That bottom one sure looks like a bogey...

For those who are rooting for a track!

It actually looks like the hub for a wheel of a Dingo Scout car! Although, there should be nine holes, (rather than eight) with a space between number nine and number one and the holes should go all the way through the hub!

A Dingo would be cool!!! Then again... so would anything! So much armour... so little time!

But that outside ring of holes could also take a gear wheel, couldn't it?

Still hoping for something Edwardian... but that's sure looking track-ish!

The larger 8 holes must be for the rubber shock absorbing part of the road wheel (I hope we are not looking at the Famo parts as that is really the next model) so maybe a Conqueror or a Cruiser, Did those road wheels have any shock absorbing built in? It's defo tracked anyway init.

The Edwardian era ended in 1910. I don't think Armortek are intending to go back THAT far .... :D

Crusader, and we are seeing the inside face of an unfinished sprocket hub. First two pictures are lost on me though.

I recognised some of the photos, hopefully it will not need big batteries or a sound module and would definitely be Armorteks finest work to date!
Ps . do we get 50% discount if we name the beast ?

Technically, I think they charge the spoiler-guy a 50% surcharge on their next kit :D

Darn it!

Well I suppose that's the end of this thread for another year, what with the Mighty Famo

and the announcement of the Silver Ghost and mantle piece editions. :(

I can go on wishing to see a proper armored monster. Chieftain

Image

Chieftain out in the snow, Twenty minutes out in the snow, and a couple of hours washing and chasing out the moisture in the tracks with WD40. This is where model wheels trump model tracks. :roll:

Still, got to think of the special editions that could be run out.

The Famo 8.8 Flak 37 (SF) auf Zugkaftwagen 18t.

Image

And with a little reworking of the Ghost.............. a master spy vehicle. :lol:

The nice thing about a chassis... is that you can do a lot of interesting things with it...

Image

Tender on early Ghost

Image

Field-modified armoured car tender in Hejaz.

Image

Pre-WW2 era RAF armoured car modified as a tender with a ring-mount.

All that said, I love the look of the Chieftain! One of the greatest tanks of all time for sure! Beautiful build above!

Cheers,
