Ugh. I have an A7V kit, I have paint, I have glue, I have putty, I have a vast array of styrene and spare parts, I have the internet, I have tools, I have time, I have a can-do attitude. What I do not
have right now is disposable income. The Hundleby & Strasheim reference is going for over $150 bucks. Can't afford it and probably wouldn't spend that much even if I could.
Based on an hour or two of computer-based research on the relevant enthusiast sites, I was under the impression the the Tauro kit was at least generally
accurate in terms of outline and configuration-- it certainly looks like the pictures I can find on the internet. Frankly, I was hoping to avoid a lot of the rivet counting BS that afflicts me. Can't I just build a damn OOTB model once in a while?
Obviously, the commander and driver seats suck out loud, and the engines are mounted incorrectly-- what other nits need picking? Are the inaccuracies so glaring that you could call them out if the model was sitting on a table and no reference materials were on hand to demonstrate its wrongness?
If I'm going to take this rig into the realms of fantasy, I'm going to keep it based on early twentieth century Earthling practice, so no Jawa Sandcrawlers.
It might make a decent base of operations for a zombie suppression task force.
