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.

If you need any fine-tuning help, Give this guy's videos a watching, and maybe an e-mail.

I'm sure he'd be excited to see your work.

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" pitch and a plate 8" by 4" was welded over each link using an angle iron bracket on each side.The gears are sheet metal spaced 5/8" apart, cut to match the chain.

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 drives?

88lover (author)Kiteman2011-11-01

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.
