I'm having trouble importing this file into my Makerbot: it keeps saying that the .stl file is in an unsupported format. Is there any way to check if this is the file, or my printer?

Any way of making a hole in this to may be make it into a key chain or a car hanging accessory?

Yes. A drill.

I guess you'd need a laser resin printer to achieve that level of detail...

Very Nice, would you like to help me do some other projects?
tell me if you are interested and the cost do do the items.

I really like the tank. The chassis resembles that of the KV-1. What scale is the model?

This model made in real proportions, then was scaled in 1:48, but very much approximately.
