At risk of seeming over keen, my super Pershing!

Pershing built, detailed, painted and photographed by me. Most of the super Pershing element done by Frankie (extra armour, counterweight etc)

Tank started as a super Pershing and was extensively converted using parts from DKLM, IMPACT tracks and much scratch building. She's got a tamiya battle system running tamiya electrics, crew are from SOL.

The tank kit was designed by myself, made of styrene and printed parts. All electronics are from HL and Mato.

I might as well give it a shot even though I have a potato camera.

Here's my T-90 SM, tank number 113 of the Russian Federation complete with the Stalinium armour package and Russian bias.

Jokes aside, the kit is from DKLM and the tank is powered by a TK60. It's got a 380 motor powering the gearboxes as well. The T-90 in the pictures goes by the name "Rumble" because he's so loud that everyone looks around and wonders where the sound of a bulldozer is coming from.

Love all of the entries, but my personal favourite, is the m26e1-1 super Pershing, always been a favourite tank of mine, and an exquisite model

I also love a good figure on a tank. @) @) :haha:

This one was named for two reasons, I have cat named Nancy, and Bob Seger has a great song that mentions Hot Nancy.

As for this month's competition, we once again have a difficult decision as all these tanks look just great. I know how much work went into both Tom's Pershing and Louis' Bulldog, but that Japanese tank is quite unique and looks great. Very tough choice, and I'm still not sure who I'll vote for, but congratulations to all of this month's entrants on building superb tanks. The quality of tanks in this competition just gets better and better. So good I'm almost afraid to enter one of my own. But, if I ever finish the 1/6 Hetzer I'll throw my hat in the ring. I mean really, who could fail to vote for a 1/6 tank that shoots .50 caliber paintballs? Big RC tank fun and you can also pepper the neighbor's house if they get out of line. @) @) :/
