1:100 Barbastro tank released

We've just released the 1:100th version of the Barbastro tank, a handcrafted behemoth locally built in the Aragonese town where the thing borrows the name from, whose 1:72nd scale equivalent is also available from a long since. Unlike its larger sister, this 1:100th Barbastro is DLP 3D-printed in just two parts (main hull and a rotating turret), and it's complemented by two hard plastic machine guns.

Quite large for its poor armament and armour, it was built in very small numbers: only one prototype for sure, and up to three others later, apparently from a slightly improved design. It's uncertain whether any of them saw any fighting at all.
