It's finally here! My first creation in a while and my biggest ever, Technically Deadly II is a vast improvement over its predecessor.
About this creation
The newer incarnation of the Andruian Military's flagship war machine is an improvement in every way over the original . The new version, instead of having an ion engine, is powered by old fashioned diesel engines. Each massive cylinder produces around a thousand horsepower. The Andruian engineers made the change to take advantage of their planet's ridiculously abundant and therefore cheap fossil fuels. If you saw the original you know the story behind its name. When you turn the large jet on the back:
- the machine guns rotate
- the other two jets spin
- all four pistons pump
- everyone is impressed.
The Andruian Military has taken to supplying every pilot with their own hangar, usually located next to their homes. In this garage, the soldiers can perform repairs, maintenance and even modifications to their fighters. This is a standard, government issued garage that can be mass produced fairly cheaply. It is equipped with a diesel fuel tank to refuel a soldier's spacecraft which is connected by pipes to the nearest fuel reserve. The actual model has a working rolling garage door lift, powered by Power Functions. Also PF: the spinning turbine on the side of the tower that houses the battery box.
Great stuff! I really like the incorporation of technic and motor elements into this MOC to give it extra action - must have taken a lot of time to get it working and looking good, well done! You've got me thinking about what could go into my next ship...
