[Welcome to the Sci-Fi Lunch Break, where we'll be supplying you with a cool bit of audio/visual goodness to break up the monotony of the work day. You bring the turkey on rye, we'll bring you something out of this world to watch while you eat it.]

Oh, those crazy Nazis! When they're not busy building secret military bases on the dark side of the moon, they're apparently busy assembling "Spider Tanks". At least that's what Ryan Nagata's short film 1945A would have us retroactively believe.

From Nagata's YouTube page: "It's 1945, and the Allies are on the verge of winning World War II, when suddenly the Nazis unleash an arsenal of super weapons straight out of science fiction turning the tides in their favor. This presentation was done on a VERY small budget. All the tanks and vehicles (Willy's jeep, Stuart tank, Sherman tank, Nazi "Spider" tank) were done with 1:6 scale models, not CGI."

Enjoy and hop over to Nagata's site for some behind-the-scenes look at how the scale model work was done.
