Hi all,

First crack at this and I was struggling for inspiration. 
I like tanks... so flight and tanks means one thing: Flying Tank.

I mostly like WW2 and Post WW2 and a lot of my stuff is Soviet. 
It also happens that the Soviets managed to make a tank fly.
The Antonov A-40: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonov_A-40


So first plan is build the tank, then cut/sand wings from styrofoam and bodge the two together... Cheesy
That is the plan anyway!  Sounds simple when put like that Shocked

I've got a fair bit of experience building tanks but my plane building is limited!

I hope to get my drawings sorted tonight - Can I start yet?

TTFN

Make sure you make a separate master of the T-60. I don't think anyone makes one in 1/56 at the moment.

Cracking idea btw.

Cheers all,

I'll gather materials instead.  OK that's done... 
Looks like I'll have to finish the Centurion first afterall... Grin 

Will see about the T-60 as a master. 
It means a different construction if I go that route and it's a bit more work.  (Seperate tracks usually)

Plan is standard build for the hull - laser cut wheels and tracks, plasticard hull, fiddly bits for detail.
The wings will be styrofoam hot wired then sanded and covered - not confident about that bit though!

I suspect the hull will need filling with lead to keep it on it's tracks...

It's not that big, the wing span is in the order of 320mm at 1/56

I was going to make the wings out of foam...  but now I might make a built up wing with ribs and spars and so on...  might be a step too far though....!

As a fair few of us can turn out a commercial model.We might as well make this fun. Not just 'job and knock.'
