    Wonderful work! Nobody would think that's paper looking only to the last photos!
    Many compliments. A detail level above the excellence! :Bravo:

    Also known as the BREN Gun Carriage, this little tank was no toy and was quite an impressive vehicle. It was really fast. I built the Tamiya version of this, and it didn't look this good. The real ones used a Ford V-8, and could get up to 30 m.p.h.!! By 1960, 116,000 of these were built, this is the most produced armored vehicle in history! They had an ingenious steering mechanism by which the front wheels could deflect the tracks and this warping made the tank turn nice and smooth, for sharp turns, brakes on each side could be individually operated. I love these things. I was going to design one, I wanted one so bad, but after seeing this one, I decided I would try and get that. Being in the U.S., no freaking way. Truth be told, I'd build a scan of this if I found one.. I hate that they don't sell these here and I can't afford to pay crazy shipping for a magazine that could come in mangled. You are very fortunate, and you have built the finest model I have ever seen of this in any medium. It is perfect!!! :)

    Lovely, I always wanted to build this carrier and was not aware that there was a paper model of this. I was planning on designing my own and have started to gather the parts and bits needed and this thread helps out considerably. Thanks for sharing.

    Silveroxde, if you find a supplier at, a reasonable price, give me a call, and we'll order two, save on shipping!! There was one on EBAY but the listing was over two years old, and it was around $30 dollars, plus S & H, far too expensive, I'd design a model for that price (for myself). It's been accurate 3 way drawings I have had trouble finding. They also came configured in quite a few way, though most were like the one modeled here by JaCkyl. :)

    Presently I have been designing a few models and then I have to finish my Warhammer boat. I plan on making the basic schematics for it and uploading the plans. I wish to build it along the same criteria I built my Dingo Scout car a while back, about 1/35 scale.
