Wow...the UK slang meaning for growler is unfortunate!

That's way better than naming a car "gremlin" - I believe RAF pilots called mysterious mechanical problems gremlins during WW2... now that's an unfortunate name for a product, especially one with moving parts :P

Those vehicles are looking really good.

Growlers are back up in the store and ready to order. Pics of the land transporter forthcoming!
(I dropped it and all the wheels fell off, didn't have the heart to glue them back on just yet)

Well, I received my order. The vehicles are very nice, worth every penny.....and Despot is a joy to deal with. When I get them together I'm going to throw some panzer gray onto the Komodos and try and get some pictures posted.

I was curious if you (Despot) had any advice for us on gluing on the wheels, based on your comments above (from page 3).

First piece of advice...especially if you brush prime, definitely prime the hull first, especially under the wheel wells and under the hull. Its a real pain to try to get all the little pewter nooks and crannies after the wheels are on, you may even knock some of them off if you are overzealous.

When gluing the wheels on, I found the following method worked well for me: Lay vehicle on its side and dry fit wheels to make sure they lay well against the wheel connectors. Clip off all or part of the little wheel nub as necessary. Put a dab of glue on each wheel connector, place all wheels on vehicle, now set it down on its side with something to slightly lean on. At this point you can lightly adust the wheels so they appear straight. Now let it sit!!!! Once that is totally dry and solid, flip it over and do the other side...except this time you may need to have something behind and in front of the vehcile to keep it on its side, due to the wheels being attached on that side.

Tried to take some shots of the transporter today, came out awful, may wait for the painter to send me pics to post.

I did also take some shots of the last of the bronzes that came my way yesterday.

First the vehicles:
Flyer:

Showing the ordinance underneath:

Warthog support vehicle. I could only get a good shot of the MLRS turret, but there is also a SAM turret and AA/AP turret with tons of little gatling guns. No idea how I'm going to have these molded yet. as they have lots of extra turrets and wheels and such:

The big boy, the infernus, who has so many little parts, my moldmaker may kill me. The kit would come with the main hull, the main turret, a secondary turret, two forward drive modules, 6 big wheels, and 2 main guns;
