Spidertank: Turret by Destro2k Spidertank: Turret by Destro2k
oh yeah, on wednesday, i started with the Spidertank from :icongriphinator: Griphinator
and this time it works really great
i finished the turret base (the hardest part on the model) yesterday :icontardboogieplz:

here you can see the building steps

pic1
the allready build base and side pieces
the first version had the taps on the center part and the idea was to build outside
...bad idea :aww:
doesn't work at all
this time, i changed the taps in that way, that the thin part got the taps on both sides
works perfect :dance:

pic2+3
the first big tap glued to the center piece

pic4+5
i closed the front first
and added the distance piece before i closed it, to prevent that the model is ripped apart
then i closed it from the other side

pic6
just to show you why i started this thing new
the 100% folding line version (right) looks just aweful
the new version is a little bit smaller, but it has only advantages

after i noticed that i can change the size of the model itself, in the pepakura designer, without starting the unfold all over again (yes, finally realized it only now, that and how it works ^^; )
i changed the size step by step and managed it to save 4 pages :aww:

i also build the turret with some little tricks this time
the single barrel is based on three pieces
first i build the cylinders (ore hexagons) glued them on a blank piece of paper and cut the rest away

the three thin cylinders are too thin for taps, but thin enough to assemble them without
so it was no problem

pic7
done

here again the original model to compare

thanks for sharing a nice information about paperkrafting softwares :D
it is really handy, cuz i usually made the design manually and often screw up in the precision...

Wow, pretty awesome work so far! Keep it up, i'm eager to see the finished model!
If you like to, I'd happily provide you with another mechanic model (once i make another one that is ;D), especially after seeing this.
Really, this is impressive!^^
