Cottage Tank
They've made cottage cheese, I don't see why they shouldn't make cottage tanks. It adds charm and warmth to the battlefield.
About this creation
My entry for the 2012 MocAthalon Category: "Will it blend?"

No it won't.







All the roadwheels are sprung with rubber bands and levers. My current favorite tank set-up.









Uncompressed,









compressed.









Complete will real chimney action!









Okay, so I did literally pluck the cottage off the farm I'd built and lob it onto a tank chassis. I do things like that a lot, haven't you noticed?









Horspower: 600

Torque Peak: 1000

Top Speed: 50 (limited)














You can see here I've acquired some of the new technique gears. They're rubbish! They don't grip well to the axle, and more importantly: the old ones worked fine, so why did Lego waste money developing these!?? DX This is why Lego costs so much!!! Argh... (rant over)









I figured storing some canisters on the 'deck' would make it look more battleship-y.








Tanks for your viewing!

Super spiffy! :) I like the idea, it's very funny. I actually prefer the new 16t gears, they are never super hard to get off an axle. I also think they look better. This is one of my favorite of your creations.

And I thought making a mobile home armed with everything possible and making it a mobile battle platform was a good idea This tops the cake I have to admit.

ah, with this thing I wouldn't have to bother buying a house, a car, or any of my pyromaniacal desires (nukes, Vulcans, 300mm cannons, flamethrowers, etc.)! I'd have them all in one big bundle! why don't they build these things in real life?

funny! i would just suggest less studs on the tank turret to give it more of an armored look. some smoke grenade launchers or machine guns would look good too.

Here's the 1st weird thing that came into my head when I saw it... 'a few cheesy slopes and this thing would be a real cheesy tankin' cottage'! Anyhoo, Quirky Qool! :)
