This is a working full size model of a bren gun carrier.
<p>Did you make a full step-by-step instructable? Very cool!</p>
<p>I am afraid i just took a few pics as i went along..I had a big problem with the tracks trying to come off when i turned and this is finally being sorted out after all these years.It has been parked up since it was finished.</p>
50 cal added and desert rat logo.
If you need any fine-tuning help, Give this guy's videos a watching, and maybe an e-mail.<br><br>I'm sure he'd be excited to see your work.<br><br>http://www.youtube.com/user/Gizmo4t<br><br><br>Looks like it will be great fun driving around the neighborhood... at least BEFORE you attach the full size machine gun.

i was a tanker the army, in the 80's, and this is just too cool! i was on a m60a3. i can't afford one of those, but this, mebbe. what did you use for the tracks? i was thinking about something like this using torsion arm axles to make a modified christy suspension.
The tracks are industrial chain with a 5&quot; pitch and a plate 8&quot; by 4&quot; was welded over each link using an angle iron bracket on each side.The gears are sheet metal spaced 5/8&quot; apart, cut to match the chain.
this is amazing! i just wish i had one of these... :(<br>
Cammo paint and awaiting finishing touches.
If anyone is interested in building one of these i will take more close up pics and do an assembley write up.
I have added more construction pics but i did not take very many during construction.
Working? It <em>drives</em>?<br><br>
It has a datsun 1800 engine, gearbox and diff.We are having teething prblems with one track at present but should be fully running in 2 weeks.Instead of a bren gun we are fitting a full size model 50cal browning.

This is awesome. I would love to see a step by step also. Fantastic project!
