What a cool tank! Is it RC or strictly static?
Also, I always hate it when little graffiti artists mess up tanks! :haha:

Cool, definitely yes, and without doubt your models would look great in any static exhibition but; to echo the previous question- are your models functional? If so, what do their inner workings consist of (MFUs etc...)?

The fabrication is spectacular, flamme. I'm really impressed how you can create the curved shape of the turret from sheet steel. Are you self-taught or is this something you've learnt through work/trade?

Mr Flamme I say on bended knee taking a bow to you sir.

Your work is excellent, especially your turret. I've contemplated making curved turrets out of steel, then thought, no, life is too short. You have taught yourself well sir :clap: :clap:
