If I ask, the German suppliers are happy to remove the VAT also.
For me that little gesture goes part way to offsetting the exchange difference. :'(

Yeah, when i log in with my account, their system recognizes my Canadian shipping address and automatically removes the 19% VAT from all prices, which i do not have to pay. They also charge me 36EU shipping no matter what i purchase (weight and sizes) so i usually package large item purchases from them for a huge shipping discount compared to individual orders.

Looking forward to getting my hands on this. I've got two on pre-order Axle's.

I'm thinking one will end up as the basis of a M4 High Speed Tractor! :think:

I suspect mine will end up more as a reference for the 2 Heng Long Shermans I started cutting down a couple of years ago, the tracks don't look like they will be able to be made durable (unlike the Takom Panzer 1a, possibly?)

Many thanks for the video.
I've got two on preorder from Axel's shop and won't see them before March. :-<
Still wonder how this guy managed to get his. :crazy:

Andy runs a hobby shop and this is a pre-release sample sent to him since he does so many online kit reviews.

And< actually built the kit and made a video on it. I wonder though how so many are set off by such nice tracks. Yes, there are some parts in it. But the look really nice.
