What's your favorite fake tank, paper panzer or design nightmare?

The APS goes in the shopping cart that the ball tank tows.

Too high-tech to be sustainable: mounted on Space Hoppers would give better mobility in muddy conditions…

That is an option but probably not one I will choose.

As the ear worm went deeper, this is kinda my thoughts on using the kugel since it was real.

Excellent point & choices :clap:

Fictional qualifies as “fake”, IMHO as OP.

@Tank_1812 Ryan, that’s a cool idea & sketch, would definitely like to see you build “nun” aka Penguin :penguin:

Maybe one or two years back, I vaguely recall seeing a diorama with two or three of those ball tanks in these forums. At the time, the models and Kublinka specimen were new to me and I made some sketches. Unfortunately, I was not keeping a journal at the time so those sketches went into the shredder. My idea was to extend the ball into a pill shape, change the round tracks into a hexagon with three long sides and three short sides, and allow the whole track unit to flip when crossing very rough terrain, a la the Landmaster from Damnation Alley. It was a silly design but greatly decreased the ground pressure of the vehicle. Some time later, I learned that the Tsar Tank used a very similar layout for engines and crew spaces.

I too would love to see this one in 1:35 injected - or even resin - I mean, what the hell?

Tamiya did one way back when in 1:50 I; here’s the box art:

Conceivably, this would have fitted in with a 1:48 collection OK,but probably need a fair bit of work, kits being quite primitive then.

And for good measure another image off the www:
