001 : An Overview of Page 26 - Part A (Index Print)
002 - 005 : Verlinden's Waffen-SS NCO 1:9 (200 mm)
This kit was bought second-handed for just 20 Euro but it's as good as new, unbuilt and with complete parts.
006 - 015 : Andrea Miniatures' U-Boat VII C 1:32
This kit was bought second-handed*, partially built, with some parts missing. All figures' body and leg parts were missing, left with only heads and hands, therefore figures could not be built (Dragon's 1:35 German Naval Troops Figure Set was not compatible due to some 10% scale difference) . Even without figures, building the tower alone was a nightmare for "Art Instructor". He complained that the construction was so difficult that it took two weeks while painting took only two days. The Instant Glue (Cyanoacrylate) would not join many parts, he had to weld them together with lead wires. The resin body was as hard as stone, making drilling very difficult (he has no electric tools), so on and so forth. It's probably the kit that took him the longest time ever! (Trumpeter's Leopold, a 1,140-parts kit, took him one week only). (* The kit costed 260 Euro, I bought it for only 30 Euro.)
016 - 021 : Trumpeter's German 39(H) 10.5 cm LeFH18 (Sf) duf Geschutzwagen
022 - 028 : Gunze Sangyo's German 1 ton Half-Track Pak 38 50 mm Self-Propelled Gun
This kit was also bought second-handed, partially built, but no parts missing. It's a multimedia kit which Gunze Sangyo called "High Tech kit", where the whole Pak 38 50 mm gun is made of white metal, same as the roadwheels and sprockets. Engine cover and windshield sheets are PE parts, creating unique and realistic look. Apart from being an expensive kit at the start (8,000 Yen), it's now a very rare kit and may fetch some $400-500 on eBay. I got it for only 30 Euro ($36).
