Those are the way they I needed them to get a good print. Please feel free to modify it to your liking.

So I didn't download that loonanrusp tank, but found it was missing the howitzer size gun I see on yours in the picture - any thoughts where I might find that?

One small criticism, the ear rafts in the tracks are too thick - a 0.3mm height would have been better - less cleanup.

Instructions

Let's try this again..... Nothing special. Print and play as you like! All printable components are in the *.zip. Completed *.stl's are just shown as an example of assembly.

It was pointed out that the ballistic sponson weapon wasn't scaled properly! It was a weapon for ants! *.zip has been revised so you can print it at it's intended size.

The model looks great, I have been considering buying a solidoodle, and I if I ever buy it and print Ill upload pictures.

Btw, the models in your picture, what printer, plastic, and resolution was used?

gpvillamil on Jan 22, 2013 said:

BTW you can make the sponson weapons fully movable with a simple mod:

Using a 5/64" drill, drill through the middle of the weapon hinge. Using the same bit drill a hole through the bottom of the sponson, at the pivot point, all the way through and part way through the top.

Place the weapon, and then thread a bit of 1.7mm filament through the hole in the bottom of the sponson, through the weapon, and into the hole in the top of the sponson (this part might need a bit of wiggling around, since you can't see the hole).

A dab of glue in the bottom hole to hold it in place, and you're all set. This is so easy to do that now I regret not having done it to all my other copies of the model!
