Ha! Very original, Jean! It looks great.
I recognise some of those tank parts: the track looks like it's from a Tiger tank (I or II or even a Jagdtiger) ; the turret looks from an M1 tank - likely an M1 or M1-IP that had a 105mm M68/L7 gun, as opposed to an M1A1 with a 120mm gun. That was as far as I got, except for the turret basket mesh pieces I think you used on the "feet."
Anyway - what a great idea!
PS - for those who may bristle at my word use of "gun;" that IS correct: a "gun" (in armour terms) is a direct-fire weapon (it shoots basically straight at the target) as opposed to "lobbing" a round at the target to hit it miles or kilometers away in an arc shaped trajectory. (a typical modern tank CAN shoot a target up to 3 miles/5 kms. away, and some CAN be used as short-range (maybe 5 miles/ 8 kms.) artillery piece, but tanks are generally used to defeat other tanks or armoured vehicles. That idea has changed a little since so much modern fighting has moved from the flat planes of Europe to more urban or city-fighting, so a high explosive round CAN be beneficial. The US quit using HE rounds (we called them HEP - High Explosive Plastic) when the 105mm gun was replaced by the 120mm gun on the M1A1 series.
Hope I didn't bore you. This IS about your VERY well done model after all, Jean.

Great looking model. It must have a really good gyroscope to keep it upright on those rollers.
good glue especially
