Here's something else that has customising possibilities:

Don't know about hot-rodding this one, but it certainly has possibilities: remember the "pirate trams" discussion... ;D

Blimey, they were still running in East Berlin when I lived in West Berlin in 1978!

I almost got arrested by a Schupo when I tried to take a photo of one, his grounds being that they could be used as troop transports!  :banghead: :banghead:

Hmmm, that could make a good diorama, couldn't it? The tram on its base with a model of me toting camera at rifle point.....  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

1/35th scale 'Sharotank' ball-tank available now. Apparently this is the start of a line of What Ifs from Miniart. :thumbsup:

I quite like the idea of one of these converted into a lunar rover... :wacko:

I'm still waiting on their Russian Tank Riders, because the picture showed them on a Sherman.
Though now it seems they're on a T-34/76, so wrong tank and too early for my wants.

*Sigh*

Still, I probably have enough in the way of Tamiya and Dragon to pick and choose anyway.

Cool, thanks for the heads-up.  :thumbsup:
Always interesting to know what's out there.

I might still save my pennies though, and use wot I got.

I could easily see that Hummingbird in US livery.

Say it's in an ATL where the Nazis never quite came to power but where Germany is locked into a war with the Soviet Union.  Thus the Germans need all the hard currency they can get in order to pay for all the war material they're buying from the US and elsewhere.  Thus the Flettner company sends over a few copies to the US Army Air Corps for test and evaluation.

In return, Republic sends some P-47s over to the German Republic for use on the Eastern Front...

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Found two other boxings of the Sharotank:

Kugelpanzer, German captured machine

Ski-equipped winter version

Also, this little lovely, in German or captured US markings:

I can see that as Felix Leiter's ride, wingman to 007 in Little Nellie. :mellow:

Yeah.  Never been too keen on those things.  They'd have had the same pilot view issues the Salmon did.  However, if used as the basis of a whiff with conventional wings and tails...

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Yeah - swept wings with the engines in the roots. Tail empenage of your choice.

Possibilities... but it's the wrong scale for me... for which my wallet is thankful!
