Srcatch build all brass T-34

This section is for builds that are not strictly Tamiya or Heng Long. For instance, replacing the electronics from a WSN or Matorro, or even a scratch-build.

Yup, only if you try to sell it.

This is cool, I would hate to polish it though :haha: :haha:

Awesome little tank!

That's very impressive - it's like Brass locomotives, shame to paint them! Brass takes on its own patina that looks lovely :)

Some superb, stunning engineering skills on display here, Walter. :clap: As ever. :thumbup:
Really love the gun mechanism details especially. it almost appears that it could fire blanks. 8O
My only observation would be- and I hope you don't mind- that the finished model doesn't really resemble a T-34. :| but maybe you didn't intend it to.

Ahhh... (he says, from his out-of-touch-with- trends Highland hideaway) I have to agree with you both. I'd not really heard of 'Steampunk', but yes it does have that feel, much as this model symbolises (but doesn't represent accurately) the Batmobile:

Hi Fellows,
may be I was not all that clear on my intro. The tank was never intended to be a scale model. More like a tank symbol only. Frankly that is the only tank my wife will have on a furniture top of all my lovely scale model tanks.
