Whilst we are on the subject of KT's firing, if you have a firearms licence and a private range the Armortek KT is a fantastic platform for a simulated 88mm cannon, this video is as close as we can get to the real thing, please do not try this at home!

Nice patina for reference.

As I am researching the KT for her makeover I came across this very nice example, great model?

Hello Phil,

thats interesting to see and very impressive. A lot more smoke, wow :shock: 8)

But pretty obvious nothing for the public :wink:

I tried to get the smoke of the engine smokers transfered to the barrel but with no success, so the option with the cig was born :wink: :lol:


Best regards,

Uwe

Uwe, your creation is just brilliant, one of the best I have seen and especially effective in half light, and totally legal! :D

Cheers Dunc, it was quite scary making the VT, anything that is radio controlled and has a live firing content even blanks keeps the mind focused somewhat! :D ...Phil.

Something I stumbled across on the tube, it's a mix of old film, video made to look old and VT of 1/6th models.....nice, some double take moments which make you look again and again.

And a few of my maybe unseen period photos to peruse.

It's from Modelcollect's 'Fist of War' fanciful 1946 range. They have done a number of 'paper panzers' and then let their imagination run riot with walker tanks etc. (All in 1/72). I have the 1/72 version of the P1000 'Ratte' sitting in a rather large box waiting to be built and I will probably add this cut down K5E on two E75 chassis as it appeals to me :-)
