All of your builds are fantastic! They are incredibly detailed for such a small scale. I have only built WWII tanks and vehicles in 1/35 but am anxious to try your designs in real bricks. Some suggestions for you for future builds are:

Porsche Tiger VK4501(P) - Tiger Prototype

Panzer V (Panther)

M7B1 Priest

M3A1 Stuart/British Stuart III w/side skirts

British Sherman MII w/side skirts

Churchill Tank

Thank you. :classic: I sent the requested LDD files in email.

Anyway, for most of my tanks the LDD file (as BI) can be downloaded from my mocpages:

http://www.mocpages....lder.php/192586

go to the requested tank, you wrote the Panzer III: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/415512

then go to the bottom of the description to " Download building instructions (LEGO Digital Designer) "

Panzer IV's LDD file is now also uploaded to mocpages.

Thanks for suggestions.

VK 4501 will coming soon, it's done.

Panther is in progress, I experimenting with colors and side shapes.

Churchill will coming later, it's among my plans.

British Sherman: I have some Sherman variant plans, but the problem is, MII Sherman aren't different enough compared to usual M4A1 to be worth to make.

M3A1 Stuart and similars: there is a big problem with very small tanks, like they. If they are proportional, their details are so small that they barely looking different from each other. The unique details in turret can't be made because of it's very small size, etc. I also thought about making a Stuart, but because I have a nearly finished M2A4, which looks very similar, probably I won't make a Stuart too. People might not think that small tanks (in 3 and 4 wide) are the hardest to make.

I put together all of my Panzer III variants:

18. Hetzer light tank destroyer

20515278998_335af87243_c.jpg

Full resolution picture: https://www.flickr.c...eposted-public/

It was a very succesful ww2 german tank destroyer, based on the excellent Czech construction, the LT vz. 38. Also, it's one of the most commonly known german tank destroyer. During the building, the hardest part was of course the angled top part with the gun. Lot of compromises were needed, but as I can see, I think I caught the character of this tank.

19. KV-2 heavy tank

20516520409_b254b760e0_c.jpg

Full resolution picture: https://www.flickr.c...eposted-public/

KV-2 was a heavy russian experimental tank during ww2. It was equipped with a terrifying 150 mm gun, and had a very characteristic shape with it's tall turret. It's a must have for my collection. The turret was easy to build, since it's relatively big. Most of my building time was spent to the chassis, especially to make the front part.

20. VK 4501 (Tiger P)

20515264740_82fb8a207a_c.jpg

Full resolution picture: https://www.flickr.c...eposted-public/

It's the legendary Porsche Tiger, which was on of the two prototypes of the most famous tank, the Tiger 1. It was more complicated with it's ICE-electric drive (failed during many tests), that's why Henschel's design was put into final production. It was one of the easiest build, I combined the chassis of my Ferdinand with the turret of my Tiger 1:

These are all great! The Stug, T-34, and both Tigers are my personal favorites. Any chance you could make a M18 Hellcat? :classic:

Thanks guys. :classic:Hellcat: I have the M24 Chaffee on the list, and M18 is similar in size and look, but I'll see, how can I make a Hellcat, and probably I'll do it.

Anyway, these US tanks are also on my list:

M7 Priest

M10 Wolverine

M26 Pershing

M3 Lee

21. M18 Hellcat

21348004110_49c936fc92_c.jpg

Full resolution picture: M18 Hellcat mini tank destroyer

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M18_Hellcat

M18 Hellcat was the fastest and most succesful US tank destroyer (and armed vehicle) in ww2. Thanks to it's light construction, it was capable to reach a speed of more than 90 km/h. With Lego, the build was quite easy until the making of the turret, that has a tricky shape for Lego parts. This results contains some compromises. I tried to make the authentic decals too.

22. Char B1 (bis)

21524885442_5a4f46f4fe_c.jpg

Full resolution picture: Char B1 bis mini tank

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Char_B1

Char B1 bis was an interwar tank, which was used also in ww2 by the French army. This is considered as the last tank with similar shape to ww1 tanks. Had two guns, a big, 75 mm howitzer in the hull, and a smaller one (47 mm) in the turret. Was quite succesful in ww2 compared to it's obsolete design. This Lego model was hard to build because of it's track covering plates (they are made with these panels: http://alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=30413#T=C ). I tried to give it a characteristic camouflage too.

