 Has anyone built this before?
THe reason I am asking is that I am getting lured to build this. I have aldredy started drawing plans for it (I know I must start with a tested and experimented model) This is going to the PUREST SCRATCH BUILT MODEL I have ever built. Probably i won't enen buy any parts for it. Not even a radio I assume. My parents not buying me electonics is not going to stop me from making models. This wont be  RC but it will be controlled using a wire.

Very Excited will strat building tomorrow. This will also be my first entry for 5th Anniversary Sweepstakes.

Getting into the design, I will use Cardboard of various thickness (yet to search the store room to find what I can use).  I haven't
decided what i will use for Chassis. Any suggestion?

NO ARMOUR on this model.
It will feature a wired control console (obviously DIY). If someone is kind enough they can give me a broken transmitter whose radio is not working. perhaps i can use it. Otherwise I will have to sacrifice my gaming console ;(

This model will have 4 channels (4 controls so to say)

1) Forward-Backward
2) Left-Right
3) Muzzle up-down
4) Muzzle left-right

Muzzle will be crafted from a PVC pipe scrap piece.

Nice concept, definitely you should try this...  Clap

you can try ladder chassis design made of wood/ply, that should give you a lot of space around n freedom of any upgrade.
power and steering could be dual motor for left right-should work better, or single pot with a special diff. or partial braking
u can also use bike/car cam chain n gears for tracks, smaller than a bicycle

good luck mate, n keep postin the pics

I am using small 500ml bottles to make the pulleys to move the tracks. I hope they work. If they don' work out well, I'll turn to cardboard to make the pulleys. For the track I think rubber tube or scooter tyre should do. Whats your opinion?

How to make the axles?  Bang Head  Huh?  Head Scratching

Edit: Just tried the bottles. The bottles don't work properly as wheels. WHat should I use now?

I am using cycle spokes for axle. Still not figured out the tracks. most websites show very tiresome methods. I have not seen some shops selling tracks yet.
