 Looking forward to the new Remagen book due out in June I will finally be able to use my 3 Purshing's ive had since battlefront first produced them. I hope their scale is good as i know over the years battlefront have remodeled alot of stuff to make it the correct scale hopefully they got the Purshing right the first time.
