Объект 279

Or Object 279. When I saw this I was reminded of the crazy tank designs in the Command and Conquer computer games. But, no, this tank really existed. This beast was intended to go where other tanks could not and survive the shockwave from a nuclear blast. I guess it didn’t work out as well as they hoped! Anyway, it looks like it will build into an imposing model (plus it has a cool name). I may have to give this a go, but wish me luck with all the wheels\tracks! I can foresee more than one collection having this, the German Maus, the American T28 and the British Tortoise.

Later … you can see a completed one here (the figure is brilliant).
