. IV C, Normandy 1944
72854 Pz.Kpfw. IV D, Blitzkrieg in the West
72855 Pz.Kpfw. IV E, Fall Barbarossa 1941
72856 German Tank Pz.Kpfw. IV E "Tropenpanzer"*

*this is obviously an error as it is the D that I have at the moment.

If all these were done and they are available, some of us can complete a full range of Pz IVs.

Thanks, all the best,

Paul

Hi Paul,
I have kits:
72853 Pz.Kpfw. IV C, Normandy 1944
72856 German Tank Pz.Kpfw. IV D "Tropenpanzer"

Both are excellent kits. I bought 2 of the Ausf C as the Minenraumer IV is based on the Ausf C.

I do hope they come out with the other versions of Panzer IV (early ones) as well as the BeOpWg and BefelsWg IIIs.

Hi Tony,

I like my D and hope to get the C soon. It would be nice if they completed the list I posted, you should recognise it from the back of the box for the D. I also have a Military Modelling from a few years ago that also lists these as being produced, at the Mirage stand at the Nurnburg Toy Fair. We live in hope.

All the best,

Paul

Well we've waited a bloody long time!

Hi David,

Keep the faith, they probably will be like busses - takes ages for one to turn up then three come along at once (you might not get this, as it is a British phenomenon).

All the best,

Paul

is too enthusoiastic for its resources. I notice also with Mirage's M3 medium tank series, that it had a few variants advertised that were never released! To bad, I would love to see their M3 ARV come out too.

Recently Track & Troops have advertised on their website M3 Kuybyshev, which had been never released.

Mirage had agreement with some chinesee manufacturer, but deal blew off. Mirage even advertised SdKfz 250.
