For your consideration - a high detail model of the AFE's main battle tank the Panzer X.

This version is designed for production as a 1/12 scale model.

Designing at this larger scale allows additional details to be seen that make up part of the Panzer X's background. It's rapid fire ability is now clearly noticeable in the first close up by revealing it is actually a twin barrel that resides inside the main gun. This allows two shells can be fired in rapid succession.

The second close up shows the automated machine gun in addition to the Smoke Launchers, Top hatch Targeting optics and the Electronic Warfare node and Commander's view port which is offset to the main hatch allowing the commander to see where the turret is facing even with the main gun elevated.

The third close up reveals the method for loading ammunition into the Tank through the hatch on the lower middle of the turret as well as tool stowage at the rear.

The forth and final close up shows the position of the Panzer X's driver with its reinforced glass as well as the low light sensor mounted on the right side of the turret. 

I've also added the AFE faction logo which contains the latin inscription "humano serviens generi" which translates to "In the service of Humanity" The AFE logo itself differs from most other logos in both real life and fiction that feature the Earth as part of their design. While many logo designs feature wings and a Globe the globe in the AFE logo actually has the 23.5 degree axial tilt relative to the ecliptic plane of the Earth.

Great work on the detail. Really gives you an idea of how this tank works that the 6mm version doesn’t. Without a doubt one of my favorite sci fi tanks out there.
