We haven't had a Jaguar variant in a while...

...so I made one.

This is a very urban variant, meant for patrolling the streets of war-torn cities.

And because grenade launchers are too mainstream, it has dual flame throwers.

Y/N?

I like it.  Every time I try to build a car like that, it never comes out right.

Very cool looking. The colour scheme makes it look post apocalyptic.

Yes! Good idea with the flame throwers.

THat turret is great. I like how you re-did the front as well. Awesome job.

Flamethrowers!? Brilliant idea; I might have to lift that for one of my two APC's...

Dammit. I tried to make the colours look cleaner, but I guess I need to work on my colour blocking.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. The funny thing about the turret was that I wanted to use the harpoon guns on it, but it was way too exposed. I just happened to have those flag pieces right beside me, so I stuck them on. It worked out nicely.

I feel the opposite way, the colouring made it seem more like part of a faction.

I am a fan!! Modified Jaguars are always good vehicles.  I am really excited to see what else you bring to the battle this week since last time you had a lot of cool stuff.

When I built my jaguar I had thought about using those tires attached to the white wheels they were designed for.  I can't believe I didn't think to try them on these wheels.

Oh, I think I know which ones you're talking about. I have them, but these are different tires. It's the exact same style, but they're designed for this type of wheel. I got them from this set:

And thanks! I have a bunch of vehicles built up already, including a fire truck, heavy-duty forklift, and a giant  :666: trike. I've been building a lot over the past few days to prepare.

What I tried to say was that it looked like a civilian vehicle modified for military purposes.

What set is that?  Do those cars fit minifigs?
