  2. Must be a successor, (download the plane, then use the cockpit).

  3. Not less than 225 parts and not more than 850 parts.

  4. Tracks2 mod is allowed.

  5. Deadline is the 30th of November.

Tanks.gg is a good website to check out tank models. Visit it as it will really help you keep things realistic and detailed: such as complicated russian turrets.

    Takes up to a month for me to pump out a tank, and I've recently started work on a light cruiser.

    @gispet nice can't wait! hope you build something great and detailed. I really recommend you try to hit the 225 part minimum limit with details. At least try to decal so that you can beat one of the other entries.

    @Abakan12 no... Unfortunately, this is a challenge for tanks that were around 1975 like the tanks in the example pics. No modern systems are allowed, though....
