SU-100Y - 1:25 scale

Hello friends.
This is my SU-100Y tank destroyer project.

Well, I had seen this tank in games like World of Tanks and Warthunder and of course internet photos from the Kubinka museum.
And I decided to make this tank in 1:25 scale and hope that it works until the model is finished.

And I also show the first images of the model under construction.
And I admit I have no idea yet how to make caterpillars. Does anyone have any suggestions.

Regards

An interesting vehicle.
You could take a look at some of the World of Paper Tanks models & copy their band tracks or try making links (lot of work but look great).
The wheels & tracks are not a generic SU type so you wouldn't be able to copy/upscale them if you want 100% accuracy.

Nice start, please keep us updated. It really depends if you want a one piece track or individual links. Tracks come in various difficulties and it's up to you to pick what suits your design.

Hello again.
After a long break, I managed to work again on the SU-100Y.
I had a lot to do and little time to dedicate to the model, but now besides that tank I started another model, the E-25.

There are few things I have done, but it is already a small advance in the model.

@hirondelle, on tracks, I saw that the T-100 tank is the same model, and Modelik made this model, so I looked and found some assemblies where I am slowly trying to make the tracks.

The tracks has been my biggest difficulty, as I have no idea how to calculate. I just know that for a start I will make unique strips and I will only add some details to give the desired 3D effect.

What I did at the time was the cannon, which was an advance.
The fenders are ready, all that remains is to add them to the tank.
And I also made small details like the tower door and the rear engine cover.

For what I did I am enjoying the results
