The mini's look fine, well done! With some micromagnets, you could have made both options for the Panther/Jagdpanther by interchanging the body and chassis. Maus (Loco) and I have used the magnets to build several other GF9 models into different variants, some are contained in this thread. axisandalliesunderground.com/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=2358&start=20
"Tanks" is a fun "Beer and Pretzels" tabletop game. Its a great way to introduce younger people to wargaming without overloading them with rules. In the end our Group always goes back to AAM because of it superior game mechanics and versatility of gameplay. There is a Facebook group for tanks that I belong to and the players are constantly trying to incorporate ATG's and soldiers into the game. Thats why we still love the old AAM.

I didn't reread this thread until I was done and ready to put pictures up, otherwise I would have. There's always the T-34 and Panzer IV to do that with.
I do have it so the German tops are interchangeable and they already encouraged the Shermans to be that way.
The expansions of the Puma, KV-85 and IS-152 have enough parts to do multiple minis using magnets. Some just need magnets on the barrels, everything else is common to each version. There may be others too but I haven't seen any yet. Sadly the Super Pershing/Pershing cannot be made into two options, its one or the other.
Some mini's didnt require repurchasing because my AAM collection was able to recycled into "Tanks" games.
I'll have to get some pics of mine on here.... I have full platoons or near platoons of almost all the releases, most of the maps, and 3D buildings and terrain. I have a play group that plays once a month.
Also, you can get assembly guides on the Flames of War website that are more detailed and explain the parts. The TANKS kits are just the Flames of War plastics line in single packs. Flames of War has decals, commanders for open hatches, etc., as well.
Here's 2 of my Shermans (Firefly from Sherbrooke Fusiliers - the one that got Wittmann, and Sherman V from the Canadian Grenadier Guards) advancing through a French town. It's the Caen map with Plastcraft 15mm houses.
