I'm thinking it might cost about the same to buy and restore that one as it would be to buy the 1/35 Revell kit on eBay right now!  ;D

I wonder if that Staghound behind it is for sale? I wouldn't mind having that for weekend family drives!

Combining the hull of a M42 Duster AA tank with the turret of an M18, the Type 64 Light Tank:





Used by the ROC Army on Taiwan.

Apparently (and rather unusually) a Japanese Type 91 105mm Howitzer..   Seems odd to put a Japanese gun on an American armoured vehicle but apparently it's what the ROC Army decided to do after it fled to Formosa.  More information available at Wart Hunder]War Thunder forum.  Zenrat posted this information over at What If after I asked exactly the same question.

Gun swap? Take the Type 91 out of the Tamiya Type 1 Ho-Ni (35331) for the ROC M10 SPH. Then plonk the 3-inch M1918 on to the Type 1 (perhaps pretending to be a Type 4 75 mm AA gun adapted for SP use?).

Likely 105mm Type 91 howitzer.  Those vehicles were demilitarized (i.e. having their guns sabotaged) prior to the acquisition; there were, OTOH, plenties of Japanese artillery pieces left behind as their former owners were sent packing.

Bismarck, one of the proposals for what would eventually become the Rooikat.

42 tons.  Originally equipped with an Olifant tank turret (which is essentially an up-armoured Centurion tank turret with a 105mm gun)...... looks like the TTD turret was tested on it as well.

Unsure if they are meant to be MBT's or tank destroyers.  Unsure as to the authorship.
