    This is my T26E3 Super Pershing. It is made of 1/2" ply wood, it is dadoed then nailed and glued together. Shown here fully RC but it needs a turret that will be made of fiber glass.

    Here you can see what needs to be finished: the turret, back mud skirts, front and back panels, and the main gun.

    Here you can see the beginings to the main gun, it is basically a semi-auto spud gun. There will be a 1.5" PVC chamber about 6-4" long, sprinkler valve and a co2 with a regulator so the PVC chamber will be filled with XX PSI after each shot.

    This is the gun mantlet made of 3" ABS and it uses a 1/4" dowel to pivot.

    Here are my drive motors, they were used in a kiddie car that someone was throwing away becouse the kid out grew it and the switch did not work.

    These are my servo-tipped switches, ummm I mean high-tech speed controlers, two for drive and one for turret.

    This is my turret drive motor that is a Black&Decker screw driver assembly. There is a rubber wheel on the end that rides along the rim of the lazy susan.

    This is my idler set up that is a piece of wood with a hole down the middle and a notch in the end for the axle.

    Here is one of my drive wheels that uses rubber bungee cords to stick to the tracks.
