Again, I'd have to completely rebuild the thing just to mount the larger windshields.

...I'm begining to wonder if I should just post the .lxf to Eurobrick asking for color corrections...

You seem to be really unwilling to make any effort to fix it, even when people tell you how. Having to redesign something is just one of the things that you have to do when building. Shit happens.

Look, the piece you are suggesting for the front is hollow and needs to be mounted from the top.
Considering the front that I designed this model around is mounted on hinged assembly coming up from the base, I can't just swap one or two parts.
Quid pro quo, I might as well design a new model if I'm going to go to THAT much extra effort!

You have to understand, I thought that I could just buy this tank for my birthday, and it is extremely frustrating to have to go all the way back to square one.

I don't think that phrase means what you think it means.

In fact I'd say your whole objection is based on the fact that the suggested quid pro quo is impossible.

Sorry, I only look far enough to see that the literal latin translation is "this for that," I.E. "This windscreen for that wedge piece."


...Have I mentioned I've been awake for 15 hours straight now?

It's not like I'm not trying...

And that was making the canopy in question TAN (Brick Yellow) to match everything else, when it is really comes in DARK TAN (SAND Yellow)...

I actually like the newer version better, but you should try finishing the top. Also it looked dark tan to me, that's why I suggested that part.

I think you have to stop limiting yourself to crappy colors.

I don't honestly...
The front looks like an obvious windscreen, begging to be torn off and looking too much like the NEWER Droid Transport then I'd like...

...Which is why I changed colors and minor part interations!

Hey, at least the new model has less variety!

It will also have 6152px1 instead of a plain old regular 6152!


...Still, I think I'm going to post the .lxf on Eurobricks to see if anyone over there can spot any other color issuse.

...sounds like a preference for complaining over trying. Welcome to the limitations of LDD over a real bucket of LEGO. As the cliche goes, beggars can't be choosers...

Amongst a sea of whiney bitchiness, this strikes me the most. You fucking pussy. What, is your bed time like 8? What fucking college did you go to that makes you think 15 hours is bad?
