I like the fox, I'll have to check and see if it includes the STL files for the tires and rims. Those could be very useful in a variety of projects. As for the turretless tank, is it just me, or is there something about a turretless tank that just doesn't seem quite right? Like something is missing? I know, it's the turret! Where the hell is it?

I agree Gary - No turret makes for very limited combat effectiveness. But still high on the cool factor - maybe because of the desperate nature of their purpose.

The Swedish S tank was probably the pinnacle of design perfection for the turret less design.

Not forgetting the little Hetzer. At least with it you're not hanging "knees in the breeze" like the others.

M4A3E8. Printed from RC_3D_Tanks on Cults3D. Another fun build. A bit more complicated than the M18. The fit of the parts was not as well refined, (it is an earlier design). It runs with a Heng Long 6.1s with servo recoil and elevation. Heng Long Pershing tracks will fit with HL sprockets.

I'm waiting on track pins for the Hellcat I printed and the weather to stay a little warmer so that I can finish printing the detail parts with my resin printer. I bought like (40) ML49mm gearboxes for the tanks I'm printing...it's addicting.

Yes it is I'm having fun just printing the parts the only problem I've had is printing part of the rear deck of the M60 so I'm thinking of resin printing it pain in the butt to pull of the supports around the grill area .

I'll bet if you scale that up to 1/6 scale it will be big enough to hide a camera in there. I thought about that for my hetzer, Mount the unit directly underneath the barrel, put the camera in what was actually the IR light, and in what was actually the camera, put a laser pointer. That wouldn't be perfect, but it would give you a very good idea of where your paintballs will go if the barrel is pointed straight ahead.

Crius Don't even have to scale it up... I made an FPV Camera Housing for my Tamiya #56020 Leopard 2A7+ barely larger than the stock 2A6 Commanders Panoramic Sight ( More Information on that... ):


For my 3D Printed E-100 I got myself a TBS Camera Module with a size of less than 6x6x5mm to fit into that Tanks Panoramic Sight.

And while you barely can't fit it into the IR-Receiver Tube of the FG1250 the Spotlight would be fair Game ( More information on that... ):

Though I haven't considered doing that 😁

That's pretty much exactly what I had in mind, the camera in the IR lamp and the IR LED in the camera. But if I were to use this for a 1/6 scale tank I would definitely scale it up. It looks good, but I think it would look too small on a 1/6 scale tank.
