It's just got to be a huge Jagdtiger with internal cannon detail in metal, what else! :D

Being a WW1 aficionado, I'd love to see a Renault FT. Probably small enough to be done as a Kompact Kit!

It was the first tank with a rotating turret. An innovative design. And I'm just a big fan of the Great War technology and armor.

But on this one... I'm probably a minority of one!

Cheers,

RPR

An FT would be nice, but a Whippet would be better ..... :wink:

Hello All,

found the right topic, here are my favorites, some smaller and cheaper ones and easier to handle:

WWI Renault FT17
SdKfz 101 Panzerkampfwagen 1
SdKfz 121 Panzerkampfwagen 2

and a bigger one:

SdKfz 231/232 Radio-Car with the big antenna on his roof, 6-wheel and 8-wheel version
The difference between man and boy's, is the price of the toy's.

Tough call but I would love to see something fast like an m18. Or something rugged like a T55.

Edit: that being said, if they produce another panther or stug I would want it.

Edit; I think Hetzer would be really great too.

Bren Carrier... Kompack Kit...

Full-sized tank... Someday I'd like one. But I love armored cars.

Cheers,

I would go with Robert, a Bren Carrier, i.e. small armour which is easier to transport and house,

Regards

How about one of Hobarts funnies?

Or if staying with more traditional tanks I'd like a Lee/Grant or Crusader III

I would like a WW1 Whippet French or WW2 Carrier or even better a WW1 Renault FT, great small vehicles for those with restricted finances.
