Belgian T15 at 1/72 scale
« on: December 18, 2010, 10:10:22 PM »
Once again, a Belgian AFV...

The T15 was a teeny tank, armed with a machinegun that served during WWII and the 18 days campaign of the Belgian army.

Retrotracks made a little 1/72 kit of that beautiful tankette.

I ameliorated some elements, and wished to represent that tank during manoeuvres in 1939. To add a little bit of fun, I've thinked about an animal blocking the tank - But which animal? A cow? a horse? Some ducks walking on the road?
A friend of mine suggested... a goose, and better a furious one! Great idea, and I found a goose in a German shop for HO railway.

Presenting my diorama on some forums, an English suggested me to name it: "Anti-Tank Goose", or ATG (abbreviation for Anti-Tank Gun)



I won with my goose (it seems that people don't see the tank but the goose only!!!) I won IPMS-Belgium Challenge in 2007.

Thank you!

So successful with that diorama that a friend made a caricature that was published in KIT (IPMS-Belgium magazine) where you can see animal defenders on the T15, with a panel "Free the goose"...

Thank you Sall!
Always try to be original when making a dio... I prefer humour to scenes with dead people.
