1/4 Tiger tank custom made work in progress

Post by Big Tanks of America » Mon Oct 24, 2011 10:22 am

Hi ,

here we want to post the work in progress for a Tiger 1 early 1/4 scale that is going to be build for one of our customers.
After some considerations and talking over the project we agreed to build this HUGE tank and the customer accepted our offer.
Time to build this tank can be up to 12 months.

Before ANYTHING can be done the tank needs to be designed and constructed with the help of modern computers and software. All needs to fit and made to scale.
So any data we had from our 1/6 or other scale Tigers could not be used. We have to start from scratch in that scale.

Pictures of CAD parts to follow.
Thanks
