Hey Nat, before this topic devolved into :trollception:, you mentioned a brick link order arriving. Any progress on the Scorpion tank?

Because the image she is basing it on looks like a scorpion to me.

I have a finalized lower-leg design, complete with folding wheels. The upper leg is also good I think but I am having trouble coming up with a way to attach it to the body in a manner that is stiff but also provides enough articulation for it to walk. The guy who made the one shown here used ball joints for everything, but I don't have any of those so mine is going to be harder to design. I have spent hours working on the joints, but with very little progress. :( However, if I succeed, this could be the coolest thing I have built so far.

No, Spider Tanks in Ghost in the Shell come with wheel feet standard.

And yeah Goderator, I think your going to need some ball joints...
I don't know how you are going to get the right articulation with out them.

How big are you going to build it? Like tank-sized, jeep sized, or bigger? The size of the one you posted here?

Coolest thing you've built? That certainly is saying something. :brick:, indeed.

It will probably be a little smaller than the one shown here.

I have a ton of Technic parts. If I can do it with them it's going to be incredibly awesome.
