An order of US M10's has just dropped through the post from a UK company called Scalefiend that do resin models and parts mostly for 1:72. Got four reasonably nice looking models separate hull, turret, tracks and gun (which I'm a bit sceptical of). Some flash, but nothing surprising IMO. Detail looks okay, I've not checked their size with a ruler but they 'look right'. Not tried to put them together yet, but no obvious show stoppers on visual inspection aside from the flash.

I hadn't come across Scalefiend before, I found them only because I was surfing eBay for 1:144-stuff, which seems to be a new thing for them. The order was a bit of punt, but prompt service and the price point is pretty good IMO. They do a couple of Sherman variants and some US/UK tank destroyers at the moment.

I promise I'll post some pic once they migrate from the in tray-pile to the pre-workbench pile!

Never heard of them.

Thanks for the heads up.

There are a few companies making minis in resin, that are of very high quality. Another one on eBay is Kami…. something – they have a nice range of WWII and Cold War offerings.

There's another one in the Netherlands, whose name escapes me right now. Superb stuff too.

Checked their website, they have a really nice set of 1/72 stowage. link Would be nice if they made that in 1/144, I would buy a bunch of them.

Agreed. At first I was really enthusiastic.

But I clicked on the large stowage set…out of stock
US Army helmets…out of stock
US 57 A/T Gun ….you guessed it.

Of course that just makes them even more desirable. So, a great find….many thanks

Pre-clean up shot and that was the worst one. The flash has since been easily removed and they've had a warm soapy bath. Not quite 1:144 by my calculation actually somewhere between 1:145 to 1:146.
