This is the sixth LEGO tank I created so far. It is not a replica but a fictional design. I tried to put as much functionality in the model as i could. It has a working main gun with an autoloading six shot magazine. Both the turret and the barrel have a full range of motion. Finally the tank has a sturdy suspension and a turret ring.
Best-looking LEGO tracked vehicle I've ever seen, period. Functional design's also excellent. Boundlessly impressed with your aim in the first shooting scene. Given the slop in LEGO gear trains, swinging the turret directly to the correct azimuth without adjustment 6 times in a row is almost unbelievable.

Absolutely excekkent!!! Any chance you could explain how the firing mech works..... I have been working on a firing tank for about a week and I am struggling. Thank you
Thanks, glad you liked it. Have you seen my other videos by any chance? I have made a couple that should give you a pretty good idea how the firing mechanism works:
this is a short video of it in operation.
this is a long video of it being build.
This is my first tank video in which i also talk at length about the firing mechanism.
Should be more videos about it and different firing mechanisms during the summer when i am finished with uni.
Good luck with your tank!
