Phew! It's been a very busy few weeks for me. I've reached a lull, hopefully it will last.  :smile:

This tank is not my own design, I found it online some time ago, and decided to see what I could come up with. Note that the 40 ton designation is just filling empty space, it's kind of hard to read the original image.- Posted Image

And here's my representation.- Posted Image

Thanks! The major design profile lines are bolder, that helps a lot.

Tank destroyer based off the previous design (I finally learned how to spell it in French lol.)-

Mucking around with a few details on the AMX 50 100, decided to assign the design to the company Batignolles-Châtillon, here's the result.-Posted Image

I also hand- draw tanks as well, though im not sure they would come out very well through the scanner. Oh well, I can still hand- copy designs to paint. Here's another "self- designed" tank, the Centaur Mk. V medium tank.-Posted Image
Sorry if the image is squished. Feel free to comment!  :smile:

I spend quite a lot of my time designing fictional tanks, though I don't know much technical info about the specific parts of tanks, but I think I know enough.
I like that there's a rather centralized topic for it, and I like your designs, too. I despise drawing wheels while you don't seem to have issues with that.
Anyway, here's a thing- A French mid to early war TD.
By the way, I think the oscillating turret on your latest French autoloader are a little too low down to the hull.

Thanks! I'm not too fond of drawing wheels myself, though i find when hand- drawing them, a circle template helps immensely.
For the Bat. Chat. 50t, i took a photo of my AMX 50 100 side- on and used that as my primary reference. When i drew the tank, it looked fine, now I think it looks odd. Oh well, I can always do another!
A few things about your design, it looks good, if not a little short on headroom for the crew. Also, try drawing the tank itself larger, it allows for far more small details in one place. You put a lot more effort in the tracks though. Can't say the same for myself lol, i just shade in dark lines, and add the teeth and outside links and call it done. Maybe ill try to see if I can scan in some of my hand- drawn tanks. :glasses:
I subbed to your youtube channel btw. Always nice to still have WoT videos, but with a difference from Quickybaby, Circonflexes, Sidestrafe, or Jingles. Good luck on the growth of your channel!

Well, last night i decided to switch gears a bit and make the front- ends of some real tanks. It's funny what one can accomplish whilst listening to Bill Engvall.
First up, the Caernarvon heavy tank in British green.-

Thanks a lot for subbing! Also, very nice frontal views. I always have trouble filling my drawings with detail like hooks, periscopes, etc., they always looks kinda empty.
I have a drawing of a German turreted TD (yes, turreted) that looks kinda post-WW2, but still pretty good.
Though this one is in paint and the tracks aren't as detailed at ALL, due to trying to draw a ton of teeth being an utter b****.
Link (upload quota reached): www.multiupload.nl/77NR6HDWJ1
Gun: 150mm L/44 (calculated).
Armor: Turret: 90/50/35 (Turret armor lower than hull armor to compensate for the turret being mounted in the rear and being so big, so this way the tank will be balanced.
Not an engineer, but just estimating).
Hull: 240/100/35 (Heavily sloped front to protect driver, radio operator and engine.
Estimated weight: 75~ tons.
Engine: 800 horsepower.
P/W ratio: 10.66 hp/ton.
Top speed: 24 km/h.
Penetration: 260~ (estimated based on E-100's gun and the 128mm gun, in the middle ground. Again, not an engineer, just estimating).
Track traverse speed: ~20 degrees per second.
Estimated RoF: 4.5-5 rounds per minute, due to big turret space and convenient location of ammo rack- right behind the gun, in the turret overhang.

It looks kinda unbalanced, i would have made the hull longer. Though I should talk, most of my self- designed tanks' turrets are too small for the guns to fit. Then again, take a look at the side of the 121 for example. The breech fills the entire turret lol.

Well, the engine being in the front , gun sticking out to the front, and thick frontal armor kinda balance it, I would think.

love the design and hate not being able to contribute due to my bad technical drawing skills so i coloured in your tank :D
P.S sorry about the blurring apparently i didn't save it right in photoshop *facepalm*

No wonder it took you a while to respond :P
Also, some criticism: Grey is a little too dark for German grey, and the white parts on the front drive wheel are supposed to be the metal parts, and the other ones are supposed to be spaces :P
I'll throw in my idea of it:
www.multiupload.nl/90WT3Y27P1
How do I upload a photo normally? Clicking the little tree icon doesn't work.
And I'm glad you like it! I like your French designs too, especially the TD's.

I use photobucket, just get an account and upload your images. It's free and has a lot more storage available than Flickr. Once you've uploaded a picture, get it's direct link and paste it in the URL of "image properties." Do remember, however, not all images posted on the WoT forums will be well- rendered. Some might be a little stretched or squished lol.
Thanks on the French TDs! I cant wait to get the Foch on live.  :playing:

I bought the Excelsior yesterday, and am currently finishing the Churchill Mk. I grind. So I was inspired.

I think i prefer the second of the two though.-

Ground clearance is massive :P But nice! I would assume the squishyness is due to the upload.
I would love to see the stats.

Thanks! That's so an ELC AMX can fit underneath lol. :teethhappy:

Im not coming up with stats, just drawing them. I would only add stats if i were suggesting a tank for the game, which I have not intended this thread to be full of in-game suggestions. ;)

Nice! It's like a British ELC.
Maybe it could fit under the Caviler :)
You inspired me to draw a British Churchill style tank, maybe I'll do that.

Wow, brilliant work. Definitely very British, with the squat box turrets and the long hulls and whatnot. I particularly liked your front-end designs, with all that tiny detail. Perhaps more in the future? Please?
