Without the help of a lego set

Without the help of youtube 

But by your own sheer creativity

and made a lego tank?

I've mostly been more interested in model trains, but I do dabble in a bit of LEGO-mostly realistic MOC's of buildings and such.

 

However, I do know a fellow player who happens to be my cousin who has made several LEGO tanks including a T-35. He's currently working on a Tiger (P).


"I like trains. Deal with it." I mostly play Tier VII and VIII-and am 80% F2P. (I need garage slots!)

Favorite light tank:LTTB, favorite medium:M26 Pershing, favorite heavy:VK 100.01 (P), favorite tank destroyer:SU-152

     but all tanks are good if you know how to play them!

Is T-34 and Tiger Porsche in a set?

COBI makes a lot of tanks I believe they have T-34.   Also that player I was telling you about is making those tanks custom. They aren't sets.

I have a couple times. 

If you have a lot of money to spare, you can check out this company: https://www.brickmania.com/

They make a lot of cool stuff made from Lego, but they come with a high price.

I've chekced them out, but too pricey for a penny pincher like me! They look great though.

Brickmania’s too expensive for my taste, but I do buy COBIs from time to time. I can’t say I’ve built many MOCs, much less tanks, but I built this with LEGO Digital Designer a year or two ago: https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/172639-moc-maz-7310-uragan-cargo-truck/&tab=comments#comment-3132329

I made mini KV-2 once. I was gonna make a mini SU-100Y but then the E75 TS Event came along.

I find lego parts and have build myself an tank that takes inspirations from Su-100y and Jagtiger

 

it can withstand 5-8 105 fps HIRs (High Impact Rounds) range 3 ft from the front before the rounds essentially shake the parts apart.

 

I also built an WW2 era aircraft carrier that is compartmentalized, can float, can withstand an uncountable number of HIRs, and has a complement of 3 squadrons of 9 aircraft 

 

I have improved these designs to be more and more durable using the same amount of parts

I have a few Cobi tanks. A Tiger 131 and a Pz. 4. I have a Battle of Berlin scene set up with them in it, as well as some German soldiers.

 

No, I’m not defending German technical superiority, I’m stating the ****ing obvious!

they are hand picked and some of the parts are custom. 80$ seems a bit much.

Make some TKS tankettes. You’ll have enough pieces to make 50 of em.

How do you destroy your own when you don't have enough to build one in the first place?

All the parts I build. Then no more parts.

So, I rebuild.

Had that idea long ago.

There’s something called wheels, and i dont have many round lego stuff in my stash. No matter how small the tank I will always need 6-8 round thingies.

I tried to use small 1x1 studs as wheels and damn its tiny af.
