It isn't a model either, but you are sort of in the right area.

(it isn't a macro shot)

Military assault vehicle or tank of some sort?
Next guess would be construction vehicle because of the yellow not being a good camoflauge color.

I think it just came to me with the model clue. Train engine? Sorry for the multiple guesses.

Jim is right, it is a British WWII tank, a Matilda at the Imperial War Museum.

Excellent, Asher! One of my favourite books when I was a lad was Tramp In Armour by Colin (?) Forbes, about a Matilda tank and crew trying to escape from behind enemy lines in WWII. I bet they didn't have it painted quite so brightly. I don't remember it looking so smart when I was last at the Imperial War Museum about thirty years ago.

Ah yes a Matilda - such a nice British idea to name it after a woman  - rather than all those Tigers, Conqueror and T numbers

OK back to the Macros
