    Just looking at the incredibly poor quality of the main wheel of the tank track alone, I would say this is a very bad cast fake.

    Jep - weak details in this badge were my first impression as well...

    Crappy fake based on the S&L design, this is a fairly modern turkey, note the weird eagles head, dimpled driving lights but especially the 'floating' swastika that is not joined to the tanks turret, something you'll never see on a genuine S&L badge. The scalloped rear is a total fantasy that is not found on any badge and the set up is one of many different sorts found on these. Some are maker marked on the rear of the swastika L/16 for S&L.

    I wish they were all this easy.

    It's pretty much all been said by the other guys. Dodgy looking eagle & the Swaz doesn't meet the panzer, sorry. Stewy
