Last Crusade Tank Version III
It may be stupid to have made another one of these tanks...but I had an idea on how to make a few upgrades to my previous versions. The crazy thing is that I may yet make another for myself, incorporating a few of Dark_Horse's ideas from his super duper tank.
What ideas would I add? The main on was creating moveable sponson (side) guns. I did this by mimicking how the guns actually worked in the movie (the curved shape was achieved by using thin strips built up along a curved base, then wrapping this in super thin styrene to get a smooth exterior finish).
I used the same basic dimensions as my second tank, but engineered my own hinge for the turret hatch (I used twist ties on the last tank...very clunky and ineffective).
The overall profile came out a tad bit stubbier than I would have liked. The fourth version will no doubt be a bit more elongated if I ever get around to making it.
The Interior will probably look familiar, since it is very similar to what I made for the second tank (with a few tweaks here and there).
Some scale and fun pics:
Let me know what you think, and thanks for looking.
