908th D/mc/db is gone? It has been replaced! SUPER NEW!

Post by Pandascide on Sun Mar 16, 2008 6:33 pm

Okay The 908th Dropship/Command post/ defensive base was a no go but in less than 24 hours I have whipped up another Base/ vehicle! This one is only a Command post/ Defensive base It can hover up in the air and than get pulled to an acclamator cruiser in the sky to get mor supplies etc. On my old one there was a huge defensive platform on this one, it is much smaller. Nicknamed the upside down D by Seps because it was an upsidedown D. The only Maroon on it is the front, to intimidate groups of rebelious civilians by making them think it is a huge sheet of blood! Last few pics are a teaser for you feturing the 908th TX-130 and the 908th AT-QRW(All terrain quick reconnaissance walker)Enjoy! Smile Also the holes by the top arn't Really there but in order to open it up they need to be there. Wink


Overall Veiw of this Huge Urban Control Tank.


Top Platfrom MUCH SMALLER! Shocked

Pilots.



Back door open, they are facing backword to back up and go... BEEEP... BEEEP... BEEP Razz



Side door open. There are two of them.



Vehicles out in the open.



Inner platform for Clones and the Jedi.



Vehicles heading out along with some Clones from the Side.



Picture of the Cast. WOOOOOOT! Wink

WARNING!!! HERE COME THE TEASER PICS I DON'T KNOW WHY YOU DO NOT WANT TO SEE THEM BUT THIS IS A WARNING!!! Hola Wow!



The battle begins...




Battle Drioid-"TX-130 Dead ahead!"



Locked and Loaded... "They didn't call in the Heavy Assault Squadron For nothing."


Here comes some info from Pandascide! Roll Eyes This is kinda based on the HAV/r A9 Floating Fortress but I guess mine is A1! I got a little of the wall design from Phillip Morgan's HAV/r A9 Floating Fortress! You can see that here.

I like it much better than the first! I actually like the shape; it looks like a strong heavy slow armored repulsor tank. Smile

Agreed completely. It just needs some turbolasers on the side for taking on MTTs, should it encounter one. And this can get airborne, no? That gives it the advantage over MTTs, being able to shoot down on them. Smile Good job, and I like the TX-130! Yellow

A hundred times better and your tank looks great. I'm seeing some building styles change. Looks like you're getting better. Smile

The only things I would change are:
The 2 small circles on the left there are some corners sticking up. And the circle on the right there's a large gap. Also maybe move the dark red to the sides like pin strips vs. just the big red square that they form now. I also copy and pasted 2 logos but you probably just don't have enough.

Well, I don't think he can help the corners unless he wanted to taint a Lego brick! Surprised

The gap on the top, as he said, isn't really there but it has to be there in order for it to open. Wink

Also, as Rook said, it'd be good to have red stripes on the side trickling down and some stripes on the front to look like they're trickling down. Wink Like Sev's helmet and armor. Marine

Ok, first yes the you don't need to chop the brick to make the corner disappear. Here are a few options: Move the pieces that are causing the corner, use another piece, or make the corner work by rebuilding the roof to match it's shape.

Second the gap on the top for it to open. Look at the gap here:



And here:



I can pretend that something is solid if it has a small crack and I can see inside. However if you can fit a minifig into to the opening, then it's open. If that's his intent then great, but it didn't look like it.

I would also suggest filling in the gaps, otherwise a droid could lob in a detonator, and BOOM! Bye, bye heavy tank! Wink Blue Arc

It was again VERY boxy.. and you might want to change some plates, a bit less red on the front and a bir more on the sides. I do like your TX-130. Smile

I swear, I always learn something from your posts! Laughing

You're right, he can easily use several 1x6, 1x8, 1x10, 1x12, etc. bricks to make it a bit more contoured.

Anyways, I now think that gap could be made smaller by a few plates put on the top. He'll just have to try several strategies out to see what works... Fordo Yo!

I have a question to Pandascide: You say the Saber tank is yellow because it matches the 908th Legion, correct? Then why doesn't your lander have yellow on it? :scratch:

P.S. An easy way to get more yellow is in the new Jedi Starfighter of Anakin! (which I own as of yesterday Razz )

Why thank you Rook! But I could fix the corners by using other pieces but I was too lazy to find them. Waaa!

Why don't I put yellow on my big ol' tank. The TX-130 is yellow becaus of Grafiti! Laughing But really, when they were "handing out legion colors" the yellow TX-130 was the only one left and they had last rights. Wink

OK! That's cool! And since one doesen't often see a painted hovertank, one wouldn't often see a painted troop carrier/tank. Still a great job! You do the interiors well, almost as good as Rook! Smile

My only issue with that however is how thick the walls would become, which would add weight. ALSO Roll Eyes well I have enough but i can never get them on quite... straight. Waaa!
