I think the Neubaufahrzeug makes an excellent Leman Russ.
Spoiler:


This is 1/35, similar height and width (not including sponsons), (although about 50% longer).
Not cheaper though as a 1/35 Neubaufahrzeug alone is about the same price as a Leman Russ from GW.
The two turrets match the two sponsons, and make more logical sense imo.

Nice work, nice looking vehicle and crew, it seems to scale pretty well, especially for a heavy battle tank.

Yeah they're great models. I bought 3 sets, one was limited edition "display only" and another two were regular, although Paulo seems to have a lot of issues with stock.

I just use them as set dressing though

Okay, so finally some nice weather for air brushing, I got kangaroo no 3 out, primed it and put the first coat on then pulled out vehicle number 2 to use as reference for masking after it dried, and then I realised my mistake Didn't put smoke launchers, spotlight or infantry telephone on. So that has been remedied now, vehicle is up to standard. Gotta prime and paint those details though.

The missile launcher looks pretty awesome. Would you mind taking a photo from a different angle?
And as usual: great work on those details. The Kangaroo certainly is a very cool vehicle.

Thanks mate, I really like the look of it too, I think I'll use that same light slate green colour and then the same dark green as on the other vehicle in the first picture. Although with a modified pattern.
Spoiler:


Some more paint on it! The commander is waving a sword, because you know, nothing says cav...

Finished the last Kangaroo. This is a cavalry reconnasance vehicle that is part of a recon troop in a tank regiment. It is similar in role to a modern CRV such as a cavalry bradleys, this particular vehicle has a large arm mounting either a box of 6 anti tank missiles or a Folding Fin Aerial rocket pod. The commander is brandishing a sabre, becasue you should expect such eccentricities in any unit with strong cavalry traditions, (it is actually inspired by one of the NCOs in the mortar pits in the Danish war documentary Armadilo, although he was also wearing no shirt and a shako). Vehicle is named 'Draco'. The vehicle has 4 dismounts that can carry out recon on foot or should the need arise, fight from inside the vehicle.

I love the eyes on the upper hull. Also very nice camo scheme and weathering. The rocket pod looks very intimidating.

I have started working on a 3D printed minethrower, bridgelayer and another Tauros proxy, but it will take a while until I have some pics worth sharing

Cheers, the eyes are from the greenstuff world tactical numbers etc decal sheet I would recommend it.
I am looking forwards to seeing your work on the 3d models.
