5.5" in length, however, you won't be able to blow it up (I beat you to the punch xD) - had to take it apart for parts. However, it's not the last you'll see of this series!
In other news, the instructions are almost complete (probably will finish them Friday afternoon or Saturday morning, depending on the NALUG display at Edmonton Comic Expo). Once they are complete however, I will not be able to sell them until I can confirm whether or not the Leopard will be picked up for kit production or if I will be holding a KickStarter.

I do like the concept of an armoured recovery vehicle in brikwars, that functions like a big mechanic, and I tried building some of my own, but they never fit the right vibe. No offence, though, this seems a little sub-par coming from you. especially that front slope.

The first vehicle of 2017 - I present to you, the CVRT Scimitar!

Image

Image

Armed with a 30mm Rarden cannon, the Scimitar is more than capable in the scout and support role.

That's all! Finally got to use my Brickmania track links :D

Revision of the CVRT series is almost complete, so I thought I'd share some photographs :D

The chassis has been the subject of late, while the turret has remained relatively untouched. The overall length has been reduced by two studs, while the vehicle's height has been shortened from 28 to 22 plates. These modifications serve to more accurately render the CVRT series in Lego form.

In addition to these changes, the chassis has been reworked via Technic to allocate working suspension. This was implemented to ensure accurate roadwheel spacing, as a stud system was simply not practical at 1/35 scale.


Image

Last things to do are colour coordination, a stowage box mounted at the rear of the hull, and streamlining the underside of the chassis (to allow for an extra stud of ground clearance).

Almost ready to convert into a digital format for retail!
Yes, this model will be substantially more affordable than the Leopard. Once complete, this model will be a joy to have around :D.

Great to see another awesome tank from ya man! Nice touch with the red dragon flag. The missile rack is great too.
