Maybe something like this, my idea was it to be RR Crecy powered but it could also be a turbo-prop;

This time something much smaller but still intriguing - Jeep Willys on Firestone Cylindrical tires:

(well I'm not sure if this qualifies to the GB - it was still created and tested during WWII)

And another Soviet monster - Obiekt 279 (or UFO tank  ;D):

For some reason I can't see the pic's - except now, while I write this & look at the preview.... Very odd.

Object 279 I'm passing-familiar with. The jeep looks like a toy with those tyres.

And the Renault FT is too early ... looks like an impressive kit anyway, though.

The fact is the FT-17 was still in use by the Germans. It was one of a number of French and other types that were used for airfield defense and anti-partasen work. Many of these were found in France and the Italian's used their version as static defenses as well. We think of the King Tigers and Panthers but there were lots of Polish tankettes used to pull all sorts of advanced weapons. RPM and Mirage make a number of interesting kits. In fact,this is an area which gets far too little interest. Don't forget that the Germans used all sorts of captured equipment both modified and unmodified to free up their primary equipment for front line use.
