They seem pretty cool and are all on sale at just about every online store. I know they come mostly preassembled but its difficult to tell how bad the seems and mold lines would be.

They are definatly sweet models but I can't tell how much work they are. I've watched this review.

http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2012/04/dus...zer-walker.html

but certain things I can't tell from it. EX the base seems already glued on to the feet. does it pop off? I would want to re base it. I've seen models where the feet are in different positions but I don't know if they converted it.

Well I ordered a light, medium, and heavy panzer walkers. I'll tell everyone how the kits turn out.

can't wait for that, since i'm curious, too. The 4-legged ones look pretty sweet.


edit: no wonder these models look so sweet in that link. The guy who made them look so shiny is bulldog, you can find more adoreable stuff from him even here in this forum...

Interesting to see what you make out of them Mechanicore.

Years ago I ordered the Dust Gunther model inspired by your example on this very WIP site. I still haven't completed it but I do plan to use it in friendly games with my someday ready Krieg.

And I also found another Dust model, bought it from the ebay. Bergeluther in 1/35, it will be a nice engineer walker addition to my Krieg as well.

Here's link to the BergeLuther in ebay. They come from China and mine didn't have any instructions with it so it will take some time to ponder how to build it biggrin.gif

Wow the resin one used to be really expensive. The one I just bought was only $20. But I'd prefer a straight resin kit I think.

Hopefully they are so preassembled I can pop them out real quick. But mold lines scare me. Well we'll see later this week hopefully.

I really look forward to your review on this, as I have looked at these models quite a bit.

Then God said, "Let there be win," and there was win, and it was good.

Everyone complains that all their models look better in real life, mine always look better in the pictures...
