Greetings my fellow SSLFer's. I need a little help with something. With my new kindled obsession with the US WWII M7 Medium Tank, I decided to make one out of LEGO. I'll be needing some help with the design and such, because I'm not the greatest with LEGO. I'll be using my BrickMania M24 Chaffee LT as inspiration and tips, but I think I'll need more from you, my fellow SSLFer's. Anyways, I've just begun and will periodically make updates as I progress or seek help. Now, let's begin the madness.

Here are my references.

Progress update.

P6DMngf.png

Front hull is sort of done, getting the suspension done. Took me a half hour to find a piece and now I am again looking for another. I would start another part of the vehicle, BUT I need to know how tall the suspension is to continue, because I don't want to redo an entire section due to my lack of searching.

Found it/Progress update.

Had to redo and move a ton of stuff, so that wasted time, that was needed to be wasted/fixed. So, the suspension is coming along nicely. Probably the most difficult part of the tank anyways.

Another update, sorry for the lack of them, been busy and thinking on how I'll make this darn thing.

Not much, but I had to redo the positioning. Think the current slope is like the real one? I could do 1x4 for a steeper slope or 1x2 for a not as steep slope. What do you guys think?

Did the front hull, it even has the little hull MG and did a very crappy take of the suspension. If only I had the actual pieces, it'd make this so much easier.

Update, it's almost done!
vxoyh9g.png
Hull almost complete.
I052C5i.png
Very close to being finished.

Turret base attached and hull complete.
raKgx2a.png
New turret base, redid a lot of the hull, especially near the turret itself.

Doing the top turret, man, I spent a good two hours getting the turret to this and experimenting with many different things to get the sloping correct.

More has come!
AOj8qXJ.png
Side turret done.
iCuJeha.png
The black is supposed to be a gunport.
PNSj6Od.png
Back top turret figured out, angle is good, and now to cover the remaining backside.

The final product (for now). Changed the suspension and filled in the back turret. Also flattened some other places.
