It would be interesting to see the interior of the open turret. I noticed that they cover up the M36B1 but the M10 and M36 is not.

I love the M10, but will probably wait to see if they do a plastic version first. 

Not a big fan of the all metal tanks, hard on the gears, electronics, batteries and wallet.

I am really enthused by the M10 release.  One of the 'eventual projects' that I want to build is an Achilles.  For several years now, I have been saving a Tamiya 17-pounder barrel for it.  (Yeah; I know that's a silly way to build a tank - to start with just the barrel and then build everything else around it).  Very cool news!

I don't like all metal. Hope they will release plastic version.

This really IS a small world.  I started building the barrel for a Nashorn as a prelude to deciding whether or not to put the effort into reworking a Bandai Hummel, (this was before the neat conversion came out that you're building).  And, although I STARTED converting a KV-85 to a KV-122; once I saw that Tamiya was making a JS-2, I scrapped my unsatisfactory attempt at the muzzle brake, and converted it back to a KV-85.

Wow, no kidding. Great minds must think alike. I am not that good at scratch build, so I bought a Tamiya KT barrel (it was the closes to to it and it is an 88mm/L71 !) and was going to get the Juckenburg Hummel (Instead of the Bandai since I already have a HL Panzer IV lower chassis) and the he tells me that has the Nashorn kit, it is just not on his website (?!?!?) Anyway, I kept the Tamiya barrel and integrated it into Juckenburg's kit.

The KV-122 is another crazy thing. I ordered an Asiatam Elephant two years ago and they shipped me 2 barrels. I kept the extra one around and when I decided to do the KV-122, I measured it out and the Elephant monobloc is pretty close, and I just have to cut off the tapering at the end. As to the muzzle brake, I noticed that Juckenburg is making a JS-3 so I asked if I can buy a couple of the muzzle brakes from him and the rest is history.

Here is my baby.......

Back to the M36B1, I would love to get the metal turret and is very curious as to how the barrel recoil inside the turret etc.

Yea I'm not sure how they'll do turret interiors and still have it fully functional for R/c control.

Ditto on the Achilles, very interesting and unique vehicle.

I like the new releases but as a typical tanker very picky about it.. I think more is to come.... I'd still love Mato to release a small-hatch Sherman hull and plastic turrets for these TD's
