T29E2 Super Heavy Tank – Project 46′ 1/72nd kit from Cromwell Models

Another from our Project 46′ collection, this time a bit of allied heavy firepower, a T29E3 from Cromwell Models. Concieved in 1944 the T29 heavy tank was proposed to provide overwatch fire to the T26 mediums and as a direct counter the German and Soviet super heavy project tanks. The T29E3 variant fitted the 105mm T5E1 main gun and used the massive 274cm T31E1 rangefinder.

I finished this a while back but as usual is it ever finished? Well, no lol. I still have to add crew and some small details such as brush guards for the periscopes and lights. It’s intended to be part of a rapid deployment Marine Task Force and will have modified LVTs attached as APCs. Ok, I admit I’m not sure exactly how rapidly a 70t heavy battle tank could be deployed but I’m sure if the situation was desperate enough ways would be found ……..
