In 1946 the DOD realing from the near defeat in ww2 realised our costal defence was lacking and that we needed far more destroyers but lacked the funds to produce them after the collosal costs of the war it was decided we needed light weight fast vessels with the fire power of a destroyer, it was decided that only one designer could design such a vessel, after the success of his flying tank the handsome and clever designer kpnuts was the only one capable of building the new vessel. No one knew where he had gone and a massive manhunt began to find him.
A little older and more grey haired, but distinguishly handsome, he was found on a remote island off the Galapagos, he was set to work immediately, after exhaustive research it was decided the crusader 3 tank would be the basis of this new vessel.
The first 3 prototypes sank without a trace but KN1 became the most successful sea tank ever made. Watch this space for the story of what could arguably be called the most successful sea going vessel of modern times
Ken's the name modeling's the game.

That looks very good and even more so under a paint layer as it ties all the different materials together.
Happy Modelling

Hi all well as I said on my Spad build this yr I'm going to try and finish some of my shelved builds.

This one wasn't stopped for problems with the build. I started this on another forum that is ruled with an iron fist I got fed up with continuing complaints and warnings from the admin (everything I posted on there was exactly the same as here and other forums I frequent, with no complaints on here or any of the others) the final straw was complaining about the back story on this build (I decided I don't want to be on a forum where you can't even use humour in a topic) I've not posted there since and of course it put me off the build, well I've decided to start it again.
Ive removed the side shields as I'm intending to add inflatable type
Floats.

Hi all well I've added the wheel and a sort of nautical colour scheme, once the tracks are on I will add some outrigger pontoon supports, going thought my spares box I can't find any props of an appropriate size then I thought about adding paddles to the wheels (which I figure would allow it amazing manouverability and allow it to turn in its own radius) what do you think is that a feasible idea.
