I am very happy to announce, that I just finished two new models. Not a tank but at least on the same level of complexity. The German Sonderkraftfahrzeug 9 or better known as Famo. Famo was the name of the company which built the Sdkfz. 9.

Here is very good source of several pictures from different Famos: Famo.
During the war, the design chaned several times, mostly to save material.
The Famo ca,e in several designs, 
- as a tractor to tow heavy guns and to tranport the crew
- as a recovery truck to rescue tanks and other soft skins
- as a platform for several Flak or AA guns
- as a platform for a crane, the Bilstein crane and the stronger 10 ton crane

If you like to find out more about the differnt uses and versions of the Famo, here is a list of web pages, which I used during design:
