I'd like to see a WW2 German Panzer IV or V tank, that would be really cool!

I'm currently working on building a T-62, as I only have 10 appropriate "wheels" for it.

I'll give the panzer's a go sometime in the new year :).

Any chance of a peek under her skirt? I'm contemplating an Abrams and had already pegged those bogies. I'm interested in the construction of the drive wheel and front return wheel in particular.

Thanks! To be sure, you're using a pair of half beams attached to a 2 hole 1x2?

I'm starting to reach the end of my Leopard 2 builds, just have the Kodiak ARV to complete. What tank do you guys and gals want to see next?
