Wotan = Ratte?

Wotan = Ratte?

Postby Mr.Marx » Thu Dec 03, 2009 8:59 pm

Im thinking of turning a LI Wotan into a 1:300 scale ww2 Ratte landship.
Does anyone have any pics of the hull on its own?
Any ideas on what to use as the main turret?

Sorry for the non-Brigade reference, but Old Crow produces some nice ~18mm diameter sci-fi double gun turrets in metal. They look a bit on the high-tech side, but you could add rivets with plasticard and pinheads (sounds like a good name for a miniatures modeling site, no?), or divot them with a pin vise.

Other sources might be WWII battleship model turrets, maybe in the 1:700 range, scale-wise.
