SiG 15cm from Butlers

Post by CarlL » 03 Jun 2019, 19:38

Well Butlers have produced many vehicles since my last post highlighting their output and this model seems a very lovely addition. I assume the photo I borrowed from their TMP advert is of one of the bigger scale prints like 20m or 28mm but I cannot be sure. Lovely model whatever its scale.
see ad at http://theminiaturespage.com/ from where this photo came or their own website at https://www.butlersprintedmodels.co.uk/

The TMP ad says:
Image

"15cm self-propelled infantry gun on a modified Panzer II chassis.

6mm is £1.15 GBP
12mm is £2.25 GBP
15mm is £3.50 GBP
20mm is £7.00 GBP
28mm is £14.00 GBP

The models are available in most scales.
Everything is 3Dprinted to order."

PS apologies looks to be problem with Imgur link, after several attempts

As far as I'm aware all of the photos on the BPM site are of the 15mm version of the model.
The quality/ accuracy of the printing is something quite spectacular. I get the impression that he's invested in newer (smaller layer size) printers fairly recently since my latest purchases are less striated than the first ones I made a year or so back.
I'm waiting (and longing) for a ZSU-57-2 in 20mm: a piece of kit that appears to be sadly lacking for gamers. I'm aware of one kit, but it's a resin one (IIRC) and not only too expensive for gaming but has loads of components... multi-part plastic is OK, but resin kits are a pain in the fundament.

MrCreak...is that the one done by Armada Hobby?? Takom made on in 1/35th scale plastic, and they are (slowly) releasing their larger scale items in 1/72nd scale, so hopefully in the not too distant future, you might get one in multi-part plastic.

Yeah, Armada is the one (but I'd forgotten the name).
I've emailed Butlers and got a "Thank you for the suggestion" note so it may be under consideration.
I can also envisage Trumpeter getting around to it too, but a BPM version would be around 70% of the price :).

I'll be adding one to my next order, nice to see some rarer vehicles being produced
What's the point of doing one period, when you can do them all.......... In life most people specialise so gradually they know more and more about less and less so eventually they know everything about nothing. I work on a broad front so eventually I'll know nothing about everything.
