#489665 The LEGO T20 Medium Tank Series and Derivatives Project

Posted by Neyo Wargear on 28 December 2021 - 10:24 AM

1.5 hours of work, 3.5 hours total.

Switched to my third suspension. Looking much better.

Move the suspension bogies closer together. They have space between them in real life, but this needed to be done to make the hull the right size. Got the idler in the front in the right spot. But getting the front and rear hull shaping is going to be a bastard and a half.

Cheers.

Greetings SSLFer's,

It's been a while since I've last made a new tank.

I'll be starting with the T20 Medium Tank series and its derivatives: the T21 Light Tank, T22 Medium Tank series, T23 Medium Tank series, T25 Medium Tank series, and T26 Medium Tank series. T20E1 MT, T20E2 MT, T20E3 MT, T21 LT, T22 MT, T22E1 MT, T22E3 MT (The T22E2 MT is lost to history or I can find no information regarding it), T23 MT, T23E1 MT, T23E2 MT, T23E3 MT, T25 MT, T25E1 MT, T26 MT, T26E1 MT, T26E2 MT, T26E3 MT, T26E4 MT, and T26E5 MT.

1:35 Scale:
Length, Hull Only: 21 studs
Length, Gun Forward: 27 studs
Width: 11 studs
Height: This is being ignored for now.

Reference Blueprint:

2 hours of work, 2 hours total.

Getting the initial layout of the hull figured out.

AyYugNm.png
Here you can see my first two suspension attempts. The middle and back ones being the initial one with the front one being the second type that I stuck with for a while.

HBR2uCl.png
Now I've added some suspension bogie detailing. This is an early Horizontal Volute Spring Suspension or HVSS.

JcIgkPK.png
Realizing that currently the tank is too wide, needed to shave off two studs.

1HaxFcz.png
Up and made a third suspension bogie. I'll more than likely switch to this one as the current suspension bogies are far too tall. And a bit too deep. They have to be 1.5 studs deep if I want to get the scale right.

Cheers.

Changed the barrel to match the ones on the T30, T30E1, and T34 HTs. Should reduce the price of these two models by $21.

Yeah, I do a combo of new and used parts and only US storefronts because I ain't dealing with international shipping. Even with only US shipping, my T71 Detroit Arsenal LT was $25 more due to just shipping. The actual parts for the tank was only about $55 which isn't too bad for 500 odd pieces.

 

What kind of diorama are you intending to make with this dwarven siege tanks?

HISTORY:
Wanting greater firepower in American tanks, the Ordnance Department in early 1945 looked to converting a 120mm antiaircraft gun into an anti-armor capability. 120mm Gun T53 and had a muzzle velocity of 3150ft/s with a 50lb solid shot and 4100ft/s with HVAP (Hypervelocity Armor Piercing). 17 May 1945, OCM 27662 recommended that two of the T30 Heavy Tanks be armed with a 120mm gun and re-designated as Heavy Tank T34. This action was approved on 31 May [1945].

The T29, T30, and T34 heavy tanks were all going to be equipped with a Ford GAC engine, but after V-J Day the T30 HT was going to test the Continental AV-1790 engine. 7 November 1946, OCM 31202 recommended the T34 pilots should also use the Continental engine instead of a modified Allison V-1710 aircraft engine.

The T34 Heavy Tank's T53 120mm Gun required 4 inches of solid steel to be welded onto the rear of the turret as a counterweight. The T53 120mm Gun used two-piece ammunition and the total round weighed 100lb. Each piece weighed 50lb and required two loaders.

Testing of the T34 Heavy Tank occurred both at Aberdeen Proving Ground and Fort Knox that test firing caused dangerous amounts of smoke and carbon monoxide within the turret. Flarebacks also hospitalized at least two men at Fort Knox and several others lost their eyebrows and hair there and at Aberdeen. The flarebacks were caused by unburnt powder gases in the gun tube being sucked back into the turret due to the cartridge case being ejected from the cannon breech. The flash resulted from the hot gases mixing with the oxygen in the turret. To prevent flarebacks, a bore scavenging system was installed and this caused bore excavators to become standard on American tank guns.

SPECIFICATIONS:
Length: 463.5in
Width: 149.7in
Height: 126.9in
Crew: 6 (Commander, Gunner, Loader x2, Driver, Co-Driver)
Weight: 143,600lb
Armor: 0.5in-7.0in
Primary Armament: T53 120mm Gun (34 rounds) ((5rpm))
Coaxial Armament: M2 0.50in HMG x2 (2090 rounds)
Bow Armament: M1919A4 0.3in MG (2500 rounds)
Engine: Continental AV-1790-3, V-12, Air-cooled
Max Speed: 22mph
Range: 100 miles

This looks much better than the previous iteration. I really like the sloped front, especially the upper front plate (UFP).

 

$172.47 for only 419 pieces is pretty steep my guy. You've got expensive tastes, haha! Are you buying only new parts?

 

Out of all the tanks I've done and bothered to check prices, only 1 is more expensive than yours, but it has 3x more pieces. Although I should go back and check to see how expensive they are now.

HISTORY:
OCM 31668 on 24 July 1947 authorized the installation of an experimental cartridge case ejecting mechanism and a drive mechanism for indexing the mount for loading and returning the weapon to its previous location in a T30 Heavy Tank. These additions caused this T30 HT to be re-designated as the T30E1 Heavy Tank. The mechanisms installed took up space where the Tank Commander would normally sit and thus the cupola and his seat was raised above the loading tray which was in between in his legs. A hatch was installed in the turret rear for spent cartridge cases to be ejected.
