Not sure if these line drawings of Cypriot AMX-30 upgrade using T-80 components are real proposals or just fanarts...... is anyone here able to verify?
Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?

Fan concept from Wargaming.

Think of it like a Lorraine-40t-based, better-looking Conway, I guess.

I would like to model the AMX-50:




There are 1/72 kits available (ewww...):



But I prefer 1/35 for armour subjects.  There is a tank hunter variant in this scale but no tank proper:

First iteration of AMX-50 120mm, converted straight from the AMX-50 100mm.  Probably doesn't have the weight problem of the later AMX-50 Surblindé or the turret shot trap of the ultimate AMX-50 Surbaissé, but gun elevation is poor.

Does anybody do a 1/35 scale model of the Batignolles-Châtillons?

It seems not. Attached is someone's attempt at a Batignolles-Chatillon Char 25T in 1/35.

The modeller said that he used M1 Abrams road wheels (which look a bit big to me), KV-2 lower hull and tracks, and plastic card for the upper hull and turret.

Cool photo of the restored prototype:



As far as kits goes, I believe there is only this one in 1/72:
