Just as a point of interest,I owned one of the original Peerless 155mm gun. It would have been a bear to build. Unlike the later Italarie/Testors issue it had a metal barrel to which were added plastic parts at both ends. It also had real springs  that nobody who tried could compress and metal rods to make up the assembly both sides of the barrel. This was plastic in the Testors issue as was the barrel.  It was not motorized,however.  But the biggest laugh was the "radio" both had. It was so large a man could get inside !!!  It was really a field generator and a very nice one at that !!!  I had the chance to compare both editions and was glad to see those metal parts go !!! 
I may be old but I'm not dead ... yet anyway ... !!!    And NO I did not know Richard III !!!!!!

Hmmm... That 40M Nemrod looks oddly interesting. I wonder if it would be possible to build it as a Finnish-service Landsverk L42.

Airborne Trailer !!!!!!!  :icon_sueno:
Because I needed one for a Captured 251 Halftrack build I found  a single picture of Guards Armoured Division with captured German Sd. Kfz 251 Type D half track|orange-tim
I bought a set of two from Resicast last year.

Always the the way.
Want a list of stuff I have scratchbuilt/heavily modified only to then come out in injected plastic ?

Yep, I'm in the same boat! I have a list of subjects I want to build but after some previous fiascos with funky old resin kits and subsequent releases of better and cheaper injection kits, I'm reluctant to put out the money. And it's not just the ONE injection kit of the obscure/experimental/paper project subject that will come out but two or three!

That Nimrod turret looks modern enough that you could swap it onto something from the 1950s/1960s, and the gun is, of course universal. Walker Bulldog perhaps, as an alternative to the M-42 Duster? Comet or Cromwell as a means of using up obsolete hulls? You could even give it range-only radar like an M-163...

Comet hull would be a good choice for British Army or maybe a Centurion if the turret diameter is a bit large.

mmm that Nimrod is a kit iv been eagerly awaiting ever since i saw the Toldi kits released :)

i just wish some manufacturer would make a model of the BMW tourer in 35th (same type as Hasegawa did in 48th !) a number were used as staff runabouts during the war with one even being fitted out for infra red driving trials :)

Bronco's Versuchsflakwagon 8.8cm Flak. 41 Grief is another il have to pick up for my late war building theme :)

Mights as well use the equivalent turret to the Crusader III AA:



Though I suppose you could say that the Nimrod turret design was an alternate contender.

Note that in an odd turn-around, the first tank is 1/48 and the glider is 1/35. :-\
