interiors everywhere…

I would never have guessed five years ago that my main complaint would be that there are too many kits coming out with interiors I cannot keep up. Now a 1/48 Panther is being issued with full interior, of course. MiniArt picked up the pace with their T-34 and T-60 series, they have a PnzIV coming out, which looks amazing, and RFM has its Panzer III…

Regardless, here are some of the stash with interior (some are in the attic as I have not been able to work on them since I came back from the US… ten years ago).

The size of the boxes are not always indicative of the number of parts; they, however, are in case of the RFM and Takom kits. I was relieved to see that RFM did not repeat the insanity of the Panther kit, and took it a bit easier with their Sherman. The Takom Jadgpanther is also a bit smaller with regards to the part number, as it lacks turret. (Thank god for small mercies.)

The Ferdinand kit, although it is far the largest when it comes to box size, does not have an extreme part number as the size would suggest (the RFM Panther still takes first place for that), and it also has a crane packed with the tank.

The MiniArt boxes are packed full – they easily beat any model in complexity bar the RFM Panther.

Now I finished both Panthers, and finishing up Tiger Model’s AML-90; the question is what to build next? (Probably the Ferdinand.)
