About Adam Mann (Mannloon)
FROM: WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES

I am a professional video game artist specializing in hard surface modeling and PBR texturing. I started making armor models a few years ago and have been trying since to translate my digital skills to paint and plastic, which isn't always easy. My specialty is German Armor in 1/35.

Looking at the picture on ML with the US halftrack in the fore ground , I wonder if the poles on the nose are 2 parts for the boom for the crane ? ( sort of stick them together like a fishing pole ? ) There also seems to be a pulley stuck in behind them . I don't think they are tow bars like we see on modern AFVs . This vehicle is a real head scratcher

goldnova72- Check the Tamiya famo tank recovery accessory kit instruction. Then you could find the purpose of two tow bar.

This is a definitely BERGETIGER

David I actually knew you had nothing to do with the Dragon kit when I recorded this, I wish I'd have said that differently. My point was to say exactly what you're saying which is that they also are making the same mistakes despite having had you accessible on previous kits.

There are a few issues, but the workable tracks are really nice. This bergepnazer tiger might be a good diorama piece.
