This is my panzer IV (WIP):

Caman0- Thanks for sharing your WIP of the same type of tank. Looks amazing. I love the about of detail. Also thanks for sharing your blueprints, they are very detailed as well. How did you do the treads on yours?

thanx for liking the tank, its been a loooong project, still not ready as you can tell...

tracks are made using splines, standard primitives and some editable poly stuff :) its a mixture really...Placing the track parts was done my hand, after i drew a spline-sketch of the general layout. (easier placing, following a line)

close-up of the track:

suspension system:

hope this helps. If you need more reference material, let me know, i did loads of reaserach on this one :)
