Ex-Swiss Panzer 55 aka Centurion Mk. 3

Here are some photos from the Southern New England Military Museum in Danbury, CT.  The subject is an ex-Swiss Centurion Mk. 3 named as Panzer 55 while in service (my thanks to Günther Neumahr for the correction).  A few scans from the Technical Manual follow as well.

Griffon Photo etch update for the Dragon M-16 Halftrack

I had began building the Dragon M-16, and fortunately, I build in small sub assemblies. Jenny Croft sent me the Griffon set for review and being in tiny subassemblies, it wasn't much work to rebuild the kit substituting the PE parts for plastic ones in various areas.

Griffon offers this highly detailed set to update and improve the DML M-16 halftrack. My only prior experience with Griffon was a recent build of the Dragon Flakpanzer 38 T. It was excellent, I had no problems whatsoever, so my expectations for this set was very high.

Verlinden Productions German WWII Maintenance Tools

Set 2502
MSRP $8.99USD
1/35th scale

Verlinden Productions has been around a long time and is a pioneer of the aftermarket for armor and aircraft modelers with their resin detail sets.  Many of these sets included photo-etched copper frets and there were a few brass sets as well.  However, the last few years did not see much fresh material on the armor front from them.

After a posting by Charlie Pritchett got my interest in VP's new photo-etched details for their M-31 ARV, I obtained several of their sets to review.  Most were of the new Photo-etched details and this one, German WWII Maintenance tools, is representative of all their newer small frets.
