Just added some new patch photos to my Facebook page "WW2 Leather Sqd/Group Patches" 200+ photos

This is from "Tank warfare on the Eastern Front 1941-1942," by Robert Forczyk, Chapter 2, "The Dynamic of Armoured Operations in 1941," page 50, last par through page 51, 3rd par: "On 25 June, Khatskilevich continued his attack with 150-200 tanks,...
At the top of the 'long-awaited' list for many (including me) must be a genuine groundup early Tiger I from DML, with new tooling to correct some of the deficiencies in the (albeit bargain-priced) Orange Box Tiger I Kursk release of 2013 such as the old 2-halves turret, too-early driver's plate with periscope holes, fixed suspension arms and weldless wheels, all based on a pre-built DragonArmor model.
So check out this new Tiger I Early Production Michael Wittmann Eastern Front 1944 SmartKit. (Sold as a CyberHobby or Dragon depending on region)

According to the HobbyLink Japan blurb, the turret, engine deck, hull rear, wheels and other items are new tooling. HLJ have it on preorder for 7800 yen. I preordered one today.
So whilst it's not the 'holy grail' Dec 42-Mar 43 production I really really want (it is a late-Early Apr-Jun 43 prod with the late feifels and non-handed engine vents) it's still looking like a fabulous return to the fray by DML, easily the best maker of the Tiger I if one discounts the 'Ultimate' (read 'ridiculously overpriced and with faults') LE Tiger I kits.
Again according to the blurb it will make Wittmann's winter 43-4 'S04' with the 88 barrel kill rings and befehlsTiger extra aerials plus his entire crew! So let's hope it lives up to the blurb.
