3Lorraine project

My best friend, Wada, who produced the garage kid for Tracteur Blinde 37L (Lorraine), died lonely on August 5, 2017, of heart disease.
He produced 11 assembler kits and completed and owned two of them.

After his death, relics belonging to him belonging to "1/6 scale model" gathered at me, but were later taken over
Now his fathers own them as souvenirs.
I had a few odd parts left.
These include tracks, rivets, raceways, guide wheels, driver's side armor plate, driver's hatch, bodyboard, and one underbody.
I made many parts myself.
Rolling wheels etc. were requested to produce by the next processing company.

On August 5, 2018, I started production of 2 units of "Marder (Sd.Kfz. 135 PaK40)" and 1 unit of "15cm sFH131 (Sf) auf".
It is still unfinished and will continue to be built.

Re: 3Lorraine project

Yaz,
I remember when your friend started building these. I also remember his untimely passing away. I am sorry for your loss. Great of you to finish some of his designs and models in his memory! They are excellent looking vehicles. Looks like you inherited a lot of parts.
Best regards,
Bob

Re: 3Lorraine project

I, too, am sorry for the passing of your friend, YAS.

He was a very talented modeler!

Would you be willing to share more photos of the M-3 light tank in the background?

Fred

Thanks for the invitation of the M-3 light tank.
But I am collecting AXIS vehicles.
Invite them different people.
