Empire At War was a lovely strategy and conquest game and the TIE Mauler is one of the many lovely things introduced in it. As you will probably know, it's an Imperial tank that was introduced several years before the Battle of Yavin. It was cheap to produce (like it's sucsessor the Century Tank or TIE Crawler.) and was piloted by a single specially trained stormtrooper. Together with its trio of anti-infantry laser cannons, hearty engine and heavy treads the Mauler was a swift yet lethal force on the battlefeilds of dozens of worlds during the early days of the Rebel Alliance. One of the great things about the TIE Mauler is the fact that it is fully capable of flattening entire platoons of enemy grunts, the second lovely feature is that they possess a self distruct mechanizsm in case the insane driver could kill more by dying than by living. Though picture quality does not allow you to see it, I did actually include the self destruct control guage. Oh, it's halfway red, better take a look at the pictures, drop a reveiw and RUNN!!
Oh, yeah Reference images compliments of Wookipedia.co-
Super job, man. Yes, I know what you mean about the self-destruct mechanism- my copy of EAW: Forces of Corruption has a small glitch that triggers vehicle abilities randomly. I'm moving along fine, conquering Wayland or wherever, and my Maulers suddenly red up and blow! Quietly frustrating, hey?
I digress. Great job on everything here!

Really cool recreation! The side urks me a bit, although I know that is a difficult factor in building this.
Hmm pretty nice, the treads don't look entirely accurate they seem to go up a little higher then they should, other than that the cockpit looks decent, I would've done the same thing for the front weapons; however, I don't have any of those grey lightsaber parts, not enough anyway. By the way you spelt "mauler" wrong.