23. Panther

22388730533_d9ce3d33cc_c.jpg

Full resolution picture: Panther mini tank

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panther_tank

It's one of the most famous and succesful (German) tanks in ww2, many people consider it as the best medium tank. The building was pretty challenging, it's always hard to create these types of front parts with the driving wheels and angled frontal armor. The rollers are overlapped, and I tried to catch it's angled armor on the sides, back and turret.

I also made a camouflaged version:

24. Panzer I

22591575757_39a5cdddde_c.jpg

Full resolution picture: Panzer I mini tank

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panzer_I

Panzer I's were used in the beggining of ww2, in large numbers, for many missions, purposes. It was very light and fast, but also weak against other tanks (later). Had no guns, only one or two MGs. The build was easy because of it's size, but also very limited, in very small tanks, like this, there are less possibilities to create a form, a detail.

25. Panzer II

22591572927_92fce0846f_c.jpg

Full resolution picture: Panzer II mini tank

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panzer_II

A bigger brother of the Panzer I, this time with a 20 mm main gun. Was widely used in whole ww2, and many variants were produced. It was quite easy to build, only the rollers were challanging because of the placing.

and... I reworked my old Panzer 38(t), which now look better (imho):

8. Little Willie

Little Willie was a prototype in the development of the British Mark I tank. Constructed in the autumn of 1915, it was the first completed tank prototype in history. Little Willie is the oldest surviving individual tank. /Wikipedia/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Willie

Since it was made in 1915, now it has the 100 years anniversary, this was a must have in my collection. :classic:

Full size image: https://www.flickr.c...eposted-public/

The build was pretty hard. The form seems to be easy, but there are so many characteristic details that it became difficult to make the proportions and connecting points at the same time. Has no rollers, and two "holes" in the track carrier frame, like the original. In the top, I made the turret connection ring too, that's a pearl dk gray technic disk. Little Willie has two wheels to help in the turning, sadly there is no better alternative, than those 2 studs diamater round tiles. Technic pulleys and medieval coach wheels would be too big.

I tried to make as less studs visible, as I could, imho the result is satisfying.

The last few posts were written all by me, are there no other ww1 Lego builders/fans except me? Eurobricks is the biggest forum, that should be proven. I'm courios what do you think about ww1 mini tanks.

Full resolution picture: Sturmpanzer IV Brummbär mini assault gun

German assault gun in ww2, built on the chassis of Panzer IV. The two 2x1 tiles in the front can be held by strickers, sadly, there is no 2x4 tile with center stud in Lego.

info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brummb%C3%A4r

28. M24 Chaffee

27535097390_9f802ddcf0_c.jpg

Full resolution picture: M24 Chaffee mini tank

Light US tank, used in the end of ww2. The darkgreen color is special, so there are some parts (like the gun) which require darkgreen sticker covers. In reality, the four 1x3 dkgreen tiles above the tracks are held by strickers, like tools, or logs.

info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M24_Chaffee

29. M10 Wolverine

Do you have instructions for the T95? It is my favorite tank of all time, if there are no instructions yet, please add them on this website.

Thanks.

Well like on Lego Designer.

Hi!

Here you can download:

www.brickshelf.com/gallery/mbmc137/Mini-Tanks/T-28-T-95/zt-28-t29-bi.lxf

It's not an easy model, the tracks are held by strings at the ends, you have to attach them to links, and put the other end of string between the front and rear plates. Friction will hold them strongly.

Usually, there are some instructions for my mini tanks in Mocpages, but now the site doesn't work. If it will again, first try to search there, not every, but many of my tanks have instructions there.

Anyway, it seems to me, this section is quite dead, the military topics especially, I don't know why, this is Eurobricks. I uploaded several new mocs in one post and no reply at all. :sceptic:

Should I post in another subforum my tank mocs?
