Nice job!  What program did you create that in?

I'll put an Ontos on the project list..this is the closest I have right now....t started out a Wiesel clone and mutated .... I use from scratch models so doing exact rebuilds is kind of tedious and I generally do close but not quite models for practice and fun :)..But I beliee ONTOS deserves some love...Cough cough, ya know it would be great to add to WOT...if anyone with such godlike power is listening :D

This is Blender 2.79 using its internal Render engine...I use GIMP for some textures and backgrounds.

It looks like a Jeep, but it is missing the signature front. If a jeep had a recoilless rifle the windshield would have been folded down, or the recoilless rifle's mount would have been reached over the windshield. just like how jeeps with .30 cals and .50 cals  look.

You are exactly right...good eyes and nice to see someone has a proper appreciation of jeeps ....A more accurate title would be "Jeepish"...It was a casual project that was more to practice than a full reproduction of the actual vehicle. I tend to save my close to exact rebuilds for when i am feeling ambitious they can be a bit demanding when I build everything from scratch. The curves and rounded forms of some vehicles can be a pain when yer self taught.... a breeze for people who know what they are doing but that ain't me :D

 

The split Windshield arrangement I took from this pic and others like it... the gun slots though the center cleft so the driver can flip up his windscreen while driving.
