17thCMEF Prowler Tank Instructions

Postby halo 3000 » Sun Jul 29, 2012 6:33 pm

Hey guys. Took a break from building my walker to make some instructions for my Prowler Tank (credit goes to Jon Newsome)

Image

Image

First things first. You absolutely need these parts. the wheels you might could substitute, but it works best if you use those.

Image

Start with these. doesn't have to be Just like this, as long as it is 6x10

Image

again doesn't have to be exactly the same. just make it 4x10

Image

add another layer of 4x10

Image

Image

Image

build this, just a 4x6 with those plates on top

Image

Image

Image

Make 2 of these.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

These go on top of each other.

Image

End up with this

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

This is for the turret

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

sorry about it being blurry. just put a 1x2 on one of these hinge bricks.

Image

Contrary to what the picture shows, the black part of the hinge brick should be facing away from you.

Image

Build two of these.

Image

Image

again, do your own thing here if you want. doesn't have to be just like this.

Image

Make your own cannon if you want! Mine is just an example

Image

Now put the treads on like Bonn-o-Tron.

Image

Make two of these.

Image

Here is the back.

Image

Place these on, like so..

Image

Place the turret on and you're done!

Image

Enjoy your new tank!

also, If you need any more pictures let me know.

Okay - that is a damned awesome design - and I have the pieces do build it as well.

I may not use it in battle - but I think I will build a Scythian version of this at some point for the sake of awesome! :studgod:
