I was just looking at ordering tracks for the old Emhar one - won't bother anymore - well done Takon. Now if you could just see your way to giving us the first tank to see combat (the Mk 1 I will be an even happier man
Well done

Looks like you have a whole lot of old kits that you won't be building

That's what my wife thinks too ....
Maybe I will build it anyway, in a more relaxed manner and concentrate on the better kit
The worst thing is that I have a few expensive resin kits that now exists as styrene kits (M26 Dragon Wagon, FAMO halftracks, Cromwells A13, a few armoured cars from Accurate Armour, a few conversions, 2S7 Pion (sigh), ....)
At least I will have something to build when I retire, even if the whole plastic models industry collapses

Same here... I got five years till retirement.. and when that time comes, IF I'm alive and able, I'll go crazy with building all the stuff I've accumulated

The track and wheel they posted as a hint definitely do not belong to the Whippet. Cheiftan is still a likely possibility.

I think the Chieftain is all but definite, just not the next release.

Excellent news, hopefully we will see more WWI releases in the future from Takom, ie Gun Carrier, Supply variant.

Unless, of course, the whole glue industry collapses with it!
