About this creation
Well this is what I spent a couple of my hours today doing, taking 130 photos for this and building a new medium tank for CHE in D&C III. So without any further rambling on about this tank I present you My Instructions for my lego 1/35 Maus, Enjoy.

things to keep in mind when using my instructions

white pieces are just for supporting stuff (excluding the ones in the suspension
panels will be shown from above and below means they are usually 2 studs thick (there are some exceptions with small bits adding a third layer.
parts laid above or off to the side show what parts are being added (usually as a reference on more complex parts)
certain parts are broken down to give a better idea of what the one next to it is in the full assembly
finally if you rebuild this and decide to post it anywhere please give me some credit, and also feel free to modify the design( the turret isn't perfect and the rear is missing the auxiliary fuel tank)





make 12 of the white and black bogie parts



you will make 2 of all of the following until I say stop





the axles above indicate what axles are used to connect the parts and the blue pins are 3 long







the black beams are 15 long





you can stop making pairs of the parts





pay close attention to how the bogies are oriented and what color the sides are (remember white ones don't have the 3/4 pins)









there is a total of 90 links used ( it uses 45 on each side)









the gear assembly together from the previous picture





the bracket assembly





the bracket assembly assembled





theres a side view of the part (make one of these assemblies with the two "mirrored parts')





it assembled



















































both of these views of the parts above and below are "mirrored" (they are opposites)







the two parts connected



















the 1x4 tile and plate assembly goes on the other side along with the 1x2 cheeses







that 1x4 tile and plate assembly is attached on the top





















































Make 2 of these (picture above)









finished hull















this is how you would mount a M motor (i'm using the body of one that shorted-out) it would need a 2 long axle and a full bush in the end of the driving part of the motor

















































































now you finally have your own Maus





my Cat and the Maus





and finally one of my tanks that is swooshable

Quoting Alex Sonny
Well as cheap as the parts are, I can't afford them, as I'm saving for a trip to Gamescom this year. Besides, I plan to make an RC tank, and the PF components would cost me around 70 alone (just two M motors, a batbox, a reciever and a remote), and the rest about 40. So it's actually pretty complicated, but I guess I'll get it eventually, like in half a year. I'll get a job in between, no problem.
With my next upload there's a independent sprung suspension on a light vehicle. if you want to make a small ( approx fig size or larger) RC vehicle you could use that and use a old battery box that uses 9v batteries.

Quoting Tommy S. Why won't you make the pz 3/4 I real life ? There's BL for cheap parts.

Quoting Alex Sonny Oh this is superb! The instructions are super-clear, at least to me, because I work with Technic a lot (I just don't post it), the internal workings of this are incredibly well designed and compact, those tracks sure take up a lot of space. Unfortunately, the likelyhood of me actually making this is as big as the one of me ever doing the P.z III/IV in real life...

Quoting killswitch95 [DEMON] nice, your cat is very poofy, looks like he/she is a good holding while loving cat... and it can swoosh, but can it drift?
I have two if the cats like this and they are brothers, it could drift on ice

Wow, excellent! I was expecting LDD instructions; this is a real treat! I think the hardest part about making your own building instructions is making it clear which parts go together, unless you want to do it one piece at a time like TLG. You did a great job with the modular photos. They are set up really well, and they do make it clear how to build the parts. A well planned post, 5/5. Great job! Now to find all those pieces... =D
