My attempts at making vehicles for my army

Postby pesgores » Tue Mar 31, 2009 7:41 am

Artillery-like armored vehicle

Truck for deploying troops on the battlefield

Attack buggy

I am not satisfied with these because:
6-They are expensive
7-The design could be better, but I don't know how to do it

I'd say they get better the farther down the post they are.

The artillery vehicle's gun seems kind of like it juts out of nowhere. You might want to put another 2x1 brick behind it so it connects more with the rest of the vehicle.

I really like the other two, though. I might do away with the buggy's passenger seats and raise the side walls, but that's more a matter of preference than anything. What don't you like about their design?

the first one i have to say is bad.
try more trucklike design with the cab at the front then a large gun on a turntable and hinge for movement.
I've just made one to show you its uploading to factory now.

I tried doing like you said. I Don't understand what you're trying to say about the artillery, what you say seems impossible, but I've done those changes in the buggy:

I've made it shorter and added 2 mounts for each side. Also, you can see a regular trooper's gun can fit into the mounts so I guess it is clever there.

Looks cool. But may be very expensive.

Is it even uploadable to the Factory website?

Nevermind. I didn't notice that the artillery was connected so it would pitch up and down.

I don't use the LDD factory, is it the same price if you ordered the pieces from Lego directly without going throug the factory? Alternatively, why not find some cheap sets & modify them with peieces you can order from Lego?

LDD is damned expensive. Just order parts from Bricklink, and use those in addition to what you already have in your collection to make the vehicles in reality.

LDD was affordable before April 2009.

I kind of don't like lego factory because its too expensive, Its great if you got
$1000 to spend, but you are only paying extra for the service of them having to customize these sets for you

The buggy is definitely my favorite. The one thing I would change about it would be to raise the gun turret in the back so that you can fire over the heads of the passengers rather than through them. It's ok if the gunner has to stand
