Based on Tamiya B1 BIS and Meng ZPU-4

This B1-BIS had been sleeping on a shelf for a long time. I decided to transform this tank into a post-apocalyptic vehicle.

Thank you. I didn't choose the colour yet. Maybe yellow with reddish guns. Or pale blue. I don't know...

How would the operator reach the instrument panel on the side?

Hi Timothy,

good question !

That's a science-fiction vehicle and it doesn't stick to reality... I put the radio operating panel here only for esthetical reason. I just want to have fun...

This is really cool! I love your creative combination of elements so there is something unique about it from every angle.
Can't wait to see how you finish it.

Thank you Chris.

When I started this build, I didn't imagine that I would have so much fun doing it.

I have one or two old and unfinished models waiting. I think they will soon have a new and unexpected life...

That looks amazing - I might do something similar with a Mk.IV kit I have in the stash. Reminds me of the Nutcracker from Maschinen Krieger.

Now that's really cool. Sort of a Steam/Diesel punk look to it.
