Cheap, yes, but definitely not "inexpensive".  The plastic marvels 
turned-out by the Anvilus Plastic Works have definitely achieved first 
place in the "cheap-looking" category.  (Rumor has it that Fred Simms is 
"easy" as well as "cheap" ;-)

However, with regard to "oddest", based on a series of spectator 
interviews, exit polls, market acceptance panels and blind-tests 
conducted by the world-famous O-de-Pact (Tri-Pact's exclusive Marketing 
Agency based in Paris), the T-34 consistently comes out ahead of the 
Hetzer in the "Oddity" category.  Apparently, the average spectator 
considers the Hetzer to be more "cute" than "odd", because it reminds 
them of a harmless child's toy, not a war machine.  In fact, the Hetzer 
  got the highest score from the "Girls 4-10yrs" group, because they 
thought it would be a nice vehicle for Barbie to drive around in.

Tri-Pact welcomes the oppportunity to once again ensure peace through 
superior fire-power. New vehicles will be conducting field trials 
shortly and will be ready to join the veteran force by the end of 
October.  Furthermore, a growing group of volunteers will be on-hand to 
help move Tri-Pact supplies and weapons as needed on the battlefield.
