The LeadWind by Durnstaros The LeadWind by Durnstaros
Finished painting my version of a Hydra today, a Ylmaharian 'Landstorm' AA tank called "The LeadWind" by it's crew.
Tried drybrushing the whole vehicle instead of trying to highlight manually, and I do think that worked even if I didn't stick a lot of eye-catching details on it.

The base is a widened 1:48 scale King Tiger with a fully custom turret and radar dish.

And I am aware that it resembles a Russian/Soviet Shilka

Will you add surface-to-air missiles, as the Israelis did to the M163 air defense vehicle, to increase the range at which it can engage enemy aircraft?

Probably, if they had the tech. A bunch of hunter-killer sized missiles would be perfect.

I was thinking of a Bofors Forty when I made the flash hiders, so probably close to that.

57mm? Probably too big for that chassi, 40 will be cramped enough.

Yeeep...very nice model,I like the shilka design so much.
And the king tiger base looks better than the imperial guard standard base. Great work...

Thank you. :) I like it a lot as well, but I'll have to make a new version now that I have switched to homemade chassis.

Indeed I do, the tracks and basic chassis are borrowed but I build everything myself. My latest tank tries to do away with borrowed parts altogether.

Thank you! Yes it does look a bit too sleek and modern for some parts of my army, but who cares. :)
Hopefully I can continue making balanced designs
