I have bought some of his designs. They are configured to use the airsoft mechanism and no barrel recoil as the barrels are fixed in place to mate up to the airsoft gun. I will be printing some of them, but modding them to have barrel recoil and no airsoft. The I was going to start with the Oplot, but I may print the E100 first. The designs aren't totally accurate which is why the E100 is a great choice. You can use some creative license with it since it was never produced.

Someone in the audience vigorously coughing... Panzerkampfwagen E-100 - Wikipedia 😑

Had a quick look at the models and... I'm still recovering from some of the questionable design choices and print orientations on a lot of parts... I guess having some Tank is better than having none but man.
Also, the 3D printer that spat out those parts 😱 could really use some more tuning 🧑‍🔧🧰

Personally, I'd favor the use of somewhat to scale accurate Hardware like Nuts and Bolts for such a Project instead of 3D printing them as part of the Model - Especially when on an FDM 3D Printer
Stuff like that can make such models really pop. At least that's what I'm going for with mine and where not possible I'll be using an SLA 3D Printer instead.

LOL...cough all you want...a partial prototype chassis does not an E100 make... I agree about the bolt detail. I would rather add it in myself rather than print it.

I took the plunge and got the new Ender 3 S1 Pro 3D Printer doing a test print as I type I already have a Ender 3 that I'm upgrading the heck out of it will be adding a 400mm x 400mm extender kit to it next .
Will try printing 1 of these tanks wondering if the T-64BM Bulat Tank would fit on a T72 lower hull the hull looks the same .
Thanks
Jimmy

Is there a printer that would produce a 1/16 Tiger 1 Tank Turret , Body and Hull in detail that is both affordable and available ?

You will have to look at the size need for the stl file to see if it will need a printer bed size of 300mm x 300mm or bigger or if it will print on a 220mm x 220mm printer bed .
Thanks

The creality cr-10 S5 should be able to print any 1/16 tank you can come up with. Not sure what they're going for right now but I know they have come down considerably in the last couple of years. I've seen a lot of guys buy the smaller enders and six months later they're buying another printer because it's not big enough. I think you should just start with the big one and get it over with.

Please, show us some pics of your set up when you get the chance! How much room does it need and how long during the day are parts going to take?

Exclamation A thought on 3D printing times...

Seeing Katyusha on top of the tank in one of the pictures sure gave a moment of pause 😁

3D printing times are highly suspect to factors such as Layer Height, Print Speed, Acceleration, and SquareCornerVelocity ( aka Jerk ) with the former two also needing a proper foundation of a Nozzle/Heater Combo capable of supporting the Volumetric Flow required to not ending up being the bottleneck. Things my Mendel Style Prusa i3 MK3S would have printed in 2h my CoreXY Voron 2.4 now does in between 30-40min - If you want to go fast then CoreXY 3D Printers is the way to go and ideally also an enclosed one ( like the entire DIY Voron Lineup ) allowing the use of materials like ASA ( a less P.i.t.A. form of ABS super prone to warping and other issues ) which is generally more practical for both the speeds and later on also the postprocessing than materials like PLA, PETG, etc... would be.
