You tried just about the hardest model (in terms of number of roadwheels) -
perhaps a easier option would have been a Russian BT tank (4 per side), or
a Sherman.

Hahah :D
Being the kid I was I picked the coolest thing I had

I finished a few tanks though. Some amphibian Polish light tank I threw out (edit PZInz 130), a 4TP, and a T-34. The T-34 is the only one that had individual links for the tracks. It came out ok, but it needs some serious edge painting.

The other tank kits I currently have are a Japanese Chi-He, a PzKpfw III, and a monster 1:16 Leopard 2A4.
I was planning on getting a Sherman, but didn't get it this time.

Not a lot of progress, but here are some photos. In my excitement about cutting out parts, I mounted one of the fenders before I thought about it.... Might run into some issues with all the wheels.... I even knew I wanted to wait, but somehow, cutting it out and shaping it, the darn piece of paper forced me to mount it! I swear!

Forget the wheels, it looks good now!
Planning for the future is overrated :D

It's a really nice work.
I started making German tank long time ago but stopped it because I was overwhelmed by wheels and caterpillars.
I am looking forward to seeing your thread and want to finish mine refer to your build.

Been working steadily on this one, but not much to show.... Attached are pictures of the wheels. There was some discussion earlier in the thread about the piece count on tanks wheels. Here are the parts cut out and an assembled wheel:

The completed wheel looks a bit distorted in the one picture, but it really isn't... Didn't realize the other was out of fucus until I added it to the post! Whoops!

It may not look like much progress, but I have been steadily cutting.... Had a small issue that slowed me down, but I am hoping to get some real work done the next few days. Here are some pics of the turrent framing and the hull where it will mount (it will be able to swivel, sweet!):

Next is a wheel assembly (I'm posting these for you, Mike! Especially the second one! :D ):

And the final one dry fit on the hull:

BTW, for those of you who have yet to buy a model from Mike at GreMir, BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE ON THE WEB!

Keep it coming Chris, it is looking good. I'd love to see this one when it is finished, and since I don't think I'll ever build it, (like many others who have posted, all those little wheels with all those little parts scare me too much) I'm really counting on you!

I looked up " patience" in the dictionary, and I'm pretty sure it said " armor paper modelers"! lol
I whine if the part count is above 10. Looks like you exceeded that count with the wheel alone.
Excellent execution so far Chris!
