In 43rdRecceReg's post about his Stug, I was asking about 1/16 radios. Although there is stuff available on Shapeways, from a Painless thread, I found this seller on evilbay. He has a big range of 1/16 military and workshop stuff and the prices are much cheaper than those offered on the 3d printing sites. I've ordered a couple of pieces and will let you know the quality when they arrive.

Here are some bits as examples:

German radio.

Russian tank machine gun.

Various handwheels.

Looks like a promising source. I might well consider acquiring a radio of that (apparent) quality for the projected StuG IV build...that's if I go for the sporty open- topped tourer version that is ..
Do give us your appraisal, Estniche, when the bits land on your doormat. The ones In the recent Nashorn builds have certainly added that extra eye-catching detail; that which makes a model stand out from its rivals :)

Good afternoon,
I have nothing but praise for Diorama Freaks wares. I have used them on many builds. Give them just a little cleanup and they really add shine to a detail job. I've included a pic of the drivers hatch I used on the Crackerbox Palace build as an example of what might be found. Delivery is cheap and swift and I've not been disappointed in what I received.

So here are the bits I bought off Uwe, a Russian tank MG and a German radio.


The body of the radio is resin, and came with the antenna, revolver, wire, headphones and handles.

The MG will need a little work as the magazine is not perfect and the end of the barrel is bent. I suspect that's why he threw in an extra of each. Here is the real thing.

Not perfect, but for the price they are great value. I could not have made anything that detailed, so I'm a winner.
