Some good news and some bad news!

Bad news first!

I got informed from FLGS that they are not able to deliver me the Panzer III L or N at the moment because all their sources are out of stock of that item. This means my objective project is going to take a huge delay which I'm very sad. I had hoped to get it all done by 1st of July but now I fear that even if I somehow could get my order, I won't be able to finish in time due to my other works.

Well when it's done, it's done!

Then the good news!

My Tiger I E has finished it's assembly (almost, I'm missing magnets from the turret as I can't find them anywhere in the house!!). The assembly was really easy and painless. Very limited flash and the hull was very clean.

I tried to add some fuel cans in a rack but couldn't find a place where I'd liked them. I even tried to bent it to fit it behind the turret basket. Otherwise I left t quite bare, no mud guards or sideskirts. This will give some rougnes in comparison to the other two Tiger I Es in my force.

My new German toy has arrived!

Yes it's here!

No, sadly it is not the Panzer III I've been waiting for about a month now through my LGS, but it's big (huge?!) brother Tiger I E, which I ordered last friday from Element Games, arrived today. Fast delivery I'd say!

This new child of mine is going to complete my Atlantik Wall sPzK and will be my third Tiger platoon in my 4.SS Brigade list from Grey Wolf.

I hope to get this baby up and running soon to make room for other to be painted objects in my list, which is a bit too long for my liking. And hopefully I will finish my Soviet infantry at the same time.
