Here's a SPG version I made with an enlarged Sherman turret. I had to cut down a lot of the 105mm to make it fit. I took it from a M7 Priest model, lengthened the barrel and added a muzzle brake. It's a tight fit in the turret, so ROF would be lower than the open top of the Priest.

Where is the engine in this design?  Mid mounted - separating driver etc from rear compartment?

The hull is a Ruski MTLb so I think the engine is still mid-mounted.

This should help illustrate things. The hull is transparent while the white crew and driving compartments and the blue engine area are not. Purely my own conjecture, not sure if that's how the real thing looks like.

I didn't like how my 1st scout helicopter looked so I redid it using the entire Mohawk fuselage.

The smaller green one is the Ordnance Quick Firing 6-pounder Anti-Tank Gun. In US service it was called the 57mm Gun M1. It was the standard towed AT gun for a long while during WW2 on the Allied side. I think they should have had something bigger even than the 17 pounder. So I upscaled a 75mm barrel from a Hellcat to 90mm and added a muzzle brake from a Sherman E8. The gunshield is from a 75mm AT gun on a M3 halftrack that I modified. The wheels are the giant truck wheels I'm using as standard on my wheeled units. The rest of the chassis is a combination of the 105mm artillery and a german PAK40.

The big truck wheels are .863m in diameter by .177m in width.

No for 2 reason. WW2 UK 3d models are few and far between. So I'm not messing with them.
Also, UK designs from that era won't win any beauty contests, so I'm definitely not touching them.

Two additional designs under test and development were the 105mm Anti-Tank Gun T8 on carriage T19 and the 105mm Anti-Tank Gun T8 on carriage T17. 
Both weapons are listed under this Wikipedia entry: 105mm Anti-Tank Gun T8
The T8 on carriage T17 looks to be quite innovative while the T8 on carriage T19 looks more traditional and the spoked wheels are reminiscent of a German PaK ATG

Hot Dog. We have a wiener.

Yes. A WW2 Warthog. I found detailed model and I spent many hours trying to de-futurize it. I of course, gave it a M35 face. Then I went about and changed a lot of the super futuristic stylings of the boxes and suspension, dashboard. Everything I could.

Sad to say that I am more familiar with the HALO Warthog than I would care to be.  I acquired four of the Revell Snap-Kit Warthogs that are touted as being "1/32nd scale" but a much closer to being 1/24th or 1/25th scale when you place a 1/32nd or 1/35th scale figure anywhere near the model.  To make matters worse, I inadvertently threw away the clear parts for the initial four Warthog kits [kits are boxed in clear plastic trays within the shoddy side opening box and easily missed] so I ended up acquiring four more of the damned things so I could complete the first four kits.  This gave me four additional Warthogs that I have been modifying to remove the problematic hole in the cargo bed by covering it over with a new floor.  The figures and stupid noise-making weapons were all donated and are not missed.

M40 Boarhound. Because it's not a Warthog. It's the total opposite. It's the Anti-Warthog.. Therefore it's a hound that hunts hogs.

Not posted in a while. There is a new game on STEAM that just dropped this week called FLYOUT.

You design and fly your own planes and helicopters. It's very difficult and there is a learning curve. The hardest part for me is learning how to design a piston engine. I don't understand fuel mixes and gear ratios so when I go to test it, there is very little power. My first 3 planes looked pretty, but could not fly. Yesterday I tried to make my WW2 Autogyro. After 2 hours of fiddling with the stats, it flew! I can hover, but the push prop is very weak. Only managed to go 75mph forward. The two engines are Allisons from a P-40. The bore diameter, stroke, and number of pistons is correct, but I had to guess on the gear radios to make it work. Lots and lots of guess work.
