Cutting up two T80 kits and working from a dozen photos and one Russian-language magazine with a side view drawing I built this - my idea of a REAL tank. Still waiting for its side skirts, note the clever (lazy) use of toilet tissue to cover the bits of the turret that the Russians don't want you looking at - also saves building fiddly detail on a model as well. The pride of my modern wargame army - the defrensive system really work!! Next we've got one of my ideas after reading far too much about externally-mounted guns, and an old RUSI article suggesting that MBTs should carry autocannon for soft skin killing and a mortar for long-range soft targets, leaving the 152mm main gun for anti-tank duties. I decided a "battlefield" salvage rocket pod would probably be useful. About six months after I built I find that the Russians have actually studied something along these lines. Fictional camo scheme used for my country in a wargames campaign we had, the slogan is Ubi'itsa = murderer. Unfortunately every time I put it the wargames table opponents took one look, decided itt was the biggest threat and killed every single time before it got a shot off. Here's my take on the Conway, Centurion hull, 183mm gun. For some reason it never caught on. And there's very little about - I worked off a few photos available on the net. Another fictional camouflage scheme.
