Bolt Action Volksgrenadiers 
I need some armour support for the Bolt Action Volksgrenadiers so decided to find another 1/50 scale Corgi diecast tank to match the M4A3's that I already have. I was lucky enough to buy most of my Shermans ages ago, when they were at a knock down price in Hobbyzone, but I didn't think to get any Panthers or Tigers at the same time.
These are now ridiculously expensive but I managed to find one tucked away in a corner of Ebay and put in a bid. In the end no one else noticed it so I now have a pre-painted Panther for £17, which is less than the equivalent 1/48 scale resin model from Blitzkrieg Miniatures and far less costly than most of the diecast ones I've seen on offer.
