Please could the members viewing this review give me some feedback on the intro. I know it is very long but as this model can only be one of five tanks, one of which cannot be made accurately due to the information on it being unknown. I felt it warranted a long intro as it is a battle most people know of, and these five Panthers must be some of the best known and most talked about tanks put into action during WW2.

Darren,
thank you very much for this nice and informative review. I think the intro is very good, not to long. And the kit seems to be a real nice one.
Thanks again

Darren, I think it's "just right" as Goldilocks said about the porridge.

If someone isn't interested in the topic, they can skip the Intro, as it's a separate section. And if they're interested, then they likely will want it LONGER! You were tackling a very specific piece of history, and handled it well IMO.

Thank you for the replies. I was interested in how such a long intro was recieved as a guide for the future.

The intro gave me a lot of information I didn't know about. I was unaware there were only five of these. It was worthwhile to know what happened to them. I was glad you gave us the information.

Well I must say the intro was a very interesting read. I wasn't aware that there where only 5 of these converted, for some reason I always thought that more of these where converted for this operation.

What happened to the Stug's?

Thank you.

Some of the Stugs were I believe destroyed by mines placed by the Americans, they were ambushed after a deserter told the Americans all. I did not go into that side of the battle too far, as it was beginning to look as if instead of an introduction I was writing a book.
