I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with this tank. I'm always so impressed with your abilities.

You should start with recoil first (I did it on mine)
Clark board MFU is also very nice, although sound could be a bit louder.
Cheers

Hello after a year and other projects I have finally decided to modify this tank, I will put a new armor with skirts, I put pictures:
[IMG][/IMG]
This is the version I want to carry out, there is this kit to buy it, but I have decided to do it by hand, at the moment he is wearing 34 pieces
[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]
[IMG][/IMG]
This is the first test to see how the skirts are put, so in the front area it does not have the shape it has to have as the real model
[IMG][/IMG]
In this photo you can see the difference between before and after, I hope you like it, best regards

Such fantastic work!

I must ask... what material and brand are you working with? It appears to be a high grade ABS.

Thanks for the pictures.

Thanks, the plastic I use is polystyrene, from different brands such as Evergreen and other brands that exist in the market much cheaper, I always buy large sheets to be able to have stocks since I am always doing some project, a greeting
