Damn, wrong scale!  ;D

Seriously though, it's pretty cool even in 1/72 scale. For me, I think it would work as a close stand in for the Panther-like walking tanks used by Helvetia in the (sadly under appreciated) anime series Sora no Woto.

As I said to someone who seemed properly upset a company was releasing a 1/32 Fouga Magister (as opposed to what, he didn't say): they can make what they want!





That IS weird though.

If it only had a couple more pairs of legs.  Then it could be a SPIDER TANK :P

Every step it takes it sinks into the soil, or tarmac, and cracking cement as it walks, because the ground pressure of those feet.  ;D

1/72 B-2 test build:







Beautiful on the exterior, but they definitely have some of the internals wrong, way wrong and, in some cases, out of position.  A quarter-century after I worked on it and some things still remain clear in my memory.  Additionally, they don't even have the APUs nor the intake doors for them and the doors are easily noticeable when the aircraft is sitting on the ground.

They also missed the anti-grav units, primary AI pilot and matter displacement projector. Amateurs...
