Hate to resurrect this thread, but I've been thinking alot about this again. Especially since I saw a book called T-34 Mythical Weapon, which describes every piece of the tank with over 880 photos, scale drawings, and the like. Which I think I'm going to have to buy. But that led me to this question, would it even be legal? Does Russia own the design for it, or since they were communist no one really owns it? And would it even be legal to have a tank in your yard to drive around (I know it isn't street legal), would a permit or some such be necessary?
