Well done! :=p

This sort of reminds me of a T-50 Russian tank. Is this something in particular or of your own design?. You might also upload this to GB too in their Prefabs Section!

Thanks Capt!
I scaled it to be about medium size, and modified the brushwork to fit the texture. If anything, it has a body resembling an American Patton and a turret of a German Tiger.

This is a fantastic example of using brushwork and textures in perfect tandem to give the illusion of detail and realism on what is actually quite a simple shape. Perfect design!
I'd maybe show the tracks on the inside as well, and the barrel's brushwork is out of alignment with the muzzle, but overall this is a fantastic bit of prefabbery.

Great work!

Thanks Archie.
I heeded your advice and made some tweaks.
I also Included the .rmf for those who don't have/use Sledge.
No guarantee that everything will look nice in the .rmf though, I made some sloppy cuts.

Holy moley! That's awesome!!! .D.

Next tank request! A Panzer VIII, aka Der Maus
(Google it, it's wunderbar)

I tried doing this back in the day, but getting everything to line up properly is a massive pain in the ass. Kudos.

I tried it too and couldn't figure it out. So of course I thought it was black magic and gave up.

I started with the top, then moved to the sides, front and back.

Step 1: Create block the size of tank base, fit the top texture to the tank base.
Step 2: Make 2 cuts lengthwise where the tracks meet the body
Step 3: Angle the front and rear hulls
Step 4: Pick a side and fit the tread pattern to it.
Step 5: Cut the sides to fit the texture
Step 6: Apply tread patterns on sides
Step 7: Clone and flip treads to other side of tank

Repeat these steps for the Turrett.
