Agreed- the barrel could use some more stability, but looks good overall.  Nice shaping on the body, and I especially like the way the turret was done- it's great!

Wow, but areno female tanks around there? The Barrel seems not fully straight :devil:

But stronk tenk not care about gender.

Barrel warp is something I have been fighting with almost every model, It has a 32 stud long axle running through it. I guess I could always try custom Aluminum  or steel axles, that would work

It appears TCLB misread the IS tank wiki... Lol some sort of alternative history where Stalin develops IS-7 in 1944 instead of 1948, and unleashes the massive 130mm armed beast against puny German Panther and King tiger tanks. I bet a couple dozen of these could have easily taken Berlin  in 1944 as fast as Germany took Paris.

long time ago I built a system bricks racing sailboat. I learned that mast made from 3x more 4023 flat 2x2 round plate barrels is stronger that mast made from 3941 1L tall 2x2 round barrels.

Tank is great BTW.

Here's a GIF of the transmission/steering unit. I will be releasing the LDD on Rebrickable for it later this week.

I agree that this is absolutely your best tank so far. Particularly impressed with the curves in the model. Looking forward to the publication on Rebrickable!

I don't know how you do it but I'm mighty glad you do, I wouldn't know where to start.

Without doubt this is your best build yet.

I have always really enjoyed your tanks.  And the amount of details that go into the digital renderings, the details, shots of innards and digital overlays are just incredible.  As always, thanks for sharing.

Your tanks are amazing and this one is incredible.  Growing up I was into reading about the world wars and the machines used (tanks, fighter aircrafts) and as a result I got into building tamiya models.  Today I'm struggling to stay focused on technic supercars with these great tanks of yours!

Keep up the great work!
