Thanks. Still working on it. I wasn't sure myself whether i should leave the vents in or not. Which other things you think are weird (good weird or bad weird)? The barrel shape, i guess?

Very few like the gigantic sprocket wheels and the very front ones that I can never remember the name of. Those hooks on the lower front plate that would dig into the ground, the massive vents on the turret. Generally ammo or equipment like radios would go in the rear and not a giant air conditioner :D and the things on the rear that block the turret from rotating. Minor things I can point out if it should have 'realistic' features. Although the turret not being able to rotate is a big problem :D

Still a very awesome picture and fine looking tonk.

Thanks man! You're very helpful. Yeah, I noticed the turret rotation issue. When I started out with the sketch, I had intended it to be a fixed turret artillery piece or tank killer, possibly something with a more futuristic weapon that gets very hot (I guess that's where I came up with the vents). During painting, I changed a couple of things.  I was still deciding whether I would elevate the turret a notch, which would make the tank a bigger target, or to remove those blocks at least partially. I'll make some edits today and update the deviation. I don't think I'll change the sprockets for now, but I'll take that advice to the next armour I'll design. I guess the big sprockets make it look a bit dated, but I personally always liked that on T-52's. Anyhow, thanks again.
