I have this little guy printed and am working on the rivets. Then I need to figure out how to mold the treads. Hopefully it will be out in the next couple months.

I like that little guy!

I see a lot of potential for modification there!

Wow I did not expect that! What a strange tank, wondering what the Coftyran design team was thinking!

I like it though (I think)!

Advantages -

1) Keeps you driving forward
2) Low profile
3) No turret to get jammed

True although to date we have yet to see a turreted tank, after all the crusader tanks turn the entire body. I guess the best aspect of the design is the angled front meaning increased protection. I do like the little tower in the top as well.

I love it!

It looks like it's armed with a heavy shotgun?

I always like the no turret/Stug design.

Put an armored shield on front of the top and let troops ride in on top of it!

Or even have a infantry trailer - like the trailer below, but with armoured sides and loopholes for the rifles.

Just thought you might like to know this has made it's way to TableTop Gaming News so hopefully it should encourage some orders and interest!

I think they were thinking, "Sorry, winning!"

Lovely design! Cool Cool Cool

There's potential for VSF in it as well. All it needs is a wind-up key (from a Crusader's point of view... Razz Wink ). Design-wise, it reminds me on this little one:

Very funny was 0:38 - 0:41. With the shape of the Chyweethl, it could drive away upside-down... Laughing Laughing Laughing

Yeah, a 15mm company would be soo cool!
