Strange and offbeat armor

I am a huge fan of the strange and offbeat in the world, from music to movies... Books and people
This extends into armor, I love the strange and sometimes daft designs from the Germans, like the kugalpanzer (balltank) or mine-runner.

What's the strangest vehicle you have built? Any odd prototype or "paper panzer" you wish someone made a kit of?

The strangest one I saw was that Russian experiment with the Ferris wheels

I remember seeing one of these at a model shows/contest. It has been a few years ago, maybe over ten years ago and my memory fades right now on the details of the build.
I believe a photo of the "ferris wheel" tank was also published in FineScale Model magazine (or another magazine).
Wish I could remember more of the build or had photos to re-fresh the mind right now, but no, senility is slowly taking over.

AWD...i think?...

Alex it was called the Tsar Tank and I think only one was built.

What I read it was not fun to drive, kept getting stuck, maybe they should not have tested it in the Russian bogs to start with.

but yeah I could see it being fun somewhere with hard ground or maybe some big ol' knobby tires on it!!

then there were the flying tanks of Russia..or the double tracked US heavy tank.

hahaha...look at the Moon Puppy talkin' about armor....
