    What is that tank's name?
    Panzer IV Ausf. D
    The last of the 140 Ausf. Cs was produced in August 1939, and production changed to the Ausf. D; this variant, of which 248 vehicles were produced, reintroduced the hull machine gun and changed the turret's internal gun mantlet to an external one. Again protection was upgraded, this time by increasing side armor to 20 mm (0.79 in). As the German invasion of Poland in September 1939 came to an end, it was decided to scale up production of the Panzer IV, which was adopted for general use on 27 September 1939 as the Sonderkraftfahrzeug 161 (Sd.Kfz. 161).
    In response to the difficulty of penetrating British Matilda Infantry tanks during the Battle of France, the Germans had tested a 50 mm (1.97 in) gunóbased on the 5 cm PaK 38 L/60 anti-tank gunóon a Panzer IV Ausf. D. However, with the rapid German victory in France, the original order of 80 tanks was canceled before they entered production.
    Wiki copy-paste, but it should explain a lot.

    Sweet Jesus, I don't have a link on this computer, but I've hit a goddamn gold mine.

    Apparently this guy's dad passed away, and he's selling all of his fathers untouched model kits starting at $0.99 each.

    Loads of 1/700 ships, 1/35 vehicles.

    Edited:

    Looking back I feel bad about all of the drooling I did.

    The first model I ever built was a snowspeeder kit my uncle gave me for Christmas. The paintjob came out awful, but i stuck with it and started building model airplanes. I eventually won $25 a contest in my JROTC class.    I was the only entry.

    Only models I ever made were Zoids when I was younger. Pretty sure a lot of them came pre-painted, though, so that's half the work already done.

    Oh man, I had that. Was that the action figure type thing that came with the pilot in the cockpit and made the noises?

    Anyway, might go and get a 1/72 King Tiger. I painted some WH40k models before, but that was like... six years ago. (And dumped lods of emone into buying said models and never painting them)

    So I'm the leading bidder on several of the models, a few of them jumped beyond my (college student) price range.

    Edited:

    After the bidding on my models is done I'll link you guys to the seller, he's sold several of them already.

    I've been looking at 10mm, mostly because I find the scale/detail ratio amazing:


    (Not mine.)

    I'd be more motivated if I had someone to play with though.

    They're 10mm, it's a wargaming scale.

    I think that translates almost (but not quite) into 1:144.

    I have no idea what game he's playing with them; a lot of games are cross-compatible between scales. They're WWI late-war German Stosstruppen.

    I recently purchased some WWII German 10mms, and I can strongly recommend them as an interesting scale both for modeling, painting, and potential wargaming. Pendraken 10mms are the brand I bought, got around 50 men and 2 halftracks for 20$.

    Heh, I am myself playing Flames of War, which should be 1:100 with 15mm miniatures, for such a small scale, they are detailed rather great, and I recommend them for the modeler and the wargamer. Altough they aren't cheap, they are worth all the money you waste on 'em.

    Pendraken 10mm is pretty cheap, something like 30 infantry/2 heavy guns/1 tank for $4-5 each.

    20 Infantry for 5$, or Two/Three guns, or one vehicle.
