I noticed a lack of room for elevation on that tank (huge tank fanatic here so it better be fuckin perfect)

I based mine off the Sturmtiger assault gun, but this one uses a "gun" style artillery piece instead of a 380mm rocket mortar. A gun style artillery piece fires on a low arc over longer ranges, much like a normal AT cannon, where a mortar fires at an incredibly high arc with a very short range. Read it's description a tad closer, its a purpose built assault gun, with the ability to lay down long range support fire.

Ok, so now that I have time, I think i'm going to do a special build of my favorite ship...

Space Battleship Yamato.

Gonna take a couple of days at least to get a rough draft version down, but I think I can do it and make a full-size, functional, and battle ready SB Yamato.

Good luck, its I have a 3d sketchup model of the ship in all its glory of cubes... needless to say have fun with all the curves.

Ohhh, mind if i have a peek? I've been struggling to find any usable materials for size/shaping.

Honestly i'm basing my build off the closest thing i could find in a pinch: a SB Yamato Minecraft build. Not exactly professional or fancy, but its working for now, i have the rough hull first draft about 25% (I didn't realize exactly how much more I have to do until now) done as it stands.



Okay, here is a quick picture of her front half (about 40-45% complete now), so I threw a quick coat of paint on it to take the picture.

(Anyone saying it needs a different paint scheme will be smacked through the internet.)

Spoiler


The SB Yamato in all her glory. Well, her bow section at least. At this rate she'll be done in 1, maybe 2 days more.




Okay, more construction updates... Finished the majority of her "Beehive" AAA section, and now all that's left is to start tapering down the hull to the engine. After that I do another hull check to make sure not a single block is misplaced, and then its on to the the primary and secondary bridges and turrets.

Spoiler


More hull!!!! :D

More or less, yeah. I'm looking for some very detailed floor plans so i can fill the interior... I want to have the Wave Motion Gun firing chamber and Wave Motion Engine room at least.

Wikipedia works too: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Battleship_Yamato_(spaceship)

According to that article, size is:
285.8m long (round it up or down to 285 or 286 meters).
34.6 wide (round it up or down to 34 or 35).
77m overall height.

Never actually saw the series or anything of it, but knew of its existence. Looks interesting...

Oh damn, so shes literally twice the size (Guess I was way off, thought she was larger)... hmmm, well, no matter since she's still a sexy beast. :D Also i don't think that first interior is of the version i'm building... Though the second one looks about right.



Okay, a new construction photo!

Spoiler


Yay, almost done!

Not sure if I'm feeling the paint scheme.  8)

Considering how light the SBY is in the pictures I've seen compared to that yeah. standard plating would probably look better :/

Alrighty, here she is in light plate... i got lazy though so the primary bridge isn't painted.

Spoiler


Not fond of it myself, i think its too light... but there's no mid point color wise between Heavy and Standard plate.

You are missing the under-body control/landing bay thing, the fins, a few guns at the rear... okay I could go on and on (Gotta find that model for you... not going so well :( ), personally the light plate is eh, it isn't true to the ships nature which is probably what makes it eh, also those barrels look thick (might just be the angle), also any high rez pics?

Here's a suggestion. If something isn't going as planned on a build do the following:

- Try to salvage it

- Start again

I mostly choose start again since I always manage to make things look/function better than before. Like when I noticed a major flaw on my Vindicator. Tried to salvage it, that didn't work, so I started all over again.

Also, keep the heavy plating. Looks closer to what you want to achieve more than you think.

Or give it a custom paint job.

Start again??? Are you kidding? That ship looks amazing, no, perfect O_o Of ocurse the barrels are to big, because he must use blocks and keep an actual barrel intact. But you want him to restart because of that and the fucking PAINTJOB???
