[MOC] T34-85 WWII Soviet Tank

Recommended Posts

I prepared this model for Brickworld Chicago couple weeks ago. It is quite playable on a table, and was a great show material. I build a slope with books and make it go up and down.

The winter livery was due to limitation of available Lego pieces. However few stickers I made are based on my memories of a monument I saw in Russia, rather than pictures online.

The model has 4 motors and Sbrick for smartphone control. RC functions: drive left and right track, turret rotation and gun elevation. Also the model features authentic Christie suspension.

Very nice. Impressive that you got all this functionality in such a small model. Can you post a photo of the inside?

Very cool. Nice use of the 11th Street Bridge for the film.

Can we get some more pictures of the internals?

Hi legomarat, very nice model of one of the greatest tanks in WW2! :thumbup:

I will make photos of the internals soon.

Great, I'm curious how you managed the Christie suspension. I've been fiddling a bit with a T34, but never found the space to place shock absorbers inside.

Great model, the suspension mimics that of the real configuration of the T34, I love how compact the Mechanisms are for the turret traverse and gun elevation, I wish I had a micro motor for those usages.

There's almost enough space in the turret for a recoil function, maybe if a micro motor is used.

Hopefully some day when I find the proper road wheels I can build one of these in 1/15

Are the rubber tires wedge belt wheels ? :thumbup:
