As WW1 tanks go that one is really quite beautiful - almost a sci-fi to the extent that I wonder if it inspired the tranport vehicle in Aliens.  Am looking forward to following this build!

That's pretty cool, and I can't wait to see the end product.  But it sure looks strange in the front and back views.  Those sponsons stick out so far that if too many crew members were on one side, it looks like the tank would tip over!

Hi Mancha

I don't think it would have tipped over as it was supposed to weigh 150 tons  Shocked Shocked Shocked probably sank into the mud though  Laugh Laugh Laugh

Here's another plan with the crew marked on

Landpanzerschiffe for the win!  Smiley

Looking forward to seeing that come through. I had done some cardboard templates for a K-Wagen some years ago, but before I could actually start work, I a) somehow got out of WW1 gaming and b) realized how many rivets I would have to cut and glue for that beastie...

I've harboured an idle fantasy of owning one of these for a while. You can get kits in 1/72 and 1/35 (see below), but as far as I know, nobody makes one that would go with 28mm figures. So I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out. Good luck!

Love the project, Keith.

This is one of the vehicles I've -dreamed- about having available with my company, but I'm terrified of the thought of the cost of all that resin... this would be one expensive model, I suspect! Good to see somebody scratchbuilding it.
