That's a great comparison Chris! Whenever I start thinking about getting a model from another company I will look at this!

Glad to help with some info, Redleg.

Pick up just arrived yesterday, about 400 items. Need to send these to a guy I know in Keystone Heights, FL. Old GHQ Marders with m.g. over rear ramp.

That is quite a collection, Chris! I am curious as to who makes the "brand X" T-14s and T-15s as I did not see a brand name for those. GHQ's do definitely appear to be superior in the details for sure.

Some stuff made by several different manufacturers.
5 Lpd 1A4 w/out barrels, 5 with as shown below, these CinC.

The plain l T-14 and T-15 May have been modeled off a shapeways 3-d print.
GCN used to offer metal T-14 & T-15. IIRC, those may have been the basis of his T-14/15s. I had reached out to a designer, he had indicated that he was working with a person to produce them for a royalty, as I was considering to do the same.

Convert those Cents to AVRE with the short-barrel 165mm gun.

Mike, good idea. Thank you, I may do that. Consider… bridge layers, CEVs, or 105s with camo netting.

Picked up these two turrets and two centurion hulls. Barrels broken off.
After posting on FB, Jim/PG made a suggestion was to make them CEV. One has a very short extension of a barrel, matched it with an engineering hull. The turret without any protrusion will need to wait until I am ready to use styrene barrel and camo netting.
Take care.

The evolution to the Sgt York is an upgraded system with similar feature in some cases.
First on an Abrams hull to keep up with the armored thrust.. Twin 40mm cannon.
Since these pictures, they are armed with Stinger pod to improve against
