A model of the T1 Cunningham that I made in LDD (well, duh.)
About this creation
A rear view of the T1 Cunningham model.
The T1 Cunningham with its gun raised.
A close up of the interior (yes, I know how boring it is.)
A close up of the tank treads, which were not nearly as much of a pain as I expected them to be.
Weight: 8.6 tons
Armament: 37 mm M5/37 mm semi-automatic M1924
The T1 Cunningham only ever existed as a prototype. Two variants were designed: the T1E2, and the T1E4. They remained in the prototype stage 1922 to 1928, and neither was ever mass produced.
Number of steps in LDD instructions: 83 (this is sort of a joke statistic just to get an idea of how bad the LDD building guide is)
I started this model with the idea not to include treads and just leave the wheels, because I had heard how much of an absolute pain treads in LDD could be. But then, as I started on the upper chassis, I decided to give the treads a go. It ended up being much easier than I anticipated, and I intend to do treads on most of my future tank models (unless a model's treads are making me rip my hair out.)
