Another Tracked Rapier

Another Tracked Rapier

Postby RichardC » 03 Apr 2012

Not particularly original - but I just got hold of a "used" Cromwell Tracked Rapier and was keen to repaint it for my 1980's BAOR force. So this is my "FlaK" entry:

Damn you Mr Brown (cromwell models) for making such lovely kit yet being obtuse about selling it.

Nice model! It's kinda hard to believe this didn't start as some sort of science-fiction conceptual drawing :grin: .
