An inexpensive, makeshift troop-carrier for the forest people.
About this creation
Here is a small troop carrier that I built for the foresters in Terraforge. It is a half-track, meaning that it is a treaded vehicle, but also has two wheels in the front. The half-track can carry three to four men, as well as supplies. It is decorated appropriately to it's environment: the forest, a trait in all Terraforge vehicles. I used the same tequnique to hold up the side walls as the Soviet jeep in 7628 Peril in Peru. See pic. 8 for a shot of the minifigures used in this MOC. Please review, and thanks for looking!
Side view. Notice the smokestack and the pressure gauge.
Back view. Notice of ammo hanging off of the soldier's gun.
Other side, since the vehicle is terribly asymmetrical.
Shot of the cabin. Notice the grass growing in the passenger seat.
I still cannot accept the Indy and Thunder hats. Just like your other vehicle, SMALL! Everything you make is small. You did a good job on this, but I would like to see some better styling. It should look more like the vehicle is made of its element instead of leaves and wood strapped on. Overall 4/5.
Thanks for your comment! I'll see what I can build. Also, Sterling can't lose because it wasn't a contest. It's to compare our different building styles. I wonder why he is making his fig-scale. We picked the orange ship so we could use that windshield. I can't wait to see his version! He was supposed to post his yesterday too, but I guess he was too busy.
This reminds me of a helicopter I made once; it had the top of a large palm tree for the rotors, and grass for the tail propeller, and the whole thing was green and brown. Cool car, keep it up, -matthew-
