This has to be one of the most simple builds you have made and it looks awesome! Keep this up man. :tiger:

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present to you the M8 Hellcat!

Image
Designed for the US military as a light reconnaissance vehicle, the Hellcat is capable of reaching 12" a turn!

Image
The Hellcat can be armed with either a 4" launcher or gun, depending on the engagement.

Image
This firepower is further bolstered with a .50 cal machine gun - perfect for CQC.

Image
Although the suspension is simple, it allows the Hellcat to roll effortlessly over any terrain.

Feel free to adopt this vehicle into your armed forces! If there is enough demand for it, I'll go through the trouble of making instructions :D

This little tank is quite cool. I may even borrow the design... if only I had those treads :evil:

They are a bit offset due to the roadwheels. The only other pieces I could use were gears, and they don't have the best track record of rolling on surfaces other than carpet and blankets.

Is this based off the m18 hellcat? Also, the gun looks a little off. I love the crate on the turret bustle, though. I need to make some steampunky tanks.

Instructions please. I want to make some sort of panzer out of it and some structural help is required. Also tracks and suspension.

Sure thing mate - I'll see if I can make instructions for it in the next few weeks. (Not entirely sure when though, as my computer access will be tuned down over the next month while I prepare to move to California).

Edit: Yes SV, indeed it is :D

Ah, this is why small quirky tanks are the best.

Pz. 38t perhaps? Has the right amount of roadwheels for it.

Not sure if I've posted these before or not. Anyhow, here are some photos of my launcher ammunition design and how I cram them into some of my armoured vehicles :D

Nice looking terrain in the last picture.
