Since i was stumbling over my grey pieces and i always wanted to build 1, i present you my tiger tank.
It's in an exact 1:40 scale, does it need any further explanation? :tongue:

Yes i am still missing a grey hinge plate with 2 fingers.....if anybody has a spare one, i'd be much obliged...

The Brickarms XX coronel that has turned into a fleshie and the SMG:

In the future i would like to make some of these on railcars, that is the reason why it's 12 wide, the cars will look like this:

More pictures in the BS folder, when moderated ofcourse.

It looks amazing !
Is it 100% Lego?
If yes,I would present this to TLC, maybe they would finally consider a WWII line if they see great MOCs like yours.
What about a Russian T-34 tank? Shermans? German Mark IVSpecials??? Or a Japanes "tankette"?
Have you build tanks before? If so, please provide us newbies with a link...

Keep up the good work!

Very Well Done! I see a number of places where you managed to use basic bricks to great effect without having to resort to more extreme techniques.  I'd love to see this on a train car with equipment.

Great work as always!  :wub: I think you've captured the look quite well. I especially like the simple muzzle brake solution.

Are you deliberatly mixing bley and old grey? It looks good eitherway.

And it was finally finished!

You have not only succeeded in creating a really good replica of the old machine of war, but you did it (as far as I can tell) without using illegal building techniques! Kudos for that.

Now. If only you could find some "Technic Disc 3 x 3 with Axlehole" Posted Image for the tracks (the closest color they are made in is dark gray)  :wink:

My favorite parts of this awesome lego creation are the treads with the wheels positioned perfectly, and the fuel tanks? on the back.

What a lovely little tank Captain :wink: The details are really nice, I love that machine gun and colonel.

I hope I can see it IRL someday soon. But I'm pretty sure I will.
Anyway keep up the good work on all of your projects. :thumbup:

The fig and SMG came from brickarms and the stickers are made by me though.

The dark grey color is exactly the problem i have with those. I see the holes in the wheels as bolts, and i quite like them as they are.

What are those arc type pieces on the tank commanders hatch?  I've been fussing over my StuG III  trying to get the hatch right.  BTW looks VERY nice.

I already had a Topic in the Licensed Forum since it was originally made for my boys when they play Indiana Jones (note these 2 Stugs are the first attempt version ones)  see if this works http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=20930  or this http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=339832

that's a 4*4 plate round (like in the good wizard impukse set)

Bad part is that you have to remove the minifig's legs in order to put him on it...

A very nice tank, where does it see action? Western front, Eastern front, North Africa?

I'm making something similar at the moment ;-)

Since it is grey it is fighting in the Western front.
I'd say white tanks would be in the eastern and tan ones in Africa just to keep things simple. :laugh:
