I found SMA at Ampseast and know some of the guys so It looks like this is my new posting site.
Inclosed are a few pics of my new build. It's part walker and part landship, and a little Brittish
Independence tank. Comments welcome.

Hey texaslobo,
I'm a tool & die maker with 26 years in the field. Everything on this model is scratch built so far.
I am going to try to make just about all of it myself.

Oh this looks like fun there Markus!! Bring it on!! Might want to make these removable and have them cast in resin afterwards...keeping the alloy version for yourself! The APMSEast show was awesome!! Something like would have been a great addition to the show!! At the rate you are going, I will be looking for this at next years show!!! :)

Very cool! I wish I could mill parts in metal. What size or scale will this be, by the time you've finished?

And welcome to SMA!

I'm glad that you folks seem to like it. Here are a few more pics to hold your interest.
I've been thinking about the paint and am of two minds about it. The first is a three tone
camo outlined in black , very WWIish. The other would be to paint it to look like cast iron.
Your comments and suggestions are always welcome.

This pretty insane, in a real good way.

Making a few good molds for those parts and turning this into a kit would be awesome, I know a few guys who buy this. Like me for starters. lol
