Sooo... hey there!

 

With BFVA2020 more than likely cancelled, I decided it was time to start this lovely little project. Because of how scatter brained I am, I decided to do this with Stud.io on Bricklink. Surprisingly, it works pretty darn well.

Here's what I have so far for the main cannon. I've been taking inspiration from a couple of sources:

I'm trying to give it a nice war like feel, but not leave it too blocky looking. One of my biggest concerns is not having it look too modern.

 

That aside, the barrel can move up ever so slightly for some elevation. A roll, telescope, ladder, and hatch were also added for additional details. And no, there will not be a minifig sized interior. There will be decals eventually, but that's going to be further out.

 

I'd love to hear any feedback, especially criticisms!

 

Hope you enjoyed!

Bread box and steam system have been built!

 

That just leaves the front of the tank. After that, I'll go into refining the build until it gets to where I want it. Seriously though, Stud.io on Bricklink is friggin' amazing!

Outstanding!  I love how beefy it looks already, and the way you're blending more modern designs with the fantasy aesthetic.

I'm really enjoying the progress you're making on this build! Really giving Warhammer's Steam Tank a run for its money with this design. I like how chunky it is.
