My upgraded TX-130 Fighter Tank!

Post by astoriabluelegos on Mon Nov 24, 2008 10:08 pm

I got the TX-130 Fighter Tank, and it really does look fantastic! However the interior leves a lot to be desired, so I modified mine, freeing up space for more Troops and cargo, so here is my modified TX-130. Wink

An overview:


Gunner station:


Back hatch open:


The interior:

Nice! I was wondering when you were gonna post it...

As awesome as this is, I think I am gonna pass on it, there is just too many stickers for me to mod it to blue... Razz

Looks good ABL! But I assume the mechanism is now gone right?

Wow, so nine clones can fit on that puppy? Really nice. Hola Wow!

I don't feel like taking out the mechanism just yet; I actually kinda like it.

Nice work! Smile

Thanks! Maybe on another one, I want to keep the exterior of this one original. Wink @80-0:Actally it'll hold 7 Clones, including the gunner, and I kept the mechanism for another application, it really is quite ingenius in design. Smile Blue Arc

It would raise the gunner from the cockpit up to his station, and open the hatch in the process, it also could lock in the "down" position if you wanted to keep the gunner inside the tank. Smile Blue Arc

Good design ABL. I'm sure I'll do the same if I ever get one! Roll Eyes Mad I still can't really see how it holds 7 clones though?

You still didn't shorten it to half the size...

Other than that it's awesome. Razz

The TX-130 is over twice the size it needs to be. Although we all know Lego did it so they could sell CW clones in it... Roll Eyes

It's a little wide if you can see that. The most notable trait though is its height. The TX in the Star Wars universe was MUCH smaller than TLC version. When I get my tank I'll probably have to find away around to mod that...

I still want to see a reference pic.

Besides, why is having something bigger a problem aside from the price?

Take a good look at that and tell me it doesn't make Lego's TX-130 look like a behemoth...
