The completed drivechain.

A picture of the complete, painted lower Hull. I kind of like the way it looks.

The speed controllers I used are IFI Victor 885's. They are capable of handling up to 120 amps continuous draw, so they are more capable than anything I would ever need. They are hooked up to 100 amp fuses.

The turret is being constructed aout of cardboard for now because it is easier to cut accurate pieces from a pattern.

After the turret bottom was made out of wood, the top was modeled in 1/4 inch foam.

The complete foam turret placed on the tank for a photo op.

The beginnings of a wood turret! Its really looking good.

The tank in its current condition. (The lower hull is being painted, so these are just the top 2 pieces.) The radio I used is a DX6i 2.4 Ghz system by Spektrum.

A picture after the paint went on. The flat house paint was sprayed on using an auto airgun. THe turret is not painted because the angles are os hard to replicate and it is taking us a long time to cut each piece. It will be done soon.

In this photo the turret faces are finally done. It took FOREVER to cut and fit each piece exactly. I'm glad its over.
