T-72 Main Battle Tank
This is a Russian made T-72 tank. I designed it using mlcad because of a lack of tan/brown parts. It is as close to minifig scale as I could get.
About this creation




The external fuel tanks, doesn't seem like such a hot idea to me though.



Finally, a way to capture that circular turret those Russian tank designers seemed to love so much.





The driver.




: Please check back soon for a version 2, i'm trying to work in a better technique for connecting the gun barrel to the turret

the tank is epic, but even more so for me is the DShK! How did you make it? Could you post extra pictures of just the gun?

Very cool and detailed, nice work overall. Perhaps if you could find a large rocket nose cone in the correct colour you could make the base of the main gun barrel look more sleek

If youre wondering why tanks have fuel tanks attatched to the sides and rears, its because if the projektile hits these it wont harm the the tank that much. By the way G.r.e.a.t Work!

That looks great. I love the turret design. I hope you do mind if I use it on a BMP-2, if I mak one. Well back to the tank. It looks like one of the most accurate soviet tank I've seen.

The turret shape is wonderful! I love the look you got. Very Soviet-esque. Not alot of people can pull that off.

Looks great. Imo, the studs gives it more a tank-feeling. Studless isn't always good.

I just saw that your driver doesn't even have a head! If we don't count this, it's near perfection.

Very good work. You beat me to the circular turret technique. What I had in mind, and what I think you've done, is use one of those pipe pieces to create the perimeter and then clip on the pieces to it. You've got the dimensions right for minifig scale too. The ERA blocks are a nice touch. The only room for improvement is you're missing the fording snorkel in the stowed position along the side of the turret. The long-range fuel tanks are a nice touch. Also, your photography needs to improve to showcase this excellent MOC. In your next version, bring a lamp closer to where you want to display it so your camera has an easier time of focusing without a flash.

I can't say anything else: it's perfect! Some people on MOCpages tried to get that turret shape right and you succeeded. I hope you'll post instructions.
