I run into this crazy concept for a ball tank from 1936 issue of Popular Science magazine. It's so out there that I decided to try my hand at modelling it.

The plan is to make into 3d printable miniature.

Going ok so far 😃

It seems Popular Science was quite a champion of off-beat inventions/solutions:

After I am done with this model, I will browse through the archives of the magazine to find some other weird machines to model :D

Few more greebles (the back looks bit plain, might add some exhaust pipes there) and I will call it done.

Already have it in parts for fdm printing, and with that I will also have movable side turrets!

...and the Non Commercial aspect of the license is there only to deter stl resellers. I'm more than happy to grant commercial license to anyone if they ask.

@FredBednarski that's a great idea, looking forward to the model, that would make a fun painting project :3
