The Badger MKII

Postby Almighty Benny » Sat Jan 12, 2008 1:30 pm

Now that I bought a new camera battery and memory card I can start taking pictures of my models again. Here's a tank I built over the summer called the B.A.D.G.E.R. Tank MKII. (Bad-Ass Dominant Godlike Emergency Response)

Wait, that kind of window can offer cover? Lights on the back? What kind of madness are you trying to instill?

The only real question I have to ask is how well it turns.

Well I was worried about that cockpit, too. It used to have a better one but I put that on a mech instead, and then took it off the mech and put it on another tank. The pilot is pretty much covered up except for small holes on either side of his head, but no part of him is exposed. I think about 8 people fit in the back (more if you just cram them in there instead of trying to seat them), and they're all completely covered.

No matter how much destruction my vehicles inflict, they will always, ALWAYS obey the rules of the road. Remember kids, seat belts save lives!

And to answer your question, it turns in much the same way a log turns. (not well).

I almost dropped my eyes when I saw that beauty. It's more than amazing. It's amazing multipled by hundred thousand. It's propably the most beautiful tank I have ever seen. EVER.

I mean, it has a rotating top turret, 4 big guns, treads, giant wheels, room for 8 people.. what else can you ask?

i bet putting a steering system in wouldn't be ridiculously hard. slap two of those 2x2 swivels onto the front treads, and then add a bracing pole in between them so they turn at the same rate? instant power steering. and by power steering, i mean you're steering power.

This thing is amazing. It looks like it could wipe out my whole army by running them over and then perform a sick-ass gliding maneuver.

I daresay not. Bricks is described as for "Creations, construction techniques, and news from the world of plastic toys" so this would fit in as a creation.

Ah yes, I too think the colours are amazing. Not the colours themselves, but the fact that you have so much dark gray. The mech I built yesterday is red, dark red, black, tan, yellow, dark gray, light gray, white, and yellow. It looks like a piece of rainbow. But you wonderful creation is gray, silver, and black with enticing accents that look awesome. Not to mention the kick-ass gun.

OMG.....*sniff* that’s the most beautiful tank I have ever seen. It’s just amazing!! It’s only missing one thing. A blunt shooter, just because they look awesome.

And the fact that you have the correctly colored pieces to make it is awesome too! I made my tank almost the same color, but some pieces I just don’t have in black...only yellow, which annoys me to no end. If I can ever get a digital camera ill post of picture of my tank.
If I have to chose between surrender and death, ill take death. Cause I get to take a few of you down with me.

It's funny that yellow seems to be the most common color of piece, and yet, red is the color of the official LEGO 2x4.

:shock: Wow, that makes my sealed-cockpit mech look like a plie of steaming excrement. (that’s poo, for the un-educated)
