Tanks are obviously our best defence against them. ;)

<Whovian Hat on> Not true! They flew in The Chase and it was always implied they could hover, it was simply the case that the BBC effects budget did not stretch to showing it until Remembrance of the Daleks. ;)

Bit of a thread necro, but has anybody taken a closer yet at the model kits Meng is selling? The quality of these kits is astounding. Exquisitely detailed, very clean fabrication, next to no excess flashes on the individual parts, the parts fit without any(!) need to file down edges etc., every kit comes with an assortment of etched metal parts (I forgot the English term for them) and the road wheels/suspension of the tanks actually move! Meng is a Chinese company. It does NOT conform to the stereotype of cheap and faulty. At all.

I could not resist and bought a PzH 2000 in 1:35 (model no. 019, the one with the additional roof armour). 60+ Euros :shock:

But so well worth it.
