First vehicle of 2015
About this creation
I present my first model of 2015, and my first 1/15 Soviet vehicle. This model was interesting to build, as it is planned to enter in the Sbrick contest on Eurobricks, one of the limitations was that I could only use 2 IR receivers and their outputs. This made the model interesting, as it uses a transmission for controlling the DShK and Turret traverse. The turret of the vehicle was difficult to replicate, as it is casted on the real vehicle, with no hard edges. The model performs great, and it tore through the snow faster than any model I have taken outside ( it had fresh AA's in it too, I might plan to get a rechargeable battery pack.)

Also, I got to borrow a DSLR camera until summer, so al of the photos have nice lighting, that means less editing for me.

The functions are, working suspension, self tensioning track with first road wheel and idler, gun traverse lock, gearbox with 3 modes for the turret/DShK, and gun elevation/Depression.

Excellent build! I think this may your best work yet. You really nailed the shaping on this one, and the functions are absolutely superb.

Glorious! Very nice piece of Soviet Technology, and definitely your best yet when it comes to the shaping and proportions, or maybe second only to the Panther. The hull is spot on, while the turret front is not perfect, it is as close as LEGO gets, so this is a perfect 420/10.

Quoting killswitch95 [DEMON] very very nice, you made the sloped plates spot on EDIT: after watching the video, i dont know what gear ratio your using, but it seems to provide a perfect balance of torque and speed, nice job finding the balance... oh and if you can get a moment in time, please look at my review of the challenger, thanks... OH and yes, rechargeable batteries is a great idea, i bought some just for the challenger, and ive gotten about 2 hours of play out of them, and they only take 5 hours to charge, if your interested i can specify which ones if you want, again, great work as always Tommy :)
It uses a 12:20 reduction, and I will get a Lego rechargeable battery, as it is smaller then the standard one.
