Anyone know where I can find 1/35 scale chainmail? I went looking for something similar --- Mark Yungblut suggested mesh purses, which routinely turn up on eBay. I found something that worked for a 1/16-ish figure. Not sure you can get something that is fine enough for 1/35 (or even 54mm) figures ....

How about something along the lines of teh M60A2, the infamous 'starship'? Perhaps lower and longer?

Update: primer is on and textured - going for a cast hull look, even though I can't really justify it (I'd think in the interest of lightness the hull would be ceramic/composite and 'grown vice cast .... maybe it is, and has a textured anti-something coating, like non-skid) (And maybe I'm over think...

One of the things I've been thinking about is UAVs. Small, relatively cheap, unobtrusive, and if you break one or it gets shot down, no human crew were hurt. If I had the tech to make a hover-/counter-grav/anti-grav tank, I'd man it with a smart computer or a remote pilot. Arming the thing .... now ...

OneZero's NOE UAV

Oh, I just had a Very Bad Idea..... I've been hoping for you to expand on this. Share! My thoughts have led me down the path of an AI or remotely piloted vehicle that operates between 0 and (let's say) 20 feet above the ground - a nap-of-the-earth UAV, if you like. I'm more interested in a tank-kil...

What he said.

I will say that it's more a tank hunter than a MBT, and that it's a MaK-inspired. My design will use the C/BT countergrav and palletized weapons.

Think, for example, of a hovering vehicle that is heavily armored (physical or energetic), carries heavy weapons, can zoom at 200 mph (or more) or crawl at walking speed, can turn on a dime and move in any direction, can reach altitudes of 100 or 1000 feet (or whatever) or a foot off the ground, is...

I was thinking that simply from the mobility aspect, a flying tank might be militarily very useful, even if it did have to sit down to fire. I don't believe that we're ever going to see a situation like that at Kursk again, or even the tank battles of North Africa. I think they're going to be more ...

Recasting – the practice of taking someone else’s kit, molding it and casting it and then selling it as your own – is the scourge of this hobby. It’s driven many garage kitters out of production over the years. We do not support recasting . Nor do we support the practice of taking money for products...
