I've just informed the winners by PM, so I thought I'd post it here as well, as others might be interested. For the May contest the prizes were as follows: 1st: #6262 Marder II 2nd: #6247 Sd.Kfz.251/16 Ausf.D 3rd: #6278 Gen2 figure kit “Last Battle” Actually the 1st prize Marder II will not be premiered until Dragon Expo in LA on 22nd June, so it's a major prize getting it this early! Well done Ron! Vinnie

Nice one Ron, and congrats on the Marder as well. That should keep you smiling for a while! How was the build on this? I heard it was a real pain to build! Does look cool though with all the turrets!

yes,, that is too cool, funny thing is i've just got throught putting the finishing touches on my tamiya marder III m and was eyeballing the old tamiya marder II in the stash while i was on the sp gun kick but now i will be waiting a little while longer, i may build the hummel insteadin the meantime, thank you vinnie for that great news. frank - as far as building this kit i didnt have many problems with it, pre-cleaning the kit was the biggest hassle heh. also i got mine off ebay for around $15 shipping included so for the price it is a absolute bargain featuring some interior detailing, the tracks went together ok and to me looked great when done so no problems there, it could really benifit from some am but i havent ventured into the pe area yet im still mostly oob although i have a pile of dragon kits waiting for me to get up the courage and confidence. :-)
