Anti-grav Ma.K prototype tank- Panzer Schnecke A. MK1.

Recommended Posts

I like it a lot... but it doesn't quite scream tank, without a great big gun in a turret or casemate set-up ala Stug. With the smaller guns in the forward sponsons i get fast attack craft ?

Cheers and totally agree with the "With the smaller guns in the forward sponsons i get fast attack craft" comment and the massive jet out back helps with that look, at the moment I can not see a great big gun being added but as this is still evolving who knows what is going to be added to it....

I also like fast attack craft. To me that suggests something launched from one ship to attack another?

Something like an above surface torpedo using anti gravity & ground effect lift.

Perhaps some old 1/48th drop tanks down the sides as pre-recovery/post battle flotation tanks?

And a grey/blue colour scheme?

I'll go now and leave you to ponder your own ideas though.

Lot more to think about but like the idea of a torpedo...

Front is just about finished, some hight build primer next should help with my not so perfectly smooth finish and Im an with curving some plaplate for the sides, useing 0.75mm so I can scribe some pannels into it but its tricky to get it to bend even using a former aka rolling pin. Messing around with some greeblies as well.

And with all my box of bits open and a load of tank parts to use up the ball tank popped into my head last night....

That's the bigger parts all glued on to the underside. Some more filling and sanding once set and then I can start on the hatches, vents and all the fun little bit and bobs....
