After their 1/35 M-ATV MRAP (LINK), Panda will release a 1/35 2S6M Tunguska/SA-19 Grison (LINK)!



Way cool!  :icon_beer:

with all those individual track links Object 279 is going to be a good contender for a Russian hovertank conversion.

Candidate platform for the hovercraft conversion is readily available with real rubber skirt from the Trumpeter LCAC Hovercraft kit and the 1:72nd scale LCAC is now on sale at Squadron :)

the Panda Object 279 is out & built on Missing Lynx ...... ok apart from crude & inaccurate surface finish on the front  :(
Priced at AU $44 + shippng from HobbyEasy.

Seems the Amusing Hobby kit is the same mould, perhaps less the PE fret.

I read something within the past year or so that suggested the M8 was once again being considered for the light tank uh, mobile gun system role. I’m not betting on that but I guess you never know.
