​Yes, but you will only use 250 not including the magic tracks.  That is because there are at least 6 different versions of the kit on the sprue's.  You will also have to remove plastic from parts and fill wholes in. :facepalm:

 

Really? I thought when I checked it, it was just the Ausf. C?

I need to open it up again and see if I can get an Ausf. E or F out of it.

 

Actually it looks like they're all just really small parts and it uses most of them.

Lee or Spitfire.

 

Or that super sexy IS-2 at the bottom right.

Cool.

 

Looking at the instructions, at least 500 of the parts are just for the tracks.

At least they gave me a jig for them, so I guess it shouldn't be too bad.

 

But you had my hopes up, when you said several versions.

Wait, are the tracks like, the workable Trumpeter tracks, or are they like, the 4-pieces-to-assemble-track things Ive seen from Dragon beforehand?

Nice collection you have there, Lethalhavoc.   Given what You have, personally I would do something with the Bergetiger & Tiger II together in a recovery setting.    I just finished building a new workbench in the garage, now I can start repairing/ rebuilding some of the models I have.

There's no cement for the pins, so I would guess that they're workable.

​If you haven't seen it already, find James May's Toy Box episode where he recreated an Airfix model of a Supermarine Spitfire, all of the plastic parts just like the original from his childhood . . . in 1:1 scale.

 

​     Nice would love to see that. Will check it out.

I know the Feeling :teethhappy:​  E-Bay can be rather addictive.   Always on the lookout for rare & unusual kits.  First off, I have to repair the Tirpitz, got damaged in the move to Vegas years ago. Going to have to spend some serious time on the brass railings.

Go for the 13/40.  Cool looking tank.  I remember building a few of those Tamiya kits when I was a kid.  Looks like the hobby evolved quite a bit since then.

As it stands at the moment the M3 Lee is winning, i'll keep this going until Friday.
