I'm back! After a month long ban break I'm back.  So a while into that month I got a little sad, Brickmania was selling a panther tank, which is my favorite real life tank. But it was WAY out of my willing price range for a Lego set (most BM sets are) so I decided "scr*w this! I'm going to make a Lego Panther tank if it kills me!" I did some extensive research on the tank and looked through as many pictures and instructions of Lego versions as I could find, finally I was able to make one. It actually turned out much better than I expected considering how often I'm forced to improvise. 

 

The tank has 3 opening hatches although the two on the hull are very hard to open. It's gun does go up a little, it has a travel lock for the gun in the back and its' tracks roll very smoothly. It is both fully functional and eye candy.

 

What do you all think of my first (to my mind successful) attempt at a 1/35 scale Lego tank?

Of course you can't have a Lego German medium without a Lego Russian medium to kick its' butt.

 

I started out by trying to build a Lego Type 59 but it didn't quite end that way. I honestly don't know what tank this is or would be in real life but for now I've given it the title "T-68".

 

It has 3 opening hatches, a posable turret machine-gun, good gun elevation, two fuel tanks, surprisingly good traction, removable side skirts (it can role on flat smooth wood) and of course one Russian log.

 

What do you think of this Russian medium that's about as real as the KV-6?

Sorry I don't have instructions for these (I can't remember how I made them) but I do have one 1/35 scale Lego TD (also made up) with instructions rolling out soon.

 

I hope you enjoy and if not at least found it interesting. As always if your all getting sick of these extensively off-topic posts then I'll stop doing them.

(P.s, please try and egnore the stupid colors on the T-68, I at that point started running low of good ol gray bricks and had to start working with other colors)

Very cool, I've seen the Maus video before (if only I had that many parts) but the T29 is a new one for me

Photo links here don't work as they should.

 

If you wish to see the tank pictures, use this thread to see them, as shown in a recent Brick Show.

I played TDs before it was cool. It was also never cool to begin with.

Because of the new garbage handling of photos on Photobucket and their new garbage policies, please excuse the new ruined above posts, and enjoy an overall view of this events with my new host, which will take some time to figure how to handle and compose new threads covering future events.

Thank you in advance for your understanding.
