[Minairons] Weird War 2 Eggwalker

Despite it's hard to imagine in our daily grind what anyone would want a 4-legged egg-shaped AFV for, experience has repeatedly shown us that, sometimes, reality does far exceed the wildest designers' dreams. So here it comes the 1:72nd scale version of the 'presumably' ubiquitous Eggwalker AFV, 'why not' widely used as reconnaisance and infantry support vehicle in 'who knows what' war.

Image

Model itself is quite simple, for it just consists of 6 parts - main hull, four legs and upper hatch. It is on sale at our website as a resin DLP 3d-printed model kit, thanks to teaming with Patreon's creator Panzer Printer.

A 1:100th scale version, hopefully coming soon too.

Maravilloso!
Because it's Minairons this is for sure a Spanish Civil War vehicle!
A diabolical machine supplied by those Communists.. a T-0 "Myach" (Sphere)!
Now it's necessary its counterpart: the Panzer Aufklarungslaufer "Megalith"!

Who knows? Perhaps the lonely Kugelpanzer they found in Manchuria was the German response to the Red Egg... Maybe it had already been secretly delivered in Spain before travelling to the Far East!

I've always liked alternate 'weird' world war 2 material, especially with horror elements like werewolves and zombies, the egg looks like it fits into that kind of aesthetic.

Can't stop wondering! History is always a step beyond any "alternate/weird" scenario!
