I built this a ways back, but never got around to showing it off, so here it is!
Image
This beastie is taking up about half my dark grey, but I think its worth it.
being able to hold 14 troops and 3 pilot-ish people.(thats 17 total)
15 in the the APC itself and two in the turret above.(which does rotate by the way)
Image
As you can see there are a few working functions.....
Image
Now I only have 9 troops stuffud into there right now but I didn't want them to look too squshed.
Normaly I'd have 13 troops stuffed in there but I had to use the extra four for my Sand Puma.
Stats,
Armor: 3d10
Move: 8"
Weapons,
Main cannon,
Use: 7
Range: 16"
Damage: 2d10 explosive
Heavy Machinegun: still no stats.....

I'd hardly call it "boxy", especially considering how closely it resembles the real thing. Very nice job.

The real thing is actualy this see wheels not treads! I actualy saw about 5 of those driving by on the road a few weeks back.
They didn't have any of big turret on top but there was a troop manning a large machinegun! :)

Yeah at first I thought it was an LAV-25, but it's missing some wheels and the turret is more centered. And it's much much too big. I know this because I worked out the dimensions and made two of them. And then left them at home when I went to college... and never picked them back up...

Anyways, the actual LAV-25 looks like this:
