The first (completed) creation of my new blacksmith series. i want this theme to be inspirable like dawn forge, cave racers, etc. I have 3 other blacksmith creations in the making and 1 has been in progress for about a month.
The very long barrel which is just about 21 studs long.
The seat... how exciting... this is what you sit in... with extra protection on the sides! ...
The front wheel extends to increase height... a nice, feature, it can also roll away!
sooo... the wheel moves up for no sliding
The ammo chamber underneath (which does not actually go in past 2 studs)
Ammo types from left to right: mini cryo bomb, power drill, spike shell, power rod, incendiary bombs, drill bomb, cluster bombs, and normal explosive shells. you'll probably have to view full size image to actually see them.
Power rods are usually shot high so they land more vertically. have you ever dropped from like, 6 feet and landed on something hard? that's what these do. they hit the ground at high speed and create a massive shockwave that mainly cripples all nearby soldiers. if you can't imagine that, then... you can't understand this.
Drill bombs have 2 spinning saw blades that are activated after launch. the bomb on the back (grey part) detonates 0.3 seconds after contact so drill goes through engine, bomb is directly in center of engine, bomb blows up inside engine and destroys tank (er whatever)
