UNSC Beetle Tank
This actually started as a scorpion. I changed it so much that I knew It would have to be different. Here's its story: The "Beetle" was actually made to be the UNSCs main battle tank. It was too expensive to mass produce and they didn't want the tech that moved it (not tracks) to fall into innie (insurrectionist) hands. ONI put the blueprints under X-Ray level clearance. Some of the best ODSTs got together to ask ONI if they could build one. They knew of the blueprints because they were around when it was under construction. ONI was convinced that they would not lose it. So here it is.
About this creation


Here's an overall view of the beast. I took me from 7:00 PM to 8:30 yesterday and from 12:30 PM to 2:00 today.



Here are the turrets.



The front two tracks (I'll just call them tracks even though there are none).



The back tracks.



Right side.



Left side. This tank was NOT made for people to sit on. If you were sitting on one of the sides and the turret rotated... it would not be pretty.



Finally a close up of the middle. The only thing that I don't like about it is that I can't put a 'fig in it. Anyway, lets just say they can.

Please rate and comment.

It looks like a Mammoth drove over a scorpion! Cool idea, probably good for driving under low bridges or to get the remote back from under e sofa.

It is a low lying tank.

Quoting Shawn Purkis Over all it looks good, I like the wide and low aspect of it and the small simplistic turret. only complaints are a lack of treads and a mini-fig can't fit, but those can be easily fixed.
I might be able to fix the cockpit thing.

A little falt for my taste, one brick of height would have given it an aweosme bulk. But if this is made as a recreation of a Halo tank, I have nothing to say - never played, probably never will.
