Federal Tank Transporter project 2021

I received for a low price a beautiful, well-modeled Mirror Diamond T972 … but boring!
how do i convert it?
I try several conversions without finding anything really interesting.
in the end I reopen a mental drawer with a strange tank transporter used by the British.
Federat 604 and Trailmobile trailer
as usual I’m a victim of my unbridled optimism …
