Tie Mauler

Post by 80-0 on Thu Mar 20, 2008 2:48 pm

I'm at a stand still and I need some advice on how to form the tread-frames. I have a bunch of ideas but they don't seem to work out. Once I have the tread-frame the rest should follow. Smile

Also, the Tie Mauler has triangular treads and it is a quarter of the size of the Tie Crawler in realistic dimensions. It has... Oh heck, just look it up on Wookiepedia. Razz

I would stick with 2 of those corner plates also found on the TIE crawler, with some wedges underneath. Try to have the same build as a TIE Crawler, than it would be study AND nice.

I'd use technic pieces for the tread frames for strength, then use standard parts for detail, kinda like on the tank droid. Wink Blue Arc

I know, I'm using the pieces from the Crawler. DP, can you be more specific as to wedges? And what corner plates do you mean? You've left me rather confused... :scratch:

ABL, I do plan to use the SOT technic pins to get some plates on the outside for that same Tie Crawler look. Smile

Starting with a Tie Crawler is a good idea, if you've ever built the Crawler (which I assume you HAVE) I'd try to use the same techniques the set used for the tread housings, since the Mauler's are pretty much the same, just a different shape. Wink Blue Arc

Try these twice and add this one. Also add some plates. Then you have the side panels you need.

It was going to be for a ice planet scene. But I never built it. Not enough white pieces back then.

But is it meant to be snow or just a white Mauler?

It seems I misspoke. I know what bricks to put on the outside, but what goes on the inside is what I need to figure out.

ANYWAY, I got an idea of what to do and I built it. I also put the plates on the outside, and now I look it up on Wookiepedia and instead of being a triangle with a cut off top it's a full triangle. But I've got the idea as to what to do for now.

Also, Rook, that ain't half bad at all! Shocked

This is Rook we're talking about. Anything less than absolute perfection is burned. I'm surprised he still has pictures. Wink

Ha! Thanks. Yep, there's almost always a reason for me doing something. I try to live life like I play chess: "Always a few steps ahead." Having worked in a dbl. max prison you learn to plan ahead, about everything, incluing building "toys". Wink
