Surprise

Post by Exhibitedbrute »

Well as mentioned on a post not so long ago I have a secret tank coming my way. At this point I know what it is as it’s getting on the road to built. But here is the first glimpse of that tank that I received about 2 weeks ago.

I do have another photo update but I will start you all off with this

After leaving you all day with this teaser and very little else, here on some more photos sent to me during the build. Not as many as I would do my self but hey. It’s being built for me as a birthday gift so what can I do.

They are in the wrong order for some reason. I didn’t select them this way but there we go

Having a tank built for me doesn’t happen every year no but I do usually get tank parts for a project I’m working on ever since I got in to it. This like the comet I was testing is 100% abs like resin and seems to be plenty strong enough from what I have seen of the tank myself. Like on any model there are fragile parts but overall it’s seems sturdy. I was planning on doing one myself but now I don’t need to and can run the final print for the comet I’m working on.

Some of the more eagle eyed amongst you will notice the Jerry cans are now gone and replaced with flimsy cans. Here’s a close up
