SMK


The SMK is an unusual design. It was a hold out design from the land-ship tank philosophy that was popular during the inter-war period of the 20s and 30s. It was armed with a 76.2mm L-11 in the main turret and a 45mm M1932 in the forward turret. It had a crew of seven. A single prototype was built and tested in combat against Finland during the "Winter War" (November 1939 - March 1940). During its combat debut, it was disabled by a mine on December 9th 1939. The SMK was abandoned by the crew and sat there for several months before being recovered by the Soviets. It was not rebuilt and later cut up for scrap in the 1950s.

Schwerer Raketenwerfer 85 Sphinx

The Sphinx is a Shutoral self propelled rocket artillery hover vehicle. It mounts sixteen 19cm rockets. This is my build of the Rainbow Egg resin kit. The casting are very nicely done. There is a reltavly low parts count for a model this large. The two pontoons are hollow cast as one piece. The center section and turret are two pieces each with some additional details added.
