Takom T29E3

  • move
Built this T29E3 beastie for the recent TAKOM Campaign link.

As can be seen, I added an interior to both the hull and turret to take advantage of those lovely big hatches, using a mix of traditional plastic scratching and 3D-printed stuff I designed and printed on Shapeways. The Campaign thread has the gory details, but the key findings were the need for an extra track link on the right-hand track, microscopic toolbox handles, and a covered mantlet that takes some arm-wrestling to make fit. The only markings are WoT gaming fantasies, and as I painted mine to be the sole evaluation example in OD I was stuck.

About Tom Cromwell (barkingdigger)
FROM: ENGLAND - EAST ANGLIA, UNITED KINGDOM

A Yank living overseas on a long-term basis, I've been building tanks since the early '70s. I relish the challenges of older kits (remember when Tamiya was "new"?...) because I love to scratch-build.

Splendid work, Tom! Your Shapeway creation - salute! All those hatches, yes they just beg for detail inside.

Great job! It sure puts my T29E3 to shame!

Wow. I love the interior details added; a large tank like this just begs for all the interior included.

Impressive-looking tank, the actual must have really been something.
