Knoutloch . A steampunk tank of sorts, built for a contest. . Real Lego? It's so weird! I know! Anyway, let's see... I built this for Lego's Exoforce contest, in which it placed fourth at best, ie. not at all. (I probably strayed too far from the theme). Its name stems oddly enough from two English words, and is pronounced NOUT-lock: knout, a cat o' nine tails; and loch, a lake. So, like, a lake o' whips. Sounds pretty cool, I think.
The left arm wields a rapid-firing harpoon cannon, with rotating barrel action. Also notice a variety of air filters, the magazine slide protruding from the top and bottom, and the cluster of small tanks near the back.
Side view of the same weapon, showing the large ribbed hose that supplies firing pressure.
Front view, with headlights, pilot, and the turbines large and small which power Knoutloch's various systems.
Rear view of the furnace, which burns onebytwoium as fuel- or just about anything else. The turret is capable of turning 360 degrees on its treaded base.
More furnace. Go ahead and marvel at my terrific use of ball joints, a minifig wineglass, and assorted droideca tubing. This is one of my favorite parts.
And finally, the bunker buster missile armament. Messing around with those two cannons accounts for half of the reason I built the thing.
And that's all my photos! So regardless of how much you liked it, too bad! No more!
