Release the O.G.R.E.! 

I always wanted one of these to kit bash with an M1 Abrams.  The Peddinghaus Airmodel vacu-form conversion was the only game in town until now or scratch-building.

For postwar non-NAZI use, there's the aptly named Hacker Motormuli M80 a post war tractor built from the RSO. There's also the Waldschlepper Type Deutz 1500, a halftrack made with RSO parts.

Meh! 

Another T-XX to compete with all of the other T-XX? 

I would have been more impressed if they had taken the time to actually create something "new" such as the GSP ferry in the background...

That's really not very effective camouflage and concealment, lucky they are only countering WWI style armored cars.

Agreed on the poor choice of position, but aren't those GAZ-AA Soviet trucks in the shooting gallery?

Those look like GAZ-AA. Where's the fourth figure? Out in the forest taking a break? Or maybe the guy taking the picture?

Hmmm...maybe do as a heavy APC in the same line as a Namer?
Kit acquired from eBay a couple of weeks ago.  It consists of a complete Porsche Tiger hull and a very large one-piece moulding of the armored cover.  Sadly, it will not just drop on top of an M1 Abrams hull.  The positive though is that I now have a template to use in making an armored cover for an M1 Abrams hull or pretty much any other hull that the original part does not fit on without modification.  Anyone need a Porsche Tiger hull?

Wish I had known you wanted a template, I have the 1/35th scale templates for a Rammtiger
that were published in a Japanese armour modelling magazine back in the ‘80s.
Want a copy?  ;)

Thanks Jon.  I would certainly appreciate a copy of that template.
