In 1946 the DOD realing from the near defeat in ww2 realised our costal defence was lacking and that we needed far more destroyers but lacked the funds to produce them after the collosal costs of the war it was decided we needed light weight fast vessels with the fire power of a destroyer, it was decided that only one designer could design such a vessel, after the success of his flying tank the handsome and clever designer kpnuts was the only one capable of building the new vessel. No one knew where he had gone and a massive manhunt began to find him.
A little older and more grey haired, but distinguishly handsome, he was found on a remote island off the Galapagos, he was set to work immediately, after exhaustive research it was decided the crusader 3 tank would be the basis of this new vessel.
The first 3 prototypes sank without a trace but KN1 became the most successful sea tank ever made. Watch this space for the story of what could arguably be called the most successful sea going vessel of modern times

Hi all well the fun begins, I'm not worried about realism or true to life just having some fun, trying different modeling methods and materials.

Funny enough, I was at the imperial war museum the other week and there was a model of I guess a prototype Sherman with a boat hull I believe they called it duplex drive. pretty cool concept.

Hi all well I've added the wheel and a sort of nautical colour scheme, once the tracks are on I will add some outrigger pontoon supports, going thought my spares box I can't find any props of an appropriate size then I thought about adding paddles to the wheels (which I figure would allow it amazing manouverability and allow it to turn in its own radius) what do you think is that a feasible idea.

Totally bonkers, and I love it!  Hey, if I can build a flying shark, you can build a swimming tank!

That is the coolest looking hydro tank. Especially the front end. I think the paddles on the wheels is gokbgcro be perfect. Propeller? Hmmmm. Where were you going to use that?
