Russian patent scissor tank

Im calling it a scissor tank as I have not a clue what the real name would be.

The idea behind it was making a low as possible tank, but if its low climbing over objects will be hard so half way there was a way to bend, this would lift up the back thanks to a sliding weight, I guess that it would then drive backwards over a object which is a bit weird. The tracks where made of canvas reinforced with steel wire, which saved me a lot of time cutting tracklinks, for now its done bit I do want to add more detail in the future, things like air intakes, exhausts are not shown on the drawing but needs to be added as well

thanks for watching and feel free to comment

Tracked Triumph part 2

Finished with the tracked Triumph, new tracks and wheels, steering cables and handlebar brake, added a exhaust which I did not see in the drawing, I'm still thinking of adding track teeth and teeth for the sprocket, they are not in the drawing but still needs to be there, but then again so small to do, ooh well maybe next week

John "what the hell where the thinking" Lee, is looking at it and standing next to it for scale and show a bit what most of you will also think.

(John Lee is a friend of mine, we used to go too school together and even back then he was scratching his head wen I was working on something and now he still does)
