Hi Alex, I would prefer that it is something that has been built, even if only a one-off, but with photographic reference. I will allow partially started kits, as long as not more than 50% complete.



Alright thanks.

When it comes to vehicular comic relief it's tough to beat this little gem:

[Photo used for discussion purposes only]

It looks like something from a 1960s Japanese sci-fi movie, but it's actually a restored Soviet utility vehicle. Apparently they're still used in Siberia where roads are functionally useless.

Bump!
We need 4 more modellers willing to join!

I received a partialy built Su-76M from a friend, so the gun for my Funny is in the stash.
An Academy Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf.H,that will be purchased soon, will undergo substantial surgery to serve as the base.

Thank you for the bump Angel, I have been a bit out of it the last couple days. There must be a few more oddballs/ conversions that people want to do! Ram Kangaroo anyone?

You can count one more in.

What I really want to build is a BT-7A that was rearmed with an F-32 76mm gun:

Don't know if it fits in here.

Some other options I was thinking
KV-1 57mm
R-35/T-26 turret
T-26 pak 97/38
Lebanese T-55 D-30


I'll eventually decide

You are welcome, Colin!

Had itchy fingers the other day-standing in front of the Academy Pz.IV kit at my LHS.
Knew if I buy it, I won't stand the temptation to start the Hybrid.

So I decided to postpone the deal -but to bump the thread.
It payed off-Comrade MP is on board with a bunch of interresting ideas.

Now we only need 3(three) more takers!

Seems like there are not so many 'funny' people out there. If that is the case, how about some of you mildly amusing people sign up too?

There are plenty of kits out there that fit the bill without scratch building, major modification, aftermarket extras or combining two kits. A few examples

This from Mirror Models or Hobby Boss

Bit more from the Soviet Union:
Su-6(3-K AAG on widened and lengthened T-26 chassy):

My scratchbuild:
https://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=248425&ord=&page=20

SG-122(A)- Soviet 122 mm M-30 howitzer on captured Pz.III/StuG. III chassies:

My build:
https://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=SquawkBox&file=index&req=viewtopic&topic_id=248425&ord=&page=16

Then there are also 2 kits of Su-76i by Dragon(#6838;#6856)

Plenty of opportunities

Nice Sg-122(A) Angel as well as the other builds you did in there. There was some very impressive builds in that thread, which is what prompted me to sign up for the scratch build thread you started.

Hi Svetoslav.

The 'Aunt Jemima' fits the theme same as The Churchill Bobbin layer and others. I am considering doing a Sherman Flail tank myself.

A bit of Trivia: The name 'Aunt Jemima' came from a brand of pancake mix, not from a busty matron as a lot of people thought!

Also I was thinking about SPK-12, a heavy crane on T-55 chassis.
But not decided yet.
