Light Tank

So, this is my light tank for Brikwars use. As a light tank, it's meant for reconnaissance and to quickly infiltrate behind enemy lines and disrupt their movements/communications. It's not really a tank because treads are a bit expensive and I was going for the smallest, cheapest tank-thingy that still seated a minifig and looked nice. It's loosely based off the Soviet T-34.

And I thought I was good at compact building.

This is brilliant, i may have to use some of the design features. What part is the ring mount for the turret?

It appears to not use one.

That's a damn good light tank.
I don't ever remember seeing that ring piece before though, which makes it all the more interesting for me.

yeah, I actually found out about it while I was looking up the parts I needed on bricklink. I originally used these and it was a bit more cramped for the minifig.

I like the non-fussy nature of all the flat surfaces and I also like it's small size. The only thing I would change is the gun barrel, and this is just my opinion, but for guns longer than 1" stacking cylinder pieces and nothing else doesn't do a build (especially one as neat as this) justice, and instead I would normally go for giving is some kind of little detail. Having said that, this is a very "clean" thing, so perhaps a simpler gun is fine. Still a pretty build.

ALSO: While you based it on a T-34, it reminds me of a French armoured car; http://www.army-technology.com/projects ... -vehicles/
