1/35 Hetzer top or T-55 tank turret on a U.S.S. Monitor-like hull.  :))

Didn't the Soviets actually build ships like that?

There was a resin 1/35th model available at one time ... may have been by Mig ?  Was sorely tempted but the price put me off :(

They were mainly used in back-water rivers & lakes ... did good service against German troops & insurrectionists

North Korea still has some things along those lines: yep, that's an 85mm tank gun in the forward turret:

That's because it is: Sariwon class corvette

Arsenal ship concept?  I note the hull number follows in the BB numbering sequence.
