I was determined to spend more time at the Imperial War Museums Land warfare hall during my last visit to Duxford. The main reason was to catch both early and late examples of the museums Luftpanzers resplendent is their film paint (complete with scuffs and scrapes) for the up and coming Wolfgang Petersen film: Panzer.
Both Luftpanzers modeled in Modo

Bashed about in PS
(Perhaps a better render of the Jag2 might have been a good idea – ah well, too late now all done!)
Without computer assisted fine manipulation, Im sure it could be easy to overcorrect, and have the whole tank spin out of controll.
This is with the assumption that the other tank has a turret. And Im guessing that the layout of its lift.. fins?... make for a more linear typoe of motion, kinda like standard tracks
I have 3 different new 3D models on the go at the moment and not one will go the way I would like so I difted off to muck about with existing stuff I had done in a photobash session - I rushed it too much I think much the same as I did with "Surprise Visitor" which has some serious shadow issues.
Though I still feel that the articulated lift units would benefit a long range sniper type tank, or a close range brawler (if the scientists of this world can work out a way to transport a massive computer stuffed with valves/tubes), and the linear lift units would be better suited to a more general tank. Double so, if it has a rotating turret.
I'd still want to see the film though (having seen Das Boot in the original German).
It will only set me off though and for now I have tried to keep away from the sea war.
I should have taken a bit more time on it maybe but it was fun.
