Tank Conversions

The WWII German Army used specially modified halftracks to monitor the launch of V-2 missiles.

There is no reason that specially modified Tiger II tanks could not have been used for monitoring even more advanced missiles.

These "roof parts" from Reviersco make good alternate turrets for the Roco Tiger II.

Radar monitoring and direction, telemetry, fire control are all potential uses for these roof parts. Old tank models like this are cheap and easy to get both new and used. I have a bunch of them in my collection and a few of them will end up with these new turrets. Thanks to my friend at Reviresco for providing these bits free of charge.
