More NOOT NOOT characters and STUFF
Totally clearing out the WiP folder, this one needed color so YES.
He-162 and a Kettenkraftrad
“Krad” belongs to kampfgruppevonweidner, Amsel is mine (I love the Krad character btw It’s always fun to draw odd vehicle types as these kinds of critters yesss)
oh and that plane is badass!
I think the Germans made the most impressive machines in the war. For example the Schwerer Gustav. 800mm of artillery power! I never knew it was even possible to build a gun of that size. Ooooh and their dream of the Landkreuzer P1500! I am a fan of their Maus A mobile bunker is something you don't want to see heading towards you
YEs haha! My favourite of the giant tracked THINGS is the Karl-Gerät, a 600mm mortar tank - biggest of its kind, odd but neat lil thing. Most of those super projects weren't very effective but the Germans made some very impressive advances in technology at the time, from the Ho-229 jet-powered flying wing to essentially designing the first modern submarine (Type XXI "Electroboot" - everything after the war was pretty much based on that layout. It's the first sub really designed to run for long periods of time underwater. I did see a similar project the Japanese were working on as well.) I've been lucky enough to get to see the last Type XXI and it's a very impressive machine.
The eyes on that He-162 reminds me of "Eddie the Head" from Iron Maiden. That band mascot even inspired me to put eyes on two of my planesonas.
