It's very important for FOA/6SI because Mike Standard made some pattern sheets (diamond/threads/dots), and I think they are super expensive (and priced correctly because expensive to make in Photo Etch). I'd rather not produce them if a Plastruct sheet of similar size can be purchased for $10 (compared to $60).

I will order the PS-152 and compare it to Mike's sheets. I'll do the same for the diamond pattern

I'm still wondering where the DOT pattern for the Pz.III fenders come from? That one might be kept in production
Hi Loic,

Did the PS-152 work out well for your Pz.III?

Re: 1/6 scale tread plate?

PS-152 is the diamond tread plate. Great for American vehicles or even Pz.IV, but not accurate for Pz.III. Panzer III fenders had a dot pattern. I cannot find this pattern outside the Photo Etch plates that Mike Standard designed

Thanks for confirming, Loic! I will try the route of reinforced embossed paper with a dot pattern.
