Did this for someone in need of a tank. STL isn't perfect but this is what it turned out to be.

Added bolts lol, sorry guys, it was a quick job :) Needed adjustments here and there for wished end result.

Spray paint the bolts in a different color while leaving them on the tape. Second glue will give weird white oxidation effect if sticked on after. Can wisk it away.

Used car spray paint. I made the gamble to see if it would stick without a bonding agent and it does so far :)

I tried to print it a couple of times with my SLA printer but I get errors mentioning integrity issues with the model. Any ideas how I can fix it?


A late reply from my side. I've been absent due to work.
Next week I'll have a nice version of the Mark IV tank online.
Specifically adjusted for FFF/FFM/FDM.

What scale did you print yours off in? I noticed someone recently made this and it didn't turn out as clean as the one in the photos shown here.

The finishing is amazing. Very nice model!

Thanks added a photo of how it would look with a copperish like effect.
The thank has lost its original colors :D

If you do this, spray it copper completely, while wet mist different color effects over it, and don't touch it once it looks close to what you like, often one step more leads to coppering it all over again. Colors used, copper, fluor orange and pink, light brown, reddish dark brown, and matte black misted at last.

For the original dark color: Spray paint completely black, while wet, mist dark anthracite over it, prefereable angled at the edges from a distance. Tracks black gloss in this case, the rust comes from orange paint (the ones they use at construction sites to coat wood, here they call it Menie) that one lets dryout almost completely stick your brush in it and start scratching it on with various pressures,1st you do light pressure lighten up the area a bit and more pressure i nthe center.

Red and white was painted over the other color by a brush, probably after 3 hours dry time, party dissolving the previous (dark) color, this gives the older looking effect.

Thanks for the tutorial, you're awesome :-)
