More 15mm Scratch Built AFV's & IFV's

Hello again all,
To continue with my previous post here are more Scratch Built AFV's & IFV's.
2 of my favourite models are GZG 15mm Phalanx & Paladin. Even if they have been designed years ago they are still very scifi looking & never seem to get old.
My main concerns with them are that they are made of heavy metal which can be disastrous if model slips from the hand & they are low as vehicles go ( though they would look very plausible as 10mm or AI controlled ones ).
So I decided to do my versions of them.
As usual the hulls are very straight forward, made out of card of card , see the first pic for the tanks plan. The chassis are made of wood & card with marker cap based wheels.The axles are made from metal pop rivet leftovers . Turrets are made from PVC ( e.g. billboard type material & cotton bud barrels for the  twin missile launchers ).
They're not perfect but came out great for gaming
I undercoated 3 in black & light sprayed with grey primer.

Enjoy

  1. Hi Zruny,

    I'm not sure if i was following your blog when you posted this, but if I was I apologise for being lazy to comment on this post when you made it.

    They look ace man! I really like those wheels a lot. You said they are from marker caps? I've never seen caps like that before. Are they something special that you only get in Malta?

    I had no idea that you built the basic shape from folding card. I'm even more impressed mate! I've ran out of words to tell you how good they turned out :)

    Keep on keepin on!

  2. Thanks Mr.P,
    Glad you like them.
    No worries my friend ....
    To tell you the truth I have forgotten what make the marker was but yes simple marker caps cut short.

    God knows how much stuff I bought or kept along the years just because they looked nice .. haha 🤔

    Over & out my friend.
