...hull to mount all...

 

for these colorful Ratte turrets + missiles, maybe i could buy P.500 Gungnir, a complete what-if AFV (P.300 Traegerkreuzer is a less attractive choice) to display all in one.

size is reduced to half (still 30cm length), has flat surface on top of chassis to place turrets (i checked the manual in 1999.jp😗), overall details are better than blank P.1000. Also it included another Flak40 armor turret + kugelblitz. Those two-leg mechs not my cup of tea, but i already have two sci-fi walking tanks (from blackdog) to replace them. And it use piece-by-piece track system + functional wheels.

I've had my eye on the gungnir, I like those 4 soldier mechs it deploys.

last shot of E-chassis cum Ratte Weapons. There has >80 AFV / mecha waiting to share before this series/project. Therefore you won't see them until mid of 2025😵‍💫

btw, after crazy (fast) E-chassis + Ratte, I shall shift to enjoy Japanese sci-fi kits (from Five Star Stories, Macross, Votoms to EVA) & miniatures in winter, or even in spring. So won't update this thread periodically. 😗

i get interested in 1/35 military figures, plan to buy related AFV to match them, i.e. Tiger I & Pz III. Which brand will you choose? 

low price, fit molding, like Tamiya;

mid price, full of details, like Takom;

full interior, but doubled the price, like RYE Field Model?

 

Also, Tiger I has early, mid, late prod. What are their major different? (they just look same for me😵‍💫).

And Pz.III has many variants, from A to N. Which one is more famous? 

 

 

 

btw, i keep painting AFV, pair of walking tank for (future) P.500 😗

same as Mk.IV, both are hobbyboss 😉

i want Mk.I, Mk.II, but not see in 1/72 😭

Italeri do the mk1 there is no real mk2 available, the old Esci mk2 needs some serious surgery to get it to be one, there are 3D printed of a mk1B and Mk2B from SSmodels, the Trumpeter mk3 is better than the Revell mk3 but the Revell kit is the only one with an attempt at the ball and chain.

another lie cover image from trumpeter. 🤬

this kind level of details is available if published by Takom, Vespid, Zvezda, etc. But Trumpeter just use a 1/35 image on 1/72 cover art.😩

PS: those handrails besides window are replaced with copper wires by myself.
