Mock Up

In the 1930's there was a magazine article that proposed an electro gun tank.  It was to be propelled by Archimedes screws.

This is my 1/72nd scale paper mock up of the tank.

In WWI there was a mock up of a tank for the US Army to use in WWI.  One source says the Army purchased 50 of them.  Here is my paper mock up.

When trying to scratch build a model, I often make use of paper mock ups to determine size and shape and figure out the difficult parts.
