Military Modelling

and I just liked the look of this up to date modern, hi tech kit of an old German subject. Looks so, chucked together as a last resort, but a deadly one at that.

don't ask me why, but I've always been a fan of post war German Armour supplied to the Bund by the Americans, when they moved up to M60, the Gerrys got M47, when Gerry got Leopard, Hohne Anti tank range got the M47, as hard targets. I've had fun shooting at these. whispers...I understand todays troops don't get to shoot at old tanks anymore, terrible.

it was mentioned on the Bovington Tank museum page, here... well that's annoying, the tank workshop diaries episode where they go to the range and strip out chieftain components from old Bridge layers and recovery vehicles, has in fact been taken down, can't find it on youtube. Someone in authority said that the policy has changed or moved from shooting at hulks to canvas screens, can't find it anywhere now.

??? I’m not up to date on AFV recognition!
Try to imagine something from your era with all the bins knocked off, but the gun crutch still in place, as is the MRS.
 
No interior detail of course, but oddly the kit includes the top of the pack, and the engine hatches can be modelled open or closed. I made a M47 by Italeri back in the 70s, that had that same feature. Taking another closer look at the box art, this kit is a product by Tamiya in conjunction with Italeri, the Japanese italian company making a German subject. The old Axis Nations ganging up again. This is proof of study before you buy rule I normally follow, I just got sucked in by the box art!

I came across this at the S Yorks Aviation Museum:
