[BB18] "Mammoth" HAZMAT Transport

Postby ReconMiner » Sat Mar 03, 2018 10:11 pm

Long ago, when the great DSM empire was expanding across the galaxy, they realized they needed a vehicle that could safely transport personnel across a wide range of environments

The Mammoth class rover was a result of this research, with its robust design still being used many centuries later

Being able to equip everything from small laser cannons up to dual heavy railguns makes this craft incredibly versatile
Its modular interior is fully sealed against most hazards and can be reconfigured for both recon and assault use

You are correct! (Think Tomahawk missile/predator drone)

These are super cool

looks like it would be fun to play with the different modules

could you use an archway piece to fit that rounded door?

I played around with a few ideas, but they took up a bit too much space for my liking. Something to play around with when I have time to actually build it

Style: 6/10 It's a box on wheels. Yeah, it's a modular box on wheels, but still...
Substance: 10/10! Dude, you made the equivalent of a Space Marine(tm-ish) Rhino for the Brikwars-verse! Modular seating, modular turrets and attachments, this thing is basically THE versatile transport workhorse!
Photography: hmm... 7/10 Only a few pics, but you showed a LOT of options for what is possible on this chassis!

Boast?: Um... 6/10? You didn't really BOAST as per se, but dude, you made a modular transport with lots of configuration and weapon options... ^o0^

Style: 6.5/10 Like Scrib said, it's a box on wheels. That said, the mosaic on the top is a nice touch.
Substance: 9/10 The build itself is a bit clunky, but the various roof accessories are all very well-built, and the interior is simply but solidly furnished.
Photography: 7/10 It's LDD, so there's not too much you can do here, but the pics are solid, and bonus points for including multiple builds.
Comments: This build would look better with either larger rubber tires or treads, but other than that it's a solid build, and the customization options are the icing on the cake.

Fewer angles do mean easier cleaning of enemy guts or radioactive goo

I was also going for a more simple design like the older sets (conveniently it’s also easier and bit more robust)

I may even do one in M-Tron colors too (once I get the classic space version actually built)

Style: 7/10 Remind me of the classic space theme and early lego construction techniques with a modern twist.
Substance: 9/10 I really do like all of the weapon options.
Photography: 8/10 Really you can't get any better from LDD.
