I know nothing about Gecko Models, but they are announcing this kit to release in (about) August: https://www.themodellingnews.com/2022/0 ... scale.html
All I can say is: It's about time!

Gecko Models makes obscure Allied vehicles in 1/35 which no other company makes. Examples of their models. Looks like nice quality kits.

Finally, it will be possible to fill the "German tree" with a workhorse of the beginning of the war.

Good Morning,
Early War? I am there. Workable suspension means resin or metal tracks so RC is a thing. Thanks for the Heads Up, Mike!

Painless you probably know as much if not a lot more about the PZ1/2/3 and 4 as I do,
The single most assuring thing about the Panzer 2 was the suspension was changed completely at least 3 times, none of the the Panzer light and medium tanks had decent suspension although the Panzer 4 prototype did give that tank a good chance with its torsion bar arrangement unfortunately the purseholders said no and the PZ4 was lumbered with the godawful 1/4 elliptic spring suspension that no one likes.
But with the multitude of choices on the PZ11 at least you have pretty much free rein in what you do.
I shall watch your build if you succumb with interest :clap:
