Nice tank :grin: , do you have an image of a real one to show us to compare 'blaz62'. :classic:

(a little piece of advice, this 'Sry and thx' the moderators are not fans of the kind of posting.....sorry 'Rufus' for mini-mod'ing) :blush:

Anyway, good luck in your contest with your tank 'blaz62'. :classic:

Not bad. Somethings could be better though, like for example red axle near right front wheel IMO would be better as a black one. But that's not what bother me... What does is: why did you write it's 1:76 scale? It's definately larger...

Apart from that, it's quit nice build.

Good luck with next builds and with the contest too,

Nope, it's not.

The real tank (w/o barrel) is 7,62 meters long, wchich divided by 76 equals 0,1m (10 centimiters, while 1 stud is about 0,8cm long, makes 12,5 studs in lenght). You've got here about 21 (21x0.8cm=16,8 cm) it means, your model is in about 1:45.

Your mistake:

The fact, that the blueprints you used were drawn in 1:76 doesn't mean that it's shown in real proportions on your screen (it all depends on the zoom, resolution etc) - the only way to make blueprints reliable is to download it, than import into a greaphics program, draw a line equal to the scaled lenght(you can also make it to the height or widht, but IMO lenght is the easiest way to do it), than resize the bluperints and print it. The printed bluperints are the ones you can trust. I know it by myself, as I always make my model in 1:40.

I hope you understand everything.

Cheers,

GabryS
