48th scale "Joshua" walking tank in Israeli service

Built 31st May to 29th August 2020

 

When I finished the Bakunin walking tanks in 2017 I had the components to two 1/48th scale Hobbyboss T34/76 tanks spare. So I decided to use them up and chose the 1/20th scale Wave Pak Krote kit as a basis for the kitbash. The vision was for an open top self-propelled gun using the crew from the German anti-aircraft gun that was also left over from the Bakunin project. The project came a long way from there. I had always planned a desert setting but swapped it from being a German walking tank to an Israeli one late in plans.

 

The diorama was built up the same time as the one for the Academy Huckebein and is the same size. I have shoe-horned on the old Dioramics Midle-Eastern Market Building alongside the more familiar Airfix "Afghan Single Storey Dwelling". The Joshua is barely recognisable from its Krote origins as it has a new body and heavily modified turret & legs. I quite enjoyed how this turned out in the end. It looks mean and purposeful.

 

Photos of the original kits are here.
