K45 Kitbash by Tetchist K45 Kitbash by Tetchist
kitbash for my comic book.

this is a 1:35 scale plastic model using parts from Tamiya, Revell, and Trumpeter models. it depicts a vehicle from my fictional comic storyverse.

...

"The K45-A3 is the Republic's heavy tank destroyer, designed to annihilate Imperial forces at ranges exceeding all but the most powerful of Imperial armaments. Mounting a super-velocity 120mm gun mated to a massive autoloader mechanism, it can expend all three rounds from its ready-magazine in under six seconds. Combined with a heavily armored binocular gun sight, the K45 fires its rounds at 5,500 FPS, at an accurate range of up to three miles.

Its driver-controlled defensive 8mm machinegun is almost an afterthought by comparison.

Utilizing a unique crew control mechanism, the tank is operated entirely from within the hull, leaving the turret to be occupied by the gun, autoloader, and small crew ingress/egress tunnel. Even the driver sits well behind the front of the tank, protected by layers of heavy armor.

The K45's resilience is legendary, rivaling that of the Imperial IL29 - typical Imperial tactical calculations for destroying a K45 result in 12 medium tanks to one K45 - a number that has often been woefully insufficient."

Only other things I think I can point out is a Panzer Cupola and the gun I think might be off an Object of some sorts.
