"Wilhelm NDAK Tank Commander" www.dustgame.com/products_d.php 

Pretty cool model but does anyone want to take a guess of what he is riding in?

 It looks an awful lot like a Panzer 3/4 turret with a laser, just small. The scale with the figure and the central driver view port makes me think it's a light scout tank of some kind.

Could this be an "accidental" leak of some tracked Axis walker hunter?

I love the fact that Dust Studios is finally bringing out tanks.

 After looking a little more I believe it is a Sdkfz 234/2 Puma.

 

Due to the way that the armor is slanting on the sides and the size, I think this might be it.

Don't believe so…. In fact, it sems to be a 1/48 model of a light geman tank, with a customed kit from Dust models.

Just saw the blurb for the new models. The three-man heavy weapons teams for the Germans are darn near what I wished for some months ago: Crew-served weapons! And I have to get the IS; I love tanks!!

Its a "Dustified" Autobolinda 41. Most likely its the Italeri kit.

Good eye.

I should have gone straight for the Italeri listings for reference.

The upcoming SSU tanks and this discussion motivated me to search the Squadron Shop's site for 1/48 scale tank kits. Found a mess of Sherman variants and Russian models for $13 apiece! Chinese-made kits, which means lesser detail (i.e., not Tamiya, which is the bulk of the kits), but perfect for Dust modding. I eagerly await the new IS model so that I've got an idea of how the game officially treats tanks, so that I can make home rules to account for actual wartime models…after all, the comic shows a 251 halftrack and an M5 Stuart (meaning the two-part Dust comic miniseries by Parente); normal tanks are still being used (advantages include higher speeds than walkers, as well as greater shell capacity - which means HE for Germans!).

Not to mention not everything can be VK powered… that stuff is valuable….lol… If they just had all this VK ore around to overhaul evrything with then they wouldn't need to be beating the crap out of each other in Antartica and Zverograd, lol. If VK was that plentiful, evryone would just be flying around in VK powered underwear giving each other high fives and fist pumps!
