IG-227 Hailfire-class droid tank
About this creation






The first and most challenging thing to solve was the wheel rings, because they would lock in the rest of the design.
Since the selection of round hollow rings of Lego is are extremely limited, I chose to just build them instead using 2x3 Plates interweaving between round 1x1 plates, which has enough tolerance to bend and create a curve to form a ring with the right dimensions.

Due to the nature of this design there is a small amount of flex. The weight will flatten the lower part of the wheels just a bit, which means The model won't roll easily.
Anyway since this is not a playset it's not really a big deal to me.
The model is about 50% too large to be minifig scale

It's a fun build for sure and looks great on the shelf.

This is really well designed. A proper system Hailfire droid. If I didn't have the technic one and this was a set, I'd definitely get one, although I am curious if the wheels would be sturdy enough. There is one big problem I have, and that is with your lighting, it is a bit dark. I'd go for either more light, or a different color background.

I'm guessing the next one to be one of the following: Droid gunship, spider droid, or a corporate alliance tank droid. Also great build!
