One of many projects I have kicking around is a tank heavy IG force. Here are a few conversions I came up with using some Tehnolog kits.

First up, my troop transport:

Main battle tank:

Light tank:

The pics aren't working, I tried viewing the image directly and it asked me to sign into Microsoft Onedrive so I think you may need to change something.

I think you can open them in a new tab now, still haven't figured out how to get them to show in the post.

OK, I think I got. It's been ages since I've last posted an image, only recently got back into the the hobby after a long hiatus.

Is the battletank printed on a 3D printer?

I am a dyslectic, so bear with me.

Nah, it's built from a Bronekorpus Battle Tank kit made by a Russian company called Tehnolog, makers of the Robogear line. I think you can still find them on eBay. I started with the same kit for both the transport and the tank, with different bits cut, moved and modified plus a few bits of sheet styrene and tube.

The light tank was made from a Robogear Varan kit, doctored up with a good bit of sheet styrene. I tried to re-purpose as much as I could of what came with the kit. The dual auto cannons from a Leman Russ were the only outside bit that I used on that project. It's a bit on the small side, about the size of a Taurox but 3/4" shorter in length.

Here is a side by side with a stock built Varan:

Here is one next to a Russ and what I'm using as a guardsman (scaled a smidge taller than a marine) and one next to a marine.

Nice work - I would enjoy trying to blow them apart!
