M.a.K. conversion

Recommended Posts

This is a "what if" project converting a vinyl M.a.K walker into a Wermacht Gun Carrier. The bits and pieces were all from the spares box and the main cost was the primer paint.

It was a boxed collectable from Japan swapped by a pen pal way before the ebay generation.

I just sawed off the rear canopy and swapped it with a DIY platform and Italeri gun (the 1/35th EBoat I think).

It was very much a fun project, no need to worry about right paint etc etc.

Not too sure but I think that is a Kafer (Cockroach or beetle)

Nice job BTW

Health & Safety will insist on harness' for the guncrew!

Edit. After a search around, it seems this one is called Gladiator.

Which doesn't tie in with most of the others having WW2 German

related names. The six legged one is Kafer. Oh. those crazy Japanese!

From memory (which is highly suspect!) I think the box called it a Gradiator. Have not seen any around for quite some time, was this a collectable collectable...oh dear.

Lovely idea -- using the hatch for the aircraft recognition symbol is really good!
