Panzer III cupola
« on: December 23, 2017, 04:26:26 PM »
I required two panzer III cupola's., one grey and one yellow . The originals were glued in by an over zealous shop assistant who put glue ever where. I would appreciate any assistants with this situation

I did not have any luck looking for plastic replacements for HengLong, except for one gray PzKw III turret linked by the first URL below.   There are more sources worldwide for the metal turret.  I have had fine experience with the ones to which I give URLs below.  Of course, shipping is expensive, but that makes a good excuse just to make a large order so shipping is more economical. ;D

Thanks for the input guys I will speak to the owner of the tanks and see what he wants to do,plastic or metal.  Its typical isn't when you aren't looking for an item there is heaps around and as soon as you need one they are not available.  :(
Merry Xmas and may you get what you want for Chrissy. ;D ;D
Happy Tankin
