Hey all, this is the newest build off of the shelf! Not sure how many of you ever played the rts computer game Tiberium Sun (or any of its many mods and versions such as the all awesome Kane's Wrath expansion), but this is the Nod Tic Tank from the original game (give or take a few modifications of my own). I had a myriad of difficulties and challenges putting this guy together so that it could transform from a tank to a turret (like in the game). Way too many moving and rotating parts for my previous comfort zone, but any advancement in challenge overcoming in the Lego creation world is forward progress for me.
I liked the set-up "turret" mode of this tank a lot better than the "tank" position, so I just made this the main picture.
Here's a bit of the undercarriage with the engine and exhaust system.
And yeah, the turret rotates ;)
I'd be great to hear from you TS fans out there, let me know if you've got other build ideas from the Tiberian Sun game series and I'll see if I can get to them sometime or 'nother.
*GASP!* Dude, this is so ironic; we both just posted a tank! And whoa, does yours look great! I looked up the Tic Tank and this really does resemble it! Great job on the structure of this MOC, with the Technic pieces. Excellent work, buddy! God bless! 5/5! :-)
