You may have seen my lego tetrarch tank in the chess piece contest, the response was positive so I thought I'd share some of my Lego tanks. These are all designed and built by me (Lego themselves don't sell historical military kits) so I hope you like them!

These look great - I guess they are expensive to make?

It varies depending on the size of tank, how many of the parts I already have, etc but yes, quite expensive. Per tank, the cost of building is anything from £25 to £45, which when compared to the cost of similar sized lego kits isn't too bad.

Absolutely awesome! I would definitely love to have any one of those. You should sell them online or make instructional videos or something.:great:

Was it Brickmania per chance? Tbh I've never bought anything from them as although these are time consuming to produce, they're a hell of a lot cheaper than what non-official companies  sell and I get more satisfaction designing them myself. Also, they look as good (if not better) too!

I don't think so, the cheapest Sherman kit I've seen was still $170! But there must be a substantial number of people out there who would pay that (or more) just for one tank.

Great job on those tanks! Do you have a Mocpages or flickr account, because I believe I have seen your work before there.

I'll have to post some pictures of my Abrams :) .
