Now just remember the Aztecs and Mayans need to be finished before December 21, 2012 so the world will not be destroyed   Evil  Evil

As the world's going to be destroyed anyway, is there much point?  Evil

Panhard Armoured Car

Is this a serious "master" it looks so shoddy? No detail. This is a backward step or was it just "banged out"to satisfy a few people on the Pendraken Forum? Come on Pendraken, look at what is being done in 6mm by GHQ. I did the Yom kippur Game at Salute using GHQ because Pendraken did not respond and the quality of GHQ is excellent. I realise that Pendraken forum members will condemn this heresy but I am a potential customer and I don't like what I see. I don't expect you to reconsider but if a company only listen to followers but customers then that company dies. ( The kings new clothes comes to mind)  Please raise your game on the detail side. Your in charge of your designers Huh???

I only expect negative response from the forum to this, but I run a business and I can't afford to be weak when a supplier delivers second rate. It's sent back.

Having never seen a Panhard Armoured car in my life, i wouldnt know one if it ran over my foot, so I cant pass comment. However I would say you are more likely to get negative comments from the tone of your message. If you dont like something, no big deal, there are some figures I dont like, prehaps if you didnt like it you could have said so in a different way.
Yep some may see your comment as heresy, however, I would suggest a lot more see it as bit rude and heavy handed.
obviously this is my view and cannot be read as anyone elses.

While the quality of GHQ is indeed excellent, so is the fecken price!! That and its too damn small for these ageing eyes and stubby fingers.

The Panhard looks perfectly ok to me and I will be having a few as recce units at some point. Rarely will a master knocked up out of plasticard and green (yellow) stuff look anywhere near as good as the production metal once its had a coat of paint. Even my slap dash paint jobs look good enough for government work on my Pendraken armies.

The GHQ stuff has massively exaggerated detail.  Huge rivets where at 1/300 you should barely be able to see the things.

It's a look some people really like but I prefer my models to be more realistic.

Well I will wait until I see the actual casting before judging.

Oh and by the way I think people who run businesses ought to invest in a little more customer service...

There happened to be an enthusiastic buyer of a certain company's rules who whilst visiting Salute and wanting to purchase some more spent a good while being ignored several times; as the purveyor was too busy shooting the breeze with a pal = no sale...  Wink

So it would seem some rivet heads should be visible, but probably smaller than then on the other 10mm model?

I don't know about other forum members, but I find the comments regarding Pendraken customer service well off the mark.

I have found them to be nothing but supportive and to my mind go out of their way to meet customer requests.

As someone once said you cannot please all the people all the time and very few business can achieve that.

What did they not respond to?

As to the modellers, Leon has pointed out many times, many of them do not work exclusively for Pendraken nor in 10mm scale. They are all, I believe, self-employed and therefore are suppliers and not employees. In your business are you in charge of your suppliers?
