Really nice model. Have you ever done any dioramas?

Being that is was an early Cold War, post WWII AFV design it makes sense that they would have sought a cheap means to fielding a lot of armor in light of the USSR mass armor threat crossing the East German line.

The casemate tank destroyer design would have had some sort of role considering that there were still many older tank destroyers and assault guns in the Russian's lower tier armored forces. I think by this time the assault gun/tank destroyer distinction was pretty much gone with the assault guns being phased out with the advancements in long range, accurate artillery fire. Would have been interesting to see how this tank destroyer would have performed against the MBTs of that era in modern mobile warfare.

Thanks. I use to make dioramas,but they're all gone now,including this tank, all i have left are a handful of photos. I wonder if this machine is available in "The World of Tanks", a videogame i haven't played, would be interesting to see how it performs there. Cheers.

You know they haven't brought in the Swedish designs yet but it would be a fun one to play.

Oh man if you haven't played you should try it out. It's fun =^^=

great looking model, it's kinda interesting to see a tank of this type. Not since World War II, back then they were a lot of them, especially on the German side. They were call "Assault Tanks" which were tanks that had fix cannons instead of turrets.

Thanks. The WWII German "Sturmgeschutz" is one of my favourites.

I will say exactly the same thing that I said to a stryker model of somebody else :

Really nice weathering but the tracks are not good. Not weathered and the plastic tracks of this kind of model taks very bad shapes. You should try [link] or heat it a little to make themm in the shape you need.

Ah, the infamous modern day Swedish tank with a common tank destroyer layout. The treads look an awful lot like those on the German Leopard I/IIs. Otherwise I have to say that it is a well done model.

There's been some controversy over whether the configuration is actually practical. Hence there has been several cases of doubt over its effectiveness. But in all fairness, the tank has not been proven to be a bad tank in any way and the term infamous is used more because of an author's grey opinion from an encyclopedia of modern day tanks that I read about 4-5 years ago.

It's hard to say how effective this weapon would perform in tank to tank combat, i've seen pictures of it which would suggest that it's more suited to an artillery role.
