"We love the "Egg" and "Cute" series of models that has become more and more of a fad recently in modelling. These models give those who want something hassle-free to build, alternatively, they give the young and inexperienced modellers a chance to learn the skills of the trade. Thirdly they give those diorama experts a chance to create a whole tiny world. Meng's Panzer 38(t) is the subject of our build and pimping out guide today in the news…"

Go play World War Toon sometime, Mobius. pretty fun beer&pretzels&trash-talking.

I'm just bummed that they don't include any of the infantry characters with the tanks.

I bought some of those tanks and eggplants. Not sure what to do with em yet…

Potential for an Orc tank I think.

Not even on a dare.

Actually too bad they are so big. Might be fun to play What a Tanker with them!

Those all would make great Ork AFVs ! Too bad they don't make them in 6mm !

I'm not sure someone hasn't already tried that.

I still have some of the old Skytrex 1/300 tanks and vehicles from the 1970s. While they aren't quite as "cute", they are certainly as "cartoonish".

Not even on a dare.

As my father used to say: It doesn't TAKE all kinds. There must ARE all kinds.

@ZuluPaul and @L4: Yeah, I've seen several people online making Ork AFVs out of those. mostly the KV2 versions, if I remember correctly…

Would like to see those, but are they not OOP ?

The similarity is clear ! thumbs up

As long as one was to keep ones tongue firmly in ones cheek – I could see a number of amusing uses for these. They'd look right at home with the Grubs WW2 worm infantry line or the Warpod robots from Flytrap Factory.

Hmm…do I need another distraction project…

Glad you like it my friend!. (smile)

I just don't understand why anyone would bother when the real things are so cool…

Mobius29 Dec 2018 6:06 p.m. PST

It's like a British Mark VI light tank and a Polish TKS had an illegitimate child.

Lion in the Stars01 Jan 2019 3:20 p.m. PST

@Murvihill: It's from a computer game called World War Toon. It's very much in the spirit of Looney Tunes, Bugs Bunny et al. Including dropping pianos on someone as arty/air support.

So if your sensibilities are warped in that direction, it's pretty cool. (I really wish that they were making the infantry models)

These toon tanks are not without their uses…

These are great models for several reasons – sturdy, quick and easy to assemble, reasonably priced…

I just wish they weren't so "superdeformed". If they made them just a little bit longer, they would work fine.
