For my new project, I will be creating the World War II American heavy tank, the M6A1 (T1E1). This will be the first time I've designed a heavy tank out of LEGO. I have done the M7 MT twice, and got decently far with the T1E2 and T1E3 Cunningham LT's before I lost all my data on them. I may restart those projects soon.
At any rate, I suspect this project will be slow going as this tank is quite large and has an interesting suspension system, a small caliber coaxially mounted cannon, multiple hull mounted MG's, and is quite large due to a lot of dead air.
This was the first heavy tank that was standardized in the US's history, the first of 3. We have designed many more, but this is the progenitor of standardized American heavy tanks.
Once I finish this project, I may create the M6A2E1-1 heavy tank which was based on this chassis/hull and mounted a much larger gun in a much larger turret.
We shall see.
Again, this will be 1/35th scale to match all my other LEGO tanks and AFV's.
Actual to 1/35th Scale.
Length: 27ft 8in (Gun Forward) to 9.5in at 38 studs.
Width: 10ft 3in to 3.5in at 16 studs.
Height: 9ft 10in to 3.4in at 27 studs.
The M6A1/T1E1 by itself.
M6A1 HT with M5A1 Stuart LT.
M6A1 HT with M3 Lee MT and M3 Stuart LT.
