The clip on gear covers help keep the grease from flying all over the insides of the tank.

Hey Dean, that seems a stock Henglong gear? Care to share the 3D file for the gear cover with us?

Actually, these gearboxes are custom reinforced ones with an extra gear reduction, the clip on covers will not fit standard HL boxes as the brass posts were moved around by the maker. Matomart support staff hooked me up with them.
I like the covers though, I will be making a set for my PZ III which I will post, it has standard boxes.

So it begins, started brushing on the paint. The 3D printed texture helps to hide all the brush strokes! Hope to have it back in one piece soon.

After several hours of swearing and carefull eyeballing, the prototype for my track tensioning is done.
This should help with the issue of throwing tracks while turning tightly. Id like to make this thing at least twice as reliable as the real ones were, im setting the bar low.

Hello! I have thrown it together to begin detailing it and figuring out the stickers, The green looks much better in person than on the phone image.

Hello everyone!
The T-35 is finished, and its done in less than a year!
It has been detailed (with some help) to the best of my abilities and is now mechanically reliable enough for me to be satisfied with.
Please see below some shots of the finished product. More shots and videos will be posted when I gather all the files for Thingiverse.
Let me know what you think!

Good job Dean. Not many people have designed and completed an entire 3D printed model, so you have joined a small club indeed. No one can say you chose an easy model to start with either!

Thank you Dean! This is really great that someone shares his complete build! (any chance on getting the STEP files?)

Sadly not, I didn't use that file type for anything.

No problem Dean, What 3D software did you use to design the Tank?
