I am glad you all like the idea... ;)

Been busy in the Dark Ages during the week, but managed to build something new for the wierd condottas... :)

Its the start of the next faction...
...just think of towers wich are a little bit out of balance... lol

Its a moving campanile-tank. erm yes: for Pisa.
Perhaps a bit early to post it. Just some WIP-pics, sorry.

Started with a core of styropor. Just raw and sketchy.



Glueing it together. Stabalised with toothpicks.



Then some balsawood is chopped to the right length.
And giving some detail with the toothpicks to it, carving lines...



Next is glueing the wood to the core.



After the tower-base is planked I builded a small lookout at the top.



After that a few wheels are added for mobility. The tank will be drawn from inside so it will be pretty slow.



So far it looked more like a siegetower so I added two gunpits at each side.





Took me 3 hours so far.

Cheers,
DV

I cant wait to see the completed leaning tower.
