From Tanks to Monsterpocalypse – Are you game?

Today we announce with sadness that three our tanks were badly injured from their fierce battle on Saturday. Mr Michie once again turned up in the shop and unleashed his suspiciously fortunate dice throws. Beating us once is fortunate, beating us twice is suspicious, but THREE times? Something is wrong.

Photographic evidence submitted by Mr Michie showing our defeat – this is very cruel you know, but probably nothing compare with how he will feel when he loses the next game!

We can’t bear to witness this any longer.

Nooooo!!!!!

Space Craft hereby challenge you, Mr Michie, to a game of the highly anticipated (by us anyway) Monsterpocalypse. Read up on the rules because you can no longer hide behind your measly cornfields or rural cottages as giant robots are coming to town!

Construction of Meng World War Toons King Tiger

Space Craft Dundee World War Toons King Tiger

Our latest build is the King Tiger from Meng World War Toons series – welcome to the world of cartoon tanks!

1) Included in the kit are the sprues, rubber tracks, and a small sheet of decal – which is a nice change from the Airbus A350.

2) This is a snap kit, the parts fitted nicely together but glue might handy for smaller parts.

3) The sprues come in grey, but we decided to prime it with a matt grey coat for a more realistic look. The finer details are picked out by hand.

4) In the final stage, decals are added. All the areas were nice and flat – no dramas here.

This is simple and straight forward kit, which can be built in an hour. The tank feels very sturdy, despite almost no glue was used.
