A bit more progress:

Engine at the front makes it more vulnerable.  Better install some sort of reactive or ablative armor.  Unless that is the sections already on the front.  In which case; Good choice including reactive/ablative armor to protect the engine at the front.

It's a choose your own comment adventure story!  Who remembers those books?

Turn to thread page 7

Not that I disagree about the vulnerability factor, but in all fairness, the venerable M113 had its engine block up front, so its hardly ground breaking location for a rear access APC design...



Although the under-fuselage mounted exhaust pipes would probably require significant amounts of maintenance after any rough terrain work, and would be better with some sort of snorkel attachment for water crossing...

I really like this one though, but always did love the Panther tank...

I'm gald you like it :)

All the other stuff... it's a sci-fi tank... so I can come up with all sorts of explanations for the bits that could do with changing... but I won't :D

The Panther Russ is finished except for trimming the tracks (I'll do that when I paint it) and the Hanomag pattern Chimera is also finished apart from the side skirts (which are made but will need to be left off until the wheels are painted)... I am currently decorating the Wolverines :) . There will be pix when they are finished :) .

... I also need to sort out the legs for sale... Hmmm...

It's got to a point where I am going to end up messing them up because I am bored with them so, as far as they are concerned, the tank and transport are finished for now:



The tape holding the top of the tank on and the sideskirts on the transport on, is just temporary because I will need things to be removable for painting :) .

Very nice GS work there. You really should start making your own range of stuff.

Good to know. I'm sure you have quite a following.
I've been selling a few of my sculpts lately to Alternative Armies.
