Vinnie, I just read thru my article again. Under the "kit" portion it double lists the same information. Did it come thru like this when I sent it? I also forgot to add one pic that actually had a German figure standing next to the vehicle prior to being mounted on the base. Should I leave it as is or what? Thanks for posting it so soon. Didn't think it would go up that quick. Thanks again. "Q"

Matt,

Is that your Tank Destroyers Campaign submission? In the words of Chris Farley " Holy Schnikes!" :-)

Vinnie,

Awesome job for a kit someone else voted as "Worst model ever" on another thread. Just goes to show what can be achieved with perseverance.

Matthew You did a great job with a dog of a kit! I was the one that posted the comment about the ASU-57. The kit was TOGAs kit but i'm sure its the same molds. Mine was molded in heavy white plastic with soft surface detail, poor fit, and terrible directions. One day I will crack it back open and finish the job. Your wonderful model may just be the inspiration I need.

Sorry for the slow response... Yeppers, that will be one of my entries. The other is the M10 by Tamiya. I can't get the pics to come out right...hence the delay in posting them. Thanks. "Q"
