And the Object 279 comes with a rather cool figure in NBC garb!

Combine the NBC garbed soldier with the 'iron mask' from the French tanker in the St. Chamond kit.  ;D

Be good if they or someone else released a set of those Soviet soldiers. You could game Chernobyl Stalker then... ;D

Build review of Takom's Object 279 - just click on image below to go to it.



Still think it would look appropriate as some sort of Sci-fi vehicle.

Other pics I've seen of this tank gave the impression that it was quite a large one.  Seeing the figure beside it, it doesn't look that big at all ---

I was thinking as I was reading the review, I'd have hated trying to fix a broken track or damaged roadwheel on the inner runs.

I agree it would have been a bitch, but probably something able to be avoided in contact provided both on one side didn't go.  I have the similar thought whenever I see one of these on the road:



Mind you, as a whiff, I wonder how one would go replacing the twin tracks with a single wide track?

Ditch the turret, sand down & fill the turret ring, add a few greeblies over it, too, & scale-o-rama it to either 1/72nd or 1/144th, with the drivers periscopes acting as command/control centre view-ports.

You now have a very big sci-fi exploration (or similar) vehicle. 8)

Mind you, as a whiff, I wonder how one would go replacing the twin tracks with a single wide track?

I'll let you make the tracks for that, mate! ;D

That Objekt 279 would be ideal to be battling with the AMT Gigantic insects (arachnids). As Homer Simpson has pointed out, radiation makes things bigger.
