The New Slammers Blower tanks in 15mm by Ainsty Castings
Single Blower, at speed
New Slammers blower tanks will be available from April 20th 2013 from Ainsty castings. These are only available in 15mm forces and are correctly proportioned for 1/100th scale models. The shots on the following pages are of the pre- production vehicle – the tri-barrel and main gun are in resin, as is (obviously) the rest of the vehicle. On the production version, these elements, along with the anti-mine rocket launcher on the front glacis (with the option of it being open or closed) will be in metal. Stowage (in a turret-rear basket) will be in resin. The tanks are around 110mm long, 73mm wide and 32mm to the top of the turret (with the hatch/cupola being slightly proud of that). They have a one piece cast hull and a separate turret (obviously…) The Combat Cars are just finishing the sculpting process now and should be with Ainsty by the end of the week. They will be around 75mm long and have an etched brass roof (on this model). They should also be available to buy at Salute but I'll leave all of that news up to Ainsty themselves. Sculpting is by Steve McGuire and all are original sculpts. Next up planned are the Command Cars and Command turreted tanks. Following that will be the up-armoured cars and tanks (as used by later Slammers and the post Slammers Friesland Defence Force). Remember that GZG are also on schedule for new infantry and skimmers for Slammers by Salute as well.
