M31 Hurricane XMBT

Postby Ben-Jammin » Tue Aug 09, 2011 6:58 am

My summer break ends tomorrow, and I realized that I haven't made hardly any new lego stuff over the break. I figured that I should do that, so I made a new tank for the Calvarians.

Image

The Hurricane is designed around a powerful new weapon: the railgun. Its deadly firepower can turn even the most advanced tank into a rubble pile in seconds.

Image

The turret can rotate 360 degrees, and the railgun can pivot roughly 90 degrees.

The Hurricane's turret interior. Sadly, it can only seat a fig when the turret is open.

Needs Moar lighting!  But otherwise, looks good.  Missile pods are nice, although it does look like it is back heavy and roll onto its back the first incline it encounters. And the silowet (is that how you spell it?) is too tall for a medium tank.  But im just being nit-picky, and encourage people to do it on my stuff as well.  Otherwise, the tanks wide tracks suggest that it is made for all terrain combat.  The sloped armour also suggests that it is well protected for an AFV of its size.  Good build.
