Not mein genre, but I must say this looks impressive. Not a rivet counter, but this looks like it would finish up nicely. Did the driver have to control the blade open-hatched? That would not be pleasant under fire.

The M48A1 dozer actually didn't come as a surprise ... but the SPAAG is !
Happens when you don't closely monitor what Gerald is up to in his basement all by himself !
Both look very nice indeed !
The M48 is very very tempting .... just wanted to start on the Biber !

The Berlin M48 has been finished on the building side, waiting for paint, but..... I suspect the universe was holding off on that as Gerold was slaving away with the dozer conversion. Ordered it as soon as his PSM email hit the in-box.

The Marksman conversions look interesting, wouldn't mind seeing those closer-up.

The M48A2-A5 dozer has been out for a while. Also a full conversion for the German engineering version with no main gun.
