Grousers / Grabs ??
Permalink   


Hi All, i was wondering if any of you have had experience with Panzershops "Grabs"

 http://www.panzershop.cz/inshop//scripts/detail.asp?ItemID=2700&Level=3&Edit=1

I'll be working on a Tamiya Mk. IV and before i spend any more money on it, I was wondering if it's something people have worked with them before.

Also there is Friulmodel ATL-149 Metal Grouser Spud for British WWI Tanks MK II MK IV,

but this is all metal and seems a bit of overkill ? not sure how they would fit on a Tamiya Mk. IV kit.

any advise is appreciated.

thanks. N.

Hello Ned,

I have no experience with either the resin or the metal grousers. But I have used the plastic ones that are included in every Takom kit of a mark IV.

So maybe that is the (cheapest) way: if you buy a Takom Mark IV you have a full set, or ask anybody in your local modelling club if they have a set that they do not use.

If there is no one in your country then send me a message and I will send you a full set. The costs will be the packing and postage. Where do you actualy live, I can not see that in your personal information? I ask that because sending anything to the US seems to be very expensive.

Willem

Thanks Willem, I have already gotten a Tamiya Mk. IV kit. and was wondering about adding the grousers (or are they called grabs) to it.  I haven't decided if I want to motorize it, probably not since that would leave gaps where the sponsons are for battery replacing.
