OK finally have a chance to post some pictures from Our Town Scale Modellers show held at the Jockey Club Newcastle Race Course. We had a great turn out with five 1/6 scale tanks two Tigers a King Tiger a Sherman and a Centurion thanks Mark and Wolfgang as well Armour Tec 25 Pounder and Pak 40 these things are truly beautiful and seems a shame to paint them and hide that wonderful engineering. We had the largest display of 1/16 scale tanks I have seen and of course some of my Die Cast and 1/6 Scale figures. There was great diversity of models on display including of course Rail Way and Boats, Aircraft, Die cast vehicles, cars, trucks, equipment and a Lego town that took best display and in my mind it was bought many a smile to the people there. So a big thanks to Chris Mark Wolfgang Lear Shen and of course Biff he is the Vice President of the Our Town Scale Modellers Association and has been involved in the planning and running the show for the past seven years promoting all forms of modelling and as far as I'm concerned it is one of the best and largest I have attended so good job mate many thanks I hope to do some more in years to come.

This one caught my eye, Wobbly, because I am now working on the Merit 1/16 88.  This 88 seems to be all metal, but with a barrel shorter than those with which I am familiar.  Can you tell me anything about this model?

This is my 88 and it made in Spain by a company called Denix. Google Denix for more pictures
The barrel does look shorter and that is because they cast the gun in the full recoil position which is a shame because it is a good model.
I have seen these set up with an infra-red battle circuit.

Thank you for the information, Biff.  There are a number of interesting differences between the Denix model and Merit's plastic versions.  When time permits, I will post some photos of the Merit kit underway so folks can make comparisons.  Now, of course, I will be wanting the Denix model, too, but the budget will have final say on that matter.
