Blast from the Past Vol.7

Evening all.

This is a model I built around the time I made the Atlas (scroll down). This was a scratchbuilt tank hunter based on a russ chassis.

The only GW part used is the hull sides and the tow chain ends. Quite enjoyable to make.

The initial aim was to make a sleek, low slung destroyer. I made the barrel quite long (made it firing solid ammunition, not laser quaser) and attached it and the mantle quite low down.

Favourite features - GS'd teddy bear (ode to dustbin men everywhere) and the tow style hunter killer proxy. Essentially designed as a remote device with a disposable munition.

I sold this to someone in Australia - so I never painted it. Here's a shot of the bits which are removeable (HK, cupola and aerial).

  1. I had forgotten you did this.

    In fact I don't remember the teddy bear at all.

    Very nice, prefer it to the Atlas actually. Hatches and other details are spot on.
