:bowty: What does all that in the subject mean? I'll get to that in a second. This is a scratch built project I did last weekend. I was scrounging around a website ( http://beutepanzer.ru/index.htm ) and found this picture.

I got to thinking, I have all the parts to make one of these and a project was born. This is a 7.5cm French gun rechambered to fire the German Pak 40 AT ammo. It was designated as the Pak 97/98 (F). The vehicle chassis is a captured Russian T-26 designated as the Panzer 740 (R). The gun, shield and figures are leftovers from the PSCo. RSO kit and the T-26 is a Minairon kit. The only work required was to remove the top deck from the tank and make a pedestal mount for the gun. It was a fun little odd vehicle build.

Well done!

Love the mods..................

Just checked the Zvezda T-26 and it looks do-able with that one as well.
