    A dodgy conversion by someone with a huge "Bits-Box", a science-fiction fixation and (Probably) too much spare time? :lol: :-?

    LOL - the turret & wheels of a Panther.
    The wings & rudders of a jet - probably one of the German X-planes from 'Luftwaffe 1946', but could also be something very modern...

    Quite a nice fantasy vehicle...
    Is it supposed to fly? :grin:

    What, haven't you guys heard? This is the German Überpanzer XII, the successor to the E100 that was going to own the Allies so big they would surrender upon hearing its tracks rattle in the distance.

    :grin:

    Ah - the wings are the rear wings & rudders of the F-15 Eagle!

    Was it made just for fun, or for a specific purpose (wargaming, or a story/theme)?
    Did you make it?

    Roel - it doesn't have tracks... :grin:

    Actually there are what I assumed were tracks along the back half of it, they appear to be pretty long links, but if the chasis originated from a science-fiction model to start off with (Such as a Games-Workshop one) then that would make sense.

    There appears to be a slightly odd mix of scales there as well!

    Where?
    There is the corner of a wheel, and some jagged distortion of the picture (see the gun barrel for an example).
    Black Jack, we need some input! :wink:

    Look, it's not important. Seeing as it has a jet engine it's bound to make a lot of noise. Upon hearing that noise, which we shall not define here so as not to provoke a reaction from the ever watchful Mr. Pedantic, the Allied forces will surrender.

    Does that make you happy? :D

    Mr Pedantic swoops!
    Why do you assume it has a jet engine?
    :lol:

    Hey, Black Jack, can we see some more pics of this from different angle?
    Even some picts of different 'fantasy' models would be nice.

    Oh, and details!!

    If you want strange ideas, take a look at the games GEAR KRIEG and LUFT KRIEG.

    The games are at the top of the page. Warhammer 40K has the futuristic stuff.

    Then click on a name at the left for that person's collection.

    Those things under the wings, if not missile launchers, are definitely jet engines.

    Don't be retarded, Roel; the Allies did loose the war. That whole invasion of Berlin by the Soviets? Never happened. It was a staged act to distract the world from a secret meeting by the Allied leaders who secretly surrendered to the Germans secretly in secret.
