Anti-personnel does double duty as mine field clearing machine.
FU-280 variants are great.
Favorites:  Ming-5c & d    be available in resin or plastic soon?
I still buy into space shuttle transporter as mobile coastal defense gun battery.  Know if there is a kit of the transporter?

finsrin,
          there was a 1/400th transporter as part of a resin launch-tower kit.  But I think it would be esier to start with four 1/72nd Churchill tanks or maybe if you could find something suitable in a toy shop -- I had a look myself & it seems too expensive + lots of scratch-building with plastruct girders.

The Ming-5s can be altered from a Mig-15 which is what I used for the line-drawing.  A 1/72nd model based on a F-86 Sabre or FJ-1 Fury kit gave me the idea for the wing shapes - just need to do new wings & fin.

Your "Strawberry Jam" maker is a riot, raafif! I really like the hungry-looking shark's mouth on the gun tower! Sweet!

That Ming-5c screams out to be made variable geometry!

I took another look at that Fuji turboprop and I sure hope they have exceedingly smooth taxiways and runways 'cause there's minimal ground clearance with those props and I suspect that digging into dirt or concrete will not help them in their intended function.

contrarotating propellers helped for ground clearance anyway, maybe not enough but that was a good reason to use them here...
