I remember seeing a picture of one with a pak40 artillery piece instead of a turret.

Some neat ideas with the stuart!  Hey maybe I could build one of those and
paint it up as a "captured" version! Anyone know of any stuart tank that
captured by the axis?

I am pleased to announce that Lief Goodson's Stuart Light Tank has been
officially designated as Tank #T009 and it appears to be ready for
battle. With the 12 month battling season in Florida, Lief will almost
certainly have logged dozens of hours of stick-time by the time most of
us finish digging out from the winter that is shaping up to be a real
nasty one. Lief has provided some good photos and lots of good building
information, which can be viewed at:


Everyone should take a close look at the 40cal gun assembly that Lief
has developed, which looks like it will be a great solution for all AFVs
that can't install a 68cal marker. The paintball splats aren't as
impressive and the range might not be as far, but it certainly makes
installations easier and will pr obably require less maintenance.

On the 68cal front, Bryan Boucher has added some more photos to his
Tiger-1 #T008 page at:


which shows his solution for mounting a 68cal marker. Clearly, Bryan's
building material of choice is aluminum and he's an accomplished metal

Bryan's is the 4th Tiger to be built (my Tiger was a trend-setter!!)
which is apparently making Steve Tyng a little worried because he has
recently increased his rhetoric. We're certain. however, that such talk
will subside quickly once his T-34 "Tiger Killer" is surrounded by 4
Tigers ... oh so many targets, but such little time to live ... tracks
don't fail me now ...
