Brown Bear Heavy Tank and Dio
The third in my series of "Bear" tanks. The Brown Bear. It's not totally brown, its just grey with Brown highlights.
About this creation
First, the diorama!

The tank came first, then I built this diorama around it. I built the dio mostly because I wanted to have more than just the tank, I wanted to try my hand at destroyed buildings and rubble-filled streets, but mostly because I wanted to enter something into the "Shannon Rocks" diorama contest. Here ya go Shan.



The full diorama, with my tank rolling through the streets of a city previously destroyed, and now conquered, by my armies.



An infantry man walks along in front of the tank.



the dio with no tank or man.



one side of the street, a destroyed building of red brick, and the corner of another blown-up building.



The other side of the street, with a demolished building of concrete.



details abound, like this unexploded artillery shell in the street.


My custom soldier.



No star wars parts here, just a soldier fig in urban grey camo.


And finally... THE TANK!



One view.



Two view. Red view. Blue view.



The soldier minifig stands for comparison.



The main gun, a huge beast, capable of firing large shells long distances.



A 30mm chaingun mounted above the turret.


The tank in an armored column



along with my Missile Launcher Truck and Infantry Support Vehicle.

I like the scene. But the tank needs a smaller turret. You should make the main gun just a bit smaller. 4/5

Thanks for your entry and for helping to make my first-ever contest a rousing success!

I have taken much of the great advice given to me by my RA-CAS-UEN friends. The turret has been reworked to be smaller and lower. The chaingun on the roof has been reworked and now looks better and is remote controlled from the cab. Thank you for all the great Advice! I will post pictures on Flickr eventually.

Justthe scene tells how devastating this tank is. It look cool and has nice guns. Are you going to make a grizzly bear tank?

Thank you everyone, its always nice to get building tips from the more experienced members of RA-CAS-UEN. As I am just starting out in this military genre, I'll definitely be needing help.

Not a bad little dio, but my personal favorite part was the "one view, two view, red view, blue view".

I concur with most of the previous statements. The turret is rather box-like and the profile is rather large. Most, if not all, MBT's try to keep a low and slender profile to increase the "hunt" capability, so to speak. Plus, the upper 30mm is rather exposed and would only need one well-placed Molotov to burn the gunner to a heap of ash. Other than that, this was displayed quite nicely and contains quite a few nice features; good work.

EXCELLENT WORK! I love the 30mm chaingun! I think I know where that idea came from, lol...

Not bad but i think the Turret is WAY to big for the chassis.
