This is a T-62 recreated in 1/35 scale; capturing the real tank in static display and in motion. Much attention was paid to ensuring realistic movement while not sacrifacing any of the external detail. The hull sways when starting and stopping as if under great weight; the engine exhaust bellows and belches white smoke; and the whole thing moves with inertia.

Very cool! Must need to know how to apply it to other RC vehicles!

Very nice work. Impressive. How did you incorporate all your wanted details, like the hull swaying? What tracks did you use? Did you have to modify the sprockets or any of the suspension to get it to work properly?

Again, excellent job. Nicest, smoothest 1/35 tank build I have ever seen.

What are for that parts on the front glacis? I think you couldn't spare them, anyway If they weren't there, your tank would look simply perfect. That's just an observation anyway. That's a really Impressive and outstanding job!
Congrats indeed!
