Conqueror looks mean, lovely. Wonder when is Mark II coming...

Are these kits pretty good or what? I never put one together...do they fit nicely like Tamiya or do they have a Dragon feel....or an Italeri feel?

Did they even exist in any meaningful way? One-offs seems kind of forced.

Hurray for HO-RI !

The Conqueror was used from 1955-1965 but only in West Germany. Most of them were MKII's though. There were only a dozen or so MkI's made before the MkII came out. 185 in total were produced. At least one up armored one was made for trails, I believe for munitions testing as a target.

Amusing specialise in making paper [except Conqueror] tank kits.

Yes! I agree!!! A Ho Ri in glorious styrene is awesome and affordable! Great news! Never thought I'd one one of these beasts..until now. With Pacific Coast Models off the radar, anyone know who is selling or distributing Amusing Hobbies in the States these days? With Regards and Aloha Johnny B.

If Amusing were to make a serious kit of a WW2 tank, say a Panther or Sherman...I would buy their kits. But, to come out with only paper...makes me not take them serious. That's just my opinion.
