Now on another note I have changed the ground texture. I wasent to pleased with the first. I think this one is better.

The most jaw-dropping feature for me just has to be how you got the chains to hang realistically.

Well, I didnt fint it especially difficult to make any part of it actually, but the most time consuming part was the small details between the armour. Also the tread system took some time to finish.

Did you bevel the edges on the armor plates? I have been having difficulties with the bevel tool, so I end up just making the texture map have "tears" around where the edges go.

Yes, I used surface and bevel. I found that to be the easyest to do. I also spent some time making all the different surfaces as planar as possible without loosing the overall shape.

Thor,
That tank is incredible...
I am amazed..

How many hours do you have in a model like that?
Is a lot of it, just duplicating?

Also, did you ever get that gun model I sent you?
Let me know.
thanks
Greg

Not to be a nuisance or anything, but the front and rear wheels inside the treads should have some sort of spikes to connect the wheels to the treads. Like in this photo of an M24.
