New stuff for 1/48 armor modellers

Steve Faxon of Faxon Conversions recently announced his latest product:  1/48 PantherTurm.  This all resin kit will allow you to build one of the Panther turreted pillboxes seen in Italy and on the West Wall among other places.  Below are some pics of the kit.  When ordering, customers can choose one of three turrets to go with the box.  Not shown in the photos is the turned metal gun barrel that will also be included.  Price will be around $30.00 plus shipping.  You can see other Faxon conversions by clicking on the following link:  Faxon Conversions The kit should be available in about 10 days or so.  All photos courtesy of Steve Faxon.

Holy crap! I still have a blog?!

Wow!  It's been nearly 3 months since I last updated this thing.  And another month and a half since I updated my main site.  Well, I've been kinda busy with things.  I've been selling a model collection for a friend of mine.  Lots of kits, books and accessories.  Here are the links to the sales pages:
Vehicles and aircraft
and Book

I'm also trying to get my third manuscript done and have been giving tours at the Military Vehicle Technology Foundation.  I'll try to get back on track with updates here and at Toadman's Tank Pictures real soon.
