Hi,

I just want to present my new Master in 1/72.It will be produced and released by MPK Modellbau from Switzerland.The tracks will be fabricated on a machine,because for accuracy,the hand made is to poor.The resin cast of the small tracks will be very flexible,so that they can't break.Two versions will come out,one for the hotter regions and one for the western campain.Each version has two individual figures.Sorry for the quality of the pictures,for me it's a problem to fotograph white pieces.Ok,let's go with the pictures.

Hi Michel

It's great to see such a fine piece of scratch-building. The pics show what an amazing job you've done (although I know what you mean about white being difficult to photograph!)

Regards

Alex

I always like to see this type of works in the forum. It is very interesting how to make a commercial model.

Congrats.

Pedro.
