Something so small but entertains those of a fine wargaming mind

Now this is a little stunner or eye turner of a model in 15mm:

Something originally French but turned against its previous owners/side b y the Germans, apparently over 700 of the French UE carriers were modified and put into some form of use by the Germans. Try hunting a KV-1 with your killer 37mm weapon in that! 

Sadly not part part of my collection, but rather that of a friends, which this and may other classy models can be seen at at the forthcoming event:

Tank Museum, Bovington [3rd-4th July] – The Defence of Fortress s’Hertogenbosch, October 1944.

A WW2 Battlefront demonstration game :)
Well worth a visit if you are their as they are a friendly, chatty bunch of souls who always put well researched, interesting scenarios together.

Nice, I certainly didn't recognise it at first.

Splendid. It's all very well calling it a tank hunter, but what the hell happens if you find one?

Rather them than me!

You fire a flare then jump off it and run while the artillery comes in :P

Obviously the deluxe version would come with a loud speaker to amplify the engine noise to sound like a Tiger!
