It is a very cool looking tank . Might make a great cold war era what if build or maybe a sci fi panzer 46 , ok that might be pushing it . Was there any confirmation as to which museum vehicle or vehicles this kit was based on ? Seems to have various bits from different tanks , of course being a proto- type / pre production tank maybe parts were swapped from vehicle to vehicle during testing . Will be picking this kit up ( and adding it to the pile )
