T28/T95 Super Heavy Tank 1/20 (RC)
Another super heavy and celebration for 1 year on Mocpages.
About this creation
This monster of a vehicle is what inspired me to build the tortoise, after seeing Sariel's version of this tank I was in awe at first sight. The 4 sets of tracks and monstrous size sets this vehicle far apart from the normal silhouette of a normal armored fighting vehicle, It mounts the enormous 105mm T5E1 cannon. Finally I have been able to re-create this vehicle with my own parts, It has many improvements like fully suspended road wheels, removable outer side sponsons, gun elevation and depression.

This was a challenging build because it has very oblique angles on it, so this means that there are small gaps in places where armor plates meet, also the removable side skirts made the continuing of angles difficult so there are gaps in-between there too. The suspension was probably the hardest part of the build for me, I was originally planning to use the HVSS like on my sherman but that was too tall, so after redesigning them it seems to work very well but makes the side skirts somewhat deeper because the outer wheels would fall off.

A fun fact about how many parts are invested in the suspension and tracks alone totals over 1000 parts consisting of 16 springs, 64 road wheels, 16 return rollers, and 16 24z gears.

This vehicle is also a landmark for me, it marks 1 year of building on mocpages.

This is photos of the WIP Stug III Ausf. G, as you can see I have improved a lot over the past year as a builder(even though it's from 2012)



Heres's a image of me with the tank for size comparison.

I have updated my list of upcoming vehicles on my home page for this next year, I will attempt to build most of them.

I would also like to thank those who have followed me and supported my work.
Thanks for 1 great year on Mocpages,

Time for the judging! Creativity/Effort: 5/5, with 1000 parts in the suspension alone, as you stated, this build couldn't possibly have been quick. Originality: 5/5. There are only three T28's on the 'Pages, yours, Alex's, and Cade's. Conformity: 5/5 Popularity: 4.5/5. 19 likes and 14 comments in a little over a week is pretty good! Overall: 19.5/20. You did a wonderful job and beat Krish!

Wow! The armor sloping is simply wonderful, and doubly impressive given that this is built in REAL LIFE. A big "boy howdy" from me, that is one mean machine.

Quoting jack kenyon Amazing to think that they designed all this to mount a 105mm. Light tanks use that today.
The armor on it was designed to hold up against heavy fortifications on the Sigfried line.

I think you probably have noriced small things like how the hull is too high in places or how the front glacis is too flat and large, but I think you can consider this a triumph of Lego Tank design. All of the minor issues are made irreleveant by the I credible level of historic detail such as 16 kndividual suspension bogies, the wonderful removable outer tracks and towing system for transport, and the superb building work of the hull. If I were you I would keep improvinv this in tiny ways, like crew equipment mountz and the like, then spray paint all the hull parts olive green and keep it forever. Superb work.

Nice build! btw, about the stug,. it misses 1 roadwheel, you made 5 and it has 6. The length of the vehicle seems good though, so in my opinion you schould put the wheels closer together. Hope it helps you!

first, congrats on 1 year, you commemorate it well with this mythical tank, excellent choice, the cracks are something you can polish and refine, but, wow, the technics part of it is very neat and clean, I also like the pics of it when the skirts are removed, outside pics and movie are very good, figs for scale might have been a good idea to show how huge this piece is, it impressed me when I saw you with it!

Very, very impressive! Not only does this tank look great, but you've got all of the functionality anyone could possibly want, including the 2D traverse on the main barrel.
