Hi I'm going to have ago at building a steampunk tank, as my Renauult FT17 has died a death, I'm using a AMX13-105 hull & running gear and the turret is from a Toon Tiger the boiler & pipes chimneys will all be scrach built and the colours will probably black/brass/copper.

I started with the hull & running gear.

Next up is to make a new front and finish the boiler/ pipes, waiting on some Steampunk gear to come in the post.

Thank you for looking in.
Pete.
