Rob recently opened up a brand new web store selling all sorts of wonderful bitz and pieces, many involving the Pith Helmet motif. If you haven't seen the store, check it out HERE!. I purchased some lovely metal dress uniform bodies from this site, a review of which can be found HERE!.
Anyway, Rob emailed me asking if I would like to work with him, creating a line of vehicles for his store. I could not restrain my excitement and immediately jumped at the chance. So we settled on starting a project within my comfort zone, some completely original tankettes.
The track sections, the outer hull and the main driver compartment, all in the early stages of design.
Many of you may have seen my own tankettes, produced a few years ago now, which incorporated many GW parts. But this would be a complete revamp of the original design. Every part would have to be hand made from scratch, from tank track to weapon mount.
My early design, from a few years ago.
So far its been quite a challenge and as you can see, progress is slow, but I am very excited to see the finished vehicle go into production.
