This is a model of a projected recce tank cancelled in 1943, it's a cut down revell Panther with a turret from a matchbox Puma and a lot of filler


PS Todd They're going to make it across the river in Dunston(Gateshead) at the Federation brewery

Nice Updates Lazlo

Now that real is an odd ball tank, makes sense to use existing components but what a strange looking vehicle. I suppose it will look more in place once painted and camoflaged.

Nice piece of kitbashing.  Looks very Soviet circa 1970s-ish.

Cool!  :wub:

While I am by no means an armour specialist I almost see a Hetzer influence happening here. Hetzer with a turret and a touch of respectable armour. Maybe it's the tiny size with the christie suspension. (am I thinking about the right tank?)

Looks like it might fit in one of those gliders the German Paras used.  
Getting back into modeling


Reminds me of a Dalek, Dunston eh!  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D
