FEDEX package 270590234100 arrived. What could it be?

Post by michaelwhittmann »

It's a a tank!

A bouncing baby boy 14 lbs ( 1 stone ) (6.4 kilo ).

I'm so proud.

I owed this forum an official unboxing.
I was unaware that unboxing literally meant unboxing.

I hope this is a true replica.

Comments appreciated.

I realize you have started it already but the Panther is definitely one where purchasing the Aber detail kit is money well spent. The lack of detail on the HL I can understand but the Tamiya was pathetic considering the amount they used to charge for it. Whereas the Taigen's detailing is excellent

Good Afternoon!
The Tank overall is a thing of Beauty! My only (probably unwanted) advice is to knock down the steps that HL puts on it's Panther and Jadgpanther road wheels. The real wheels had a smooth curve from hub to rim. I think Taigen road wheels fixed this issue. Following along!
