Elefant 1/15 (RC) . Well i'm back after a month of inactivity. That was mainly due to having robotics every day from 3PM to 6PM and even 8PM some nights. I have had the chassis of this for around 3 weeks so it has had progressive work on it over that time. . so about this build, it was a very interesting build because I wanted to incorporate some complex mechanisms into this before applying them on my churchill or T28. The main mechanism that I tested in this is a system that uses 2 adders to compare the RPMS from the rear drive sprockets to the engine's idling motor, therefore it creates a realistic idling sound when the tank accelerates. I also built the casemate with a interior for it. The main drawback of the whole tank is that there is only 6 axles holding up 8 Lbs of lego and... well that leads to quite a few problems with the suspension arms bowing and it becoming tracked often. Though with the suspension it mimics the original tank as close as possible. The Elefant has a interesting suspension, the roadwheels are configured in pairs but the way they are sprung is the cool part. The way the springs work on my Elefant is that one spring allows the bogie to compress on one side of it and the other is located on the frame and that one allows the axle that the bogie to compresses on one side to pivot the opposite direction ( therefore making it independent and it allows for floatation) The elefant was a tank destroyer based on the Tiger P (Porsche) ,after the Tiger P was rejected in favor for the Tiger H. Majority of the Tiger P's were converted into tank destroyers. The Tiger P was a complex machine , it consisted 2 V-12 engines that drove electric generators that sent power to the electric motors on the final drives. The tank suffered from numerous failures and breakdowns due to it being so complex. After the war there are only 2 Elefants that remain in restored condition. Those vehicles were used for reference for the interior (even though there isn't much interior left that isn't rusted or removed. This thursday will be receiving around 1000 parts for my birthday ( if the BL orders arrive on time) those parts will be used to construct a Churchill and later on a T28 superheavy tank. so enjoy this build. More pics of the internals and suspension here the gun traverse lock hatches the red lever enables the lights The engine hatches ( i used 2 v-6's instead of 2 V-12's because i didn't have enough parts rear hatch for casemate the interior full with 24 shells and whatever else i could fit SNOT work, probably my best so far the suspension
