Hey guys,
Ready to design a new tank kit, thinking something british. Maybe Cromwell. What do you guys suggest?

New kit from the ground up ? Or add on pieces to an existing kit for more detail or variant?

New tank all together I'd like to see a Patton tank. M48 or M60 somthing from the cold war, Korean or Vietnam era American timeframe.

For add on kits I have 3d printed E75 in mind to add to a King Tiger I have in need of restoration. Just have yet to figure out how.

For commercial success, I would recommend a tank that can be derived in multiple versions, and i agree with LordPanzer, an M60 is a top choice.

If i ever see a Cromwell available, i will buy only one. But if an M60 available, depending on price, there would probably be many builds, such as a Vietnam M60A1, Cold war M60A3, Marine corps M60A1 RISE with ERA, Israeli with Blazer, Magach 7, M60A2 starship, AVLB

It will be a fresh model from the ground up.

My vote goes to armored cars and support vehicles like a Jeep.

We are pretty well served of tanks.

Cromwell (althou it is in Hooben's plans). Crusader? Matilda? Valentine? RTR Churchill? Bishop? Archer? Armoured and scout cars?

Would love a Comet, Cromwell or the massive Conqueror but I would say the Centurion would be the most sensible ?

As the Centurion and the Conqureror shared the same Horstman Suspension it makes sense to make both :haha:
But I agree a German Half Track would be most pleasing :thumbup:

A Centurion brings back happy memories from my Dinky days. And maybe the tank transporter as a set?? I'll get my hat..... :'(
