Wow, that's really good. It's also awesome that you have two of them. Do you have two sets of guns for them as well?

Naa, I just stuck the autocannon on the one I had just finished. I could make two no problem though.

I know you were a big fan of my other one. How does this one compare?

I can probably make some instructions for those who are interested.

I think for reasons you have already been indicating, I prefer these smaller ones. In retrospect, the other is a tad cumbersome, and does err on the side of being "too many things." It may function like an APC and a SDT, but likely did not do either of those well.

The smaller focus here is great, and I like the door designs a lot. Just keep the other as a SDT with a little more dakka or payload, and these would complement it nicely.

How is it that you always make awesome vehicles?

I dig it. Your whole army reminds me of the GDF from Command and Conquer, which is pretty cool.

Well, actually, I took it apart. It used a lot of parts that I needed in other things. I would even go so far to say it used more parts then both of my new designs.

If you dig through the forum to find some of the topics I made around 2008, you will find that my vehicles were very boxy. That was the most common criticism I got. You could say I overcompensated so I would never get the "boxy" criticism again. the result just happens to look pretty cool. I also think that I have decently high standards with my stuff. If I"m not completely happy with something, I'll start all over.

Thanks! C&C has greatly influenced me over the years.

Thanks! I currently do not have an overall photo. That's something I'm working on like Bonn-o-Tron. I took apart most of my vehicles besides my Titan (which I will never ever ever take apart) and my Prowler tanks. I'm currently working on a new Main Battle Tank that I think you guys will like. Just have to wait for my bricklink order to arrive. one I build some more vehicles I'll take an overall photo.

Upon seeing this thread again I feel the sudden urge to build a cross between this thing and the Noraxian peacekeeper APC.

Seeing as I have done some work on a peacekeeper hull already, I will keep you guys posted.
