Okay, managed to get my tank kit to work in one piece after a 12 mile bike ride to work...lol  Here it is before I start putting it together. I am planning on using the items obtained from nature surrounding the building that I work at. Sure hope  can get this together by the end of the week. Good Luck everybody!

 

 

Those boxes are a heck of a lot more durable than they look, that's for damn sure.

Quite surprised some of them survive going between about 6 buses, a good amount of walking and a few taxis.

Well I'm 95% finished with the tank build up. Wish I had the steadiness of hands like I did 30 years ago..lol Those tiny parts are a.....*** edited *** ( Self Moderated) to glue on..lol

I have my back drop already printed out and waiting to create my Diorama; after I pry my fingers apart...:)

OOPS!, almost forgot about my gamer tag needed to be on the pictures. So I used windows snipping tool to add it, hope that works.

The worst thing about model making... glue

I'd argue the worst part of model making is not the glue and getting poly-cement covered all over your hands.

But the small pieces, like the wheels and all.

 

Or when the model kit has you build the tracks separately.

 

Glue and Paint on your hand is just 'Go wash under a tap', you get one of those little tiny 1/76 wheels or MG's the size of a 5p or bit o' hair, you'll have some damn good times trying to keep that in your sight.

Changed URL links to images for ye.

It could just be my chromebook, which I can say so much 'great' words for, but it does seem to cut off a bit of it after changing the URL to links so if anyone else sees similar it is worth getting the full image up in another tab.

 

There's been a lot of Lego entries.

I'm actually having fun building the diorama using elements from the surrounding nature. It's coming along pretty fast. Just have to put some finishing touches on the tank ( melting the tracks together, attaching the cockpit). Should have this ready by Wednesday evening/ early Thursday.

A tank has a cockpit?

Sure y'don't mean the Cupola, where the Commander goes to stare through little slits now and then.

Actually was thinking about other things on my mind when I posted it...lol  Although I have noticed that NASA uses this term as well.

The Cupola is an ESA-built observatory module of the International Space Station (ISS). Its seven windows are used to conduct experiments, dockings and observations of Earth. It was launched aboard Space Shuttle mission STS-130 on 8 February 2010 and attached to the Tranquility (Node 3) module. With the Cupola attached, ISS assembly reached 85 percent completion. The Cupola's 80 cm (31 in) window is the largest ever used in space.[1]

It was amusing to see that at what would technically be Wednesday, meaning it'd end like halfway through Thursday.

 

Also I'd question why the Tiger I is pointed away from the Cromwells, but then agaiiin the Tiger I players I met last night were 'special' like that as well.

Looks fun, but not really worth the effort to win

Equality is a myth.

In order to ensure rights for one, you must destroy rights of another.
 

Keep calm and wait for Naval Action.

The Cromwells flanked the Tiger, before he had time to turn around.

I think I like my version better, that he's just the typical WoT player who can't see a tank who's 30m in front of him.
