Super cool project! Looks excellent. Looks like the worm drive went the way of the dinosaur (ie extinct). Very nice, the track shoes are really cool.

Hi Robert,

the worm drive produced to much axial force on the Truck Puller motor and I decided to replace it. :wink:

In the engine compartment is stil place for an engine replica, which is already under construction.
Kind regards
Günter

Beautiful little engine. 3D printing is a wonderful tool for this sort of detail. Still trying to wrap my head around all those real rivets! Even a small tank like this has a lot of rivets. Super cool project - can't wait to see it running!
Best regards,
Bob
