World of Tanks (http://worldoftanks.eu) Aniversary Build a Tank Model contest entry

EDIT: In my haste to post the video in time I forgot to include a clip of the tank performing a peek-a-boo. :)

EDIT 2: Silly me, scale is 1:16.3 of course :)

WW2 Soviet KV-2 tank model built entirely out of Lego bricks (and rubber bands). This is a fairly notorious tank within the World of Tanks game since it can wipe out anything up to its tier and seriously damage higher tiers.

Lego does not make many army-coloured bricks, that's why I've chosen black and different gray variations. I've used a blueprint I found online to roughly convert the actual dimensions into Lego brick sizes and they are mostly quite accurate, except for the turret back being too long because of the battery box inside and also the turret should be more narrow in the back which I wasn't able to achieve with the bricks available. The chassis and gun mechanism consists of technic beams and is of studless construction while the armor and turret are regular studded bricks. Originally I wanted to make the gun depress and elevate but the mechanism is simply to big to be able to move up and down inside the turret.

I intend to post another more Lego-centric video (feel free to subscribe) as soon as I recover from the sleepless nights that building this model has caused me. ;)
