Rumours are that there's a Full Sized Baneblade built by the US army's hobby regiment in Alabama:

Is that the picture of it? If so why have they built a full size action man to command it?

apparently they said they had done this because they couldn't afford to pay someone just to stand in the tank all day long.

You have to be a real dummy to stand around in a tank all day without pay.

Its an impressive effort. I'd like to see it in a proper 'photoshoot' without all the scale destroying background items.

Thank you for the Red Herring Nige!

Took a little while to find it, but that's a picture of a 1/6 scale RC baneblade tank manufactured in Russia!

Here's the link if you want one.

Couple of other pictures on that site, and a nice video!

Enjoy all!!

Forge World bring out their 1/6 scale Baneblade, complete with Action Man commander in the hatch, almost every Games Day. Got video of it kicking around from a few years ago. In fact I think Nige was with me at the time I took it.

Nice spot. Must be a camera trick.

Wow, over 3 years! I thought I had a mod on here that locked topics after a year of no replies, guess it's not working ...
