I'm not sure, you'd have to look into it. I do know that it's free.

 

I'll have to look into it and test it out. Thanks for the recomendation.

I'm curious as to what software you use to make this. Is it Lego digital designer?
 
I recommend Stud.io, as it's hooked up with your Bricklink attack so that you can order the peices after you build it. I haven't used it yet, but it might be useful for these tanks you make.
 
Keep up the good work! I can't wait to see the final result!


It is indeed Lego Digital Designer

Hmm, Stud.io you say? I'll have to check that out, especially with the Bricklink feature. Can you import LDD builds into it?

Thank you, I hope to get some motivation to do it soon, haha!

I was hoping to finish this beast by the end of 2018, but obviously that didn't happen. I left for a vacation to the Philippines, and got back two days ago. I realized right before I left for said vacation, that the hull of my build was 4 studs too long, or an inch. The length I had picked was the length of the M6A1 HT with the barrel forward. So, basically, with those 4 extra studs in the hull, I made the hull too long by an inch. I know exactly where and what 4 studs I need to remove to rectify this problem, but lost pretty much all my motivation to fix it due to how much work that would take, considering it took me 5.25 hours to do the hull. I'm planning on copying and pasting the completed hull assembly and trying to fix the problem as quickly as possible without losing my mind. Hopefully this is a quick fix.

Yellow studs denote where I plan to remove those studs to shorten the hull.

One more hour. 6 hours total.

I managed to finish the hull. That took 45 minutes. I did some very minor detailing on the engine deck, I thought I took a screenshot, but like I said, it's very minor. And that's how far I got with the turret in 15 minutes. Trying a new idea of planning it out via doing the turret roof detailing first. Luckily, this turret has flat sides, at least vertical, and translates well into LEGO with the weird shaping it has.

Cheers.

Add another hour. 5 hours of work.

Doing the side hull that's not descending. Focusing on the front of the tank due to it being simpler. Not too much got done as I was trying to figure out where to mount the turret and how to finish the rear and rear side hull shaping.

Cheers.
