The MT Skunk Shop
Definition of a skunkworks: A small focused operation, with minimal managerial and budgeting constraints, set about to achieve an objective in an extraordinarily limited amount of time using unconventional methods. Now I like the sound of that! Welcome to the MT Expedition Skunkworks. Our objective: to design and build the LEGO world's best off-road expedition vehicles. And this is where it all happens.
About this creation
Sorry for the mess. Things are a bit busy around the skunk shop nowadays - lot's of exciting projects coming up. The shop ain't much, but, hey, it serves its purpose. Anyway, first things first - let's introduce you to the crew.



Above: The Crew (From left to right): Joey (Driver/Builder), Kristoph (Mechanical Engineer), Chase (Owner), Mike (CAD Designer), and Ethan (Driver/Builder)



Above: The crew hard at work (like they should be!). Left foreground: Kristoph (funny name, but a beast with a wrench) works on a winch assembly for the upcoming MT-2 H-D/ESV project. Left background: Chase preps the TIG for some welding. Right background: Mike heads back to the drawing board (well, the computer screen) in the CAD workshop. Right foreground: Joey and Ethan work on a prototype roll-cage design.



Above: two pieces of heavy equipment any decent fabrication shop wouldn't be caught dead without: an air compressor and a TIG welder. If you don't know what a TIG welder is, then you probably wouldn't care about hearing what it was.



Above: some other vital tools of the trade. From left to right: Buzz saw, cans of Liquid Wrench®, a couple impact wrenches, angle grinder, crowbar, torque wrench, sledge, box wrench, open wrench, oil sprayer, and, of of course, a cordless drill

Now scram! We got u-bolts that need cuttin'. And differentials that need settin'. And spark plugs that need gappin'. On second thought why don't you stick around and help? Grab that coil spacer and...wait...where you going? Leaving so soon?

It was kinda hard to see because of the picture size, but it looks pretty good. You really ought to use bigger photos.

Well I don't know who Brian is, but if you could Legofy Dilbert, for example, well the sky's the limit. Even Sean would have to check in for every episode. Watch his posted interview by the cute Japanese broadcaster, and tell me he wasn't living Dilbert in his former career.

Quoting Tom Simon Skunkworks: A small focused operation, with hard core managerial constraints imposed by a ruthless visionary (as opposed to a manager, or "door knob"), set about to achieve an objective in a reasonable amount of time using b%$t f(@k obvious methods known for decades or centuries, usually by disallowing subordinates from being id*^ts, usually achieved by the visionary doing the task himself. Phew! That was quite the tirade. Give me a moment to wipe my brow. OK, nice MOC, dude!
HA! That was hilarious. Meh, don't patronize me. This was supposed to be a start to a whole funny comic-like series with funny anecdotes and whatnot. Alas, I stumbled onto the page of Brian Kescenovitz and the rest is history.

CAD!!! Im glad somebody on here recognised the very important (and fun) task of Drawing the blueprints. P.S. I've used an application called Autodesk AutoCAD for the past two years

Quoting Siddhart Jaipal Great thing to see. I hardly saw someone scaling a shop like this before.
Thanks! I had some parts laying around and thought "Hey why not build something"
