Finished my tank for my demo reel today. I purchased a plastic scale model and scaned in the plans to use as image planes. I modeled the entire inside, down to every bolt and washer. Crits appreciated.

Hey there your model is really impressive, however I have noticed a few things that bother me about it. I built this same model kit a while back (Academy) and can see areas that arent quite right. I'm asuming you wanted it to be as accurate as possible.

The track links are out of proportion and I think you could increase believability by chamfering some of the really hard edges here and there.

If you are using 3dsMax which I think you are then maybe try using a path deform modifier to fit the tracks around the wheels in a more organic way e.g. not just separate sections stuck together

I hope that helps and good luck to you, I am thinking of a similar undertaking for my demo reel. :)
