Hello Strato, I have experimented with the vapor bath on other projects it does look nice but also has the effect of rounding edges, so in the case of all the tiny details here I mostly avoided it.

Yea that'd be detrimental to the armored look. Hmm. Maybe tape up the hard edges you want to keep with putty, tape, or liquid painters tape Smile

This project is VERY impressive. I'd order one from you.

I could not put a price on the time and patience this thing has cost me. But I could make another easier with all I have learned Smile

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.

The part is fairly big, the springs uncompressed are about 5cm long, so by the time they are in the installed position there is a good amount of force. If they dont I can compress them more or double them up. I bough a big bag of assorted springs from princess auto, and was much more excited about it than I should have been.

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.

I would have loved to see the installation of that track tensioner.

You have far more patience that I do Smile

Have to get your IGN then Renesis!
As mentioned elsewhere War Thunder was very influential in this build, both by exposing me to the vehicle and as the reference material I used heavily.

Hello everyone! 
The T-35 is finished, and its done in less than a year! Very Happy
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!
