Schumo are renowned for being highly detailed parts.

Good thing about Schumo parts are that they are nickel silver and very strong. Bad news is they are a little more expensive than others - €29 for the mg and mount.

This was a fiddly buggar to put together as I had forgotten the power tools! Moveable as well.

MG34 and mount, seen here being offered up to my Tamiya Panzer IV.

Finishes off the turret with the commander nicely.

Another good part for American tanks are the Schumo Periscope guards. Seen here being fitted to my Tamiya Pershing.

Drill a small hole for each of the locating lugs, drop of super glue and ta da

Top notch bits Adam :D the periscope guards are much better looking than the plastic moulded ones you get on tanks imho :thumbup:

Cheers, Lee.

Great parts, but the excessive postage cost to Australia makes them too expensive. Four times the price of the item. :wtf: :thumbdown:

Good Morning,
If possible, Schumo is the route to take. Most of my Builds have benefited from Schumo details, all the way from 'Maxene' to 'Freda'.
regards,
Painless

I use www.mailboxde.com for all my parts from Germany now. You pay for shipping twice but it will be a few euro local shipping to the mail forwarding company and then about 10 euro to Australia. You do have to pay VAT on the parts but it still works out much cheaper than what Deutsche Post charge these days.

Thanks Jimster.

Re weathered the Panzer IV today too. Pin wash, filter and pigments. Surprising what you can get done when the wife goes out :D

Save me starting a new thread, what do people think to the extra track links on the front?

Panther and Panzer IV ones left over so painted them and have offered them up.

They need a light dusting of pigments but look ok.

Yes, but only if the maintenance crew fit some rough hangers , better than just glueing them on.

Not going to just glue them on ;) I’ve seen them held on with wire irl/photos but unsure if it looks right.
