    Hi,

    here is one of my new builds. I love this tank - lots of Details and not too difficult to build :thumb:

    This is the link to this model :

    I didn't found nothing similar to this quality for a free model.

    Wow! That's a nice model. If you went "crazy on ion it" and cut out the wheels and greebled your life into it, there is no telling how far it could go. On the other hand, I also like it just the way you did it! Great build, and great find! :)

    thank you very much... yes, the wheels... but the tracks were more like a lesson in diligence... lol... on the other hand, if it is too simple, it wouldn't look that good. ;-)

    A great job indeed. What you did to the catterpilars (it that right? The "chains" that surrounds the wheels?) is amazing!

    This is my 3rd try to post a reply

    everytime I tried to do that, I got this message : Page could not be displayed and after this I can not go back to the Forum and a new login failed.

    It is very frustrating!


    Thanks alot Rogerio. Yes I guess that's right - my English is not the best ;-)

    I did nothing special to the caterpillar tracks, just followed the instructions of the model

    Greetings

    If that happens again, log the time, and send me a P.M. If you take a long time to reply, you may "time out' and have to log in, then the post won't be able to be entered. I copy and paste the post into a new reply to avoid the hassle.



    You are right bout the tracks, they really came out nice and the way you had them curve over the top rollers added much realism. :)

    Very nice tank. Maybe I'll build it also one day.
    Actually, paper tanks is the reason I started with papercraft. Funny though, I haven't completed one build as of today :)

    (There's an unfortunate spelling error in the title of the thread, confusing me this tank with the Tiger I)

    Thx Zathros - I'll send you a P.M. the next time.

    @Johanvanacker : oups, you are absolutely right - it should be IV (4) and not VI (6) - How can I Change this ?
