Nice new upcoming static kit of the M4A3E8 Sherman advertised by Axel for pre-order, late June delivery. Lots of stuff to be reused for RC.

An interesting coincidence. How is it that these sets come out in pairs. For example, Stug and Panzer III from Das Werk and Heller came out almost simultaneously, although they had COMPLETELY different moldings.

Man, we are old enough for knowing everything in the life is like that. I am super happily long married now, but when younger I remember being unable to get a girl, and then, as soon as grabbed one, all the girls in the world seemed to have unstoppable interest in me... until I got single again, then I turned into the mighty invisible man again. LOL :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

But yes, I guess in the case of the toys they might copy each other.
Or maybe molds are done in one brand, and they don't produce the toy until they see their neighbours are releasing their own version.

Or like with "twin" movies:
- Dante’s Peak and Volcano (1997),
- Armageddon and Deep Impact (1998)
- Antz and A Bug's Life (1998)
etc :haha:

It looks to be the very similar feature wise. I wonder if Takom is producing it for both Andy and I Love Kit to rebrand and distribute through their respective channels. Either way, it's great to have more kits in 1/16 for conversion and detail parts.

Your personality has a different outward appearance when you're happy or sad, even though you may not see it, but other people notice it, especially women. Therefore, being in a happy relationship, your personality radiates differently, and makes one more confident, sociable and more naturally happy go lucky, which makes one talk to women differently, and therefore more attractive personality wise. But being single, it can make you appear sad, lonely and desperate, with less confidence, and you'll interact differently with women, and not appear so naturally happy. You may think you're still the same old you, but sadly you're not.
Edit, for more dating tips, please feel free to PM me :haha: :haha:

As for this kit, such a shame something like a firefly isn't as marketable. But 150 is definitely a bargain, especially if those boggies can be easily converted.

In comparison mentioned above "I Love Kits" kit will cost about $200.

With a large count of 2200 parts, the I Love Kits Sherman should normally come with a full interior with engine compartment. A model with 2000+ parts like the Trumpeter Panzer IV and Panther have a full interior. The Trumpeter T-72 for example, without interior only has 700 parts, and the Tamiya M4 has about 535. I do not understand how a 1/16 model could have 2200 parts with just an exterior. That would explain the cost difference between the two upcoming Sherman kits. Although it is not advertised with an interior, i hope that i am right as a 1/16 Sherman with interior would be awesome.

Well, at least this kit will be available in Europe. I hope Andy's kit will be too.
