Will they (Amusing Hobby) be including an interior with this kit?  Something that AFV Club/HobbyFan neglected to do with their LVTP-5 kit and instead soaked the modeler by offering the interior as a resin accessory from HobbyFan.

I can just see a number of those providing air defence for a V-2 TEL based on a Maus chassis.  Perhaps a large number of these on the perimeter of a group of the V-2 TELs, possibly with some SPAAG units also mounted on Panther II chassis mixed in.

Love child resulting from the encounter of a Churchill and a Char B1?

World of Tanks [WoT] and War Thunder [WT] have both generated interest in armor subjects that would normally be ignored so I guess we should be grateful.

The ARL 44 replaced French Panther tanks. I guess they needed to build something so they could say they were still a power to be reckoned with. This may make a good whif - if France had fought on past 1940.

The Modelling News has some pics and info on both the ARL-44 (LINK!) and the Badger/Conqueror tank destroyer (LINK!).

The ARL 44 has always had a weird appeal for me, so I may just have to get one. I wonder how many of these kits will get repurposed as Leman Russ tanks for games of Warhammer 40K? Sure, it’s probably a bit big but for ridiculous, over the top sci fi/fantasy, that’s not really a bad thing.
