Heavy Armed Construction Tanker
Heavy Armed Construction Tanker. A micro scale heavy tanker armed to defend against pirates.
About this creation



The Heavy Armed Construction Tanker was the Company's first succesful freighter designed to move fuel and gaseous materials to offworld construction projects.

Prior to the HACT going into service, much loss of life and resources were suffered at the hands of deep space pirates who would cripple the unarmed ships, plunder all cargo and useful technology onboard and leave the craft a floating carcass in space. It soon became too costly to escort these craft with smaller armed vessels which were unsuited for deep space deliveries.

And so the Company designed the first heavy tanker fitted out with a devestating laser battery. In order to eliminate the need to carry solid ammunition for a typical projectile cannon, the six barrels of the laser array draw power from the main drive engines. Enough power to eliminate small to medium sized attack craft and represent a real problem to pirates.


I have been inspired by the micro creations of some of the Japanese designers - so I thought I'd go as SNOT crazy as I could and see if I could make something worthwhile...

6 June 2006 - In retrospect, I shoulda called this thing a tanker, given the cylindrical nature of the 'cargo bay', some edits made...

Mostly average reviews here but this is a real gem, honest! Those 4 arm trees are one of the hardest pieces to use well and on a tiny model too! The surfaces are all at unusual angles, no flat and boring and no studs showing either, Major Bonus! I must say I have very rarely seen people who will add their own decals or decorate the lego for the desired effect, but those tiny dots of black on the end of the guns is all it takes to convince you they really are guns! A small idea that that has a large impact. Keep doin what you're doin, this is great!

This is really cool! I like the cockpit and minifig hand aas a turret idea. It flows very nicely. You are really good at this.

I think you would deeply research kinds of fine buildings like Zizy or Squieu, but finally you would get them as Your Own Creations. Active shape is so beautiful and I like "no.3 tile" featured on the top.
