I like that look, but how about removing one of the front turrets and putting the viewport there instead? Something like this:

Guessing the colours based off of the pictures of the Sovaks.

Yeah, the tank could use some asymmetry

Looks like you'll have lots of space on top for detailing too, have fun building it.

Ok i finished it last night but the lighting was to terrible for pictures so here it is complete in bricks! I currently have no idea what to name it any usggestions would be welcome.

Front. Thanks aoffan23 for the view port design i think it really adds to it and makes it look better than it did.
Image
Side.
Image
Rear. Not exactly that good looking but there is not really much i can do with my skills and knowledge.

P cool build. I'd go for cockroach, as long as you don't have an established nomenclature for your folks already.

Thinking about a mass overhaul of the Trattorian army and mocked up some designs in LDD before I put in the orders. Piece price and availability was a big factor in these.

Robot drones (the white one in the middle, the gold one is just for reference):

Tank drones:

I also mocked up a triangular robot design (on the left) but cost seems to be too much.
Image

What do you guys think of the designs?

Because everything's better with math.

Try to make a mock-up of these smaller robos irl, so you can see how robust or fragile these might be.
And the tank surely would benefit from an accent colour.

I think he's going for the all white-out look

I know that these tanks try to achieve some iPad aesthetics but a big all-white log just doesn't look that well. Just making the grille pieces silver would add so much more to the design imo.
