Little dangerous coffin
Where can I get your models? Do you have a website?
I'm an airplane guy with this little beauties you are getting my attention
Roman, just curious. Are you designing with some CAD software?
The work of Roman is available on:
Also my models you could by at www.teuton.org/dbarnett and www.e-papermodels.com.
Alcides: I use the McNeel Rhinoceros programm.
I've got ask - why was the Hetzer (aka SdKfz 138/2) a "little dangerous coffin"?
"Grobik" (little coffin) was a soviet nickname of Hetzer. It looks like orthodox traditional coffins
Thanks for the explanation. The Red army seems to have a black sense of humour about AFVs - I remember reading the T-60 light tank was called "a grave for 2 brothers".
Originally " Brother grave for 2". "Brother grave" is a soviet invention - many bodies in one grave. Less work
4 days !!! and not news !!! :cry:
Roman this models is going to be available from www.hobbyfactory.com?
Goes with the German's nick name for the Sherman 'Ronson' like the lighter that always lit up on the first hit everytime.
kampfflieger has quite a few great table top pieces for 1.72 scaled gaming.
I've send model to Hobbyfactory yesterday. Please be quite
More Panzerwaffe coming soon!
I think he meant to say "Please be patient", but the wait is over. The model is now available at the Hobby Factory.
Sorry. My English is not perfect
Roman, Sorry if I sound harsh. I was just asking. It was exaggerating trying to by funny.
I'm learning english too.
Do not worry
Shoot both you guys got me beat.............. native born and sometimes folks have a hard time understanding me!
Roman another great job...........but more planes..... please!:grin:
I seem to remember the Americans having such graphic names for the WWI planes the allies loaned them to fight with........... "flying coffins" comes to mind.
And for the Japanese "Betty" in WWII as the "lighter" because of it propensity to go up in flames easily.
it is true that some AFVs from ww2 had a habit of "lighting up" like a ronson. due to expedient manufacturing, some shermans equiped with aircraft engines (and no "wet" ammo storage) were unfortunately known as "tommy cookers". the description of such events are horrific. it is because of such things that inter-war vehicles were deisel. modern "halon" systems allow turbine power of multiple fuels. nice job with the hetzer design. cheers, c.b.
