1/16 Panzer II F announced

Post by sassgrunt »

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!
regards,
Painless

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:
I think I am about to upset someone :haha:

35RCTank's Luchs conversion should be adaptable to this version. The biggest difference would be adapting or replacing the Luchs torsion bar setup.

The tough part is finding that kit. I picked up an unbuilt Luchs cheap on eBay last week and emailed 35RC to see when they would have stock again. They do have plans to do another run sometime in the future but didn't have any real timeframe. They also said their kits are produced by hand in very small numbers so grab them when you can.
