I am guessing it’s going to be a universal carrier (Bren carrier)

Clue 4 - the allied vehicle has the drive sprocket in the rear.
Didn't they all? Mk IV, Comet, Cent, Chieftain...…….. :D

Rear sprocket....

There goes the Stuart and any of the Sherman variants, including the Hellcat....

But the Cromwell and its variants are still in the hunt ;-)

Yes, it has to be British.

When 'rear sprocket drive' was mentioned the very first WWII Allied vehicle that popped in to my mind was an armored bulldozer... and I'm sure I'm wrong about that. But I can hope!

To put my twopeneth in the pot, I reckon a Churchill or Matilda for the allied choice ( both been in pieces at Bovington recently) and a Marder or a panzer IV for the German contenders.
Whatever the choices are they will far superior to the fibre glass contenders out there ( don’t mention oil soaked de-lamination) DW

t34 re-run.

remember guys, this is for summer (uk) release. therefore r&d plus prototype build is a tight time frame. given the kt & jt kit sizes and production run i'm sticking with p4 & t34 76/85 re-run............aaargh new kit announcements are mind bending.
