The second incarnation of the MBT, it gets a fifth roadwheel, with the rear three roadwheels reinforced to carry the load of the turret and engine, and updated suspension system, a bigger gun and a bigger turret. The engine gets switched back to a diesel one in a raised rear compartment. In general, it looks like a cross between T-55 and Leopard 1 tanks.
About this creation
The rear with spare tracks hung on exhaust pipes
There is a gun holder, in this position the tank is ready for longer drives when it doesn't need to turn the turret
The large engine and exhaust pipes
Turret. Two hatches with vision blocks, one for the commander and one for the gunner.
Epic suspension. took me time to develop
PULL THE BRAKES!!!1!
BONUS BUILD: A TINY SUPPLY JEEP
Seats two minifigs, no cheating, plus an interrior
I clicked into here by accident, and was about to go back when realized this was awesome! And you wern't kidding when you said "epic susspension"! Unlike many things on the internet, this was worth the time. 5/5, keep up the great work!
Quoting Matthew Sylvan The next step is to make it mono-color with some other colors for smaller details.
I don't think it will ever be uni-colour. I simply don't have enough tiles or pieces of the same colour. But I am working toward making colour groups (here the front is grey and the back black, with turret of both colours).
The little MBT is growing up! It's a great little tank I love to see it being improved upon. I have my own tank I'm posting soon, and you've inspired me to try and make my own suspension for it...if I can figure out how.
Awesome tank! Great details all over, and a very cool shape. Indeed, it looks partly inspired by russian tanks. It would be cool to see it in a camo-scheme. But even without the camo it is a seriously cool build, better done than any of my own threaded vehicles. Oh, cool little jeep too :-)
great tank! these tracks are in my opinion the best choice for that scale, it just looks fab! is there a reason why all 5 wheels are nt the same model? the suspension looks and acts realisticly, bravo!
