I might be in. Most of what I have is partially built...too far along to even ask.

But I have some Tamiya German Type 41 Heavy Rocket Launcher bits that need using. Maybe add them to a tank or something.

I have to ask but are what-ifs and/or sci-fi subjects allowed?

Mount the rockets and their launch cradles on the rear end of a truck bed so that the rocket flames are aimed at the ground behind the truck. Maybe a captured GAZ-AA, GAZ-AAA or RSO

Maybe this could serve as inspiration:

Maybe turned 90 degrees to get the rocket flames over the side or add a deflector plate to protect the openings in the engine deck ...

I'm in. I have the old Dragon MLRS and some etch at the bottom of the stash that needs to be built before the styrene crumbles....

or the AFV Club Sturmtiger with Voyager set

or the Lion Roar Nebelwerfer... I have not had the courage to actually build that...

Not that I have either kit in the stash, but if the Katyusha is acceptable I assume Tulip's, which were used as Ground to Ground rocket artillery as well, would be too?
