Bren Gun Carrier/ Universal Carrier

Post by PhiMa on Sat Apr 03, 2010 1:38 pm

...Missing just one thing

The Bren Gun Razz (In the makes by DarthPineapple at the moment, or we could see if BA is faster Razz) Otherwise, I think this is the most scale accurate Bren Gun Carrier I've ever seen made with lego...I'll still be changing some minor things when my Bricklink order arrives (Such as lowering the wheels by 1 stud to make the tracks move properly). Fits 6 figures (Two in the front, 4 in the back). My first Commonwealth vehicle Wow this thing looks

*Ahem* Now to a bit of history on this cute little Carrier Razz Built by Vickers Armstrong, the Bren Carrier was used for transporting personnel and equipment, mostly support weapons, or as machine gun platforms. Their Primary armarment was of course a Bren Gun, and it's engine was a ford V8. With 113000 models produced, it was the most numerous AFV in History.

Enjoy! Weapons By brickarms, of course. Backpacks were not cut by me either, but by Darthpineapple.

Amazing.
The vehicle is so great and detailed, and not just that but the backpacks are perfectly shaved and smooth (I gotta ask DP how he does it.)
Overall, great job, and I agree with you about it being one of the most scale Bren Carriers in LEGO. Smile Thumbs up

Another fine work of art PhiMa, probably the best bren gun carrier someone has built out of lego👍 . I have only one question:In the last photo, what weapon is the paratrooper holding Smile ? Well, here is something I want to tell you, I am trying to make some WWII figures maybe for a movie. So far, I have no minifigures done, I will have to bricklink alot, but I really want them to stand out from yours, but I cannot find any other torso other than the ones you have used to be accurate, so I was wondering if I could use the Indy torso's for my soldiers? I don't want to post them, I just want to have them so I can maybe make a funny movie with them, and I will give you credit for the design of the figs.

Pretty nice looking, a really decent build. The figs fit in great with the MOC too with those red berets! Smile

Tital Wave, that was a typo, I fixed it. Another reason for changing is because megablocks suck. Lego is light years ahead of them.

Why would you give PhiMa credit for an idea which is obvious and has been done 100 times before? He didn't even 'come up' with it.

I wouldn't be caught dead in one of those things it leaves you way to exposed to gun fire. With that out of the way the front is very accurate so I'll give you points for that and the shovel on the back is a nice touch.

Well, the (non-modding) combinations most people do is this:

Americans: Indy german torso with baronsat helmets
Germans: Dino 2010/ Dino Attack torsos with BrickForge helmets
Brits: Dovchenco (Indy line)

And of course all armed with BA.

Nitro, you can just order the berets on brickforge, they have a huge selection of colors and other Lego stuff, that is where you can German helmets, also.
