Here's a beast of a tank that was actually produced, the Russian IS-7. There was a 
production run of 4!


This will be my next project after T5 on two conditions.  There are future rules 
modifications that incorporate some sort of armor thickness/gun caliber damage 
ratio.  And of course, my wife will have had to leave me by then because she is 
barely tolerating the one I'm building now!  :-)

Steve, T5

    I see what you mean, I wouldn't want my model cut in half by one of
those lazers or something!  I was just wondering if it has been specified in
the rules yet.

    Oh yes... you may remember Chrysler's Viper as a concept in the late
80's the Prowler in the 90's and the PT cruiser most recently.
Unfortunately the monster T-Rex truck and the redesigned Power Wagon, was
not produced, but the HEMI is back!!!  Chev. now produces that sporty little
truck with the soft top that was shown in blue or purple at the shows, and
Ford the new Thunderbird.  One of the imports is now marketing a vehicle
(Just released comercials saying it's available in 2003) almost identical to
a concept that was shown 2 years ago.  Dreams seem to be becomming more and
more of a reality these days!
