Certainly hope it's retooled, the turret on the original is about 10% too small.
Any thing bigger than 6 is TOO BIG

Wow 1/72 is getting expensive just for a war games model. Soon it will be cheaper to home print your own even at this scale. Plus a lot of that detail looks flimsy for war gaming. Great for modellers not so good if you want to play with it. Perhaps hard core modellers and War gamers will have to start to demand different standards. I have long considered a lot of the infantry is way too detailed for stuff you just look at from 4ft or more. Its getting there with 1/72 kits.

I wouldn't pay a tenner for an easy build kit unless it was exceptional

From what I have seen of the, (I assume), CAD images in the catalogue, I won't be buying their Tiger I or their Sherman Firefly. I'll want until I see what they look like 'in the flesh' ;)
