[MOC] Renault FT-17

Recommended Posts

Here's my take at the father of the modern battle tank. Goals: make it green and aim for a reasonable balance between looks and functions. Also, I'm really happy with the upper glacis plate opening up just like in the real tank, because it required creating a complex compact hinge inclined in two planes.

Hah, you're getting quite fancy with the video effects! The presentation is very well done. 

Are the outtakes showing the fragility of this build, or are they just exaggerating it? The access doors seem to have a lot of slack, I'm guessing it's a function of the scale and not being able to attach parts at multiple points. It's still impressive that it can perform outdoors.

There is no slack in the doors. They are simply held in place only by two 1x1 plates with clips, and if you pull too hard, the plates sometimes let go.

I was talking about the engine access doors, I should have been more precise. I watched that portion again and I think it's just the way that window shutter part is made that makes it loose, not the way its attached on the model.

Um no, my white background is physically there.
