The 'Endgame' Heavy Tank Challenge was an FD Scale challenge held in 2020. It was set up by Kiwi Imperialist

The original thread can be found here:

The introduction of the Tiger I heralded a new era for the heavy tank. The lumbering beasts of yesteryear gave way to truly fearsome machines. At the same time, however, the role of the heavy tank began to diminish. The main battle tank eventually appeared at the forefront of armoured warfare and the heavy tanks of the 1950s - Conqueror, M103, T-10, AMX 50 - soon came to represent a last gasp of the concept. This swansong of the heavy tank will be our focus. You are asked to draw a fictional heavy tank which entered service in or after 1942. It may serve in the armed forces of a real-life nation, or one of your own creation. Welcome to the 'endgame' heavy tank challenge! Please read the challenge rules relating to submissions and drawings.

   Your submission must depict a heavy tank which first entered service during or after the year 1942.
