That is awesome!! I was wondering where you where the past few days. Wink Very detailed. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. Looks like your now a pro builder Rook. Why not become a Lego set designer for LEGO? Razz

Looks guild worthy to me. Laughing

Wow Rook, this is epic. It looks a lot like the tank in halo. Ug whats it name...
The one thing I dont like about it is this gap.

If you could fix it, then it would be that much better. Wink

One thing I noticed, some of it is SNOTed but some of it isn't. I think you should have either the same amount between the two, or have it all SNOT, or all non-SNOT.

I could but I think it'll square up the corners too much. I'll give it a shot once I've fixed the minifigure issue.

You do realized that SNOT means studs not on top (which means studs pointing up)!? The LEGO sets that aren't SNOT now days are the Duplo & bucket sets. Wink So basically if you have any piece not pointing "up" it is SNOT. So I'm not sure where/what exactly you mean. :scratch: To build this all SNOT would be next to impossible. I have to use a turret piece what would rotate 360 degrees on it's side, since no studs could be pointing up. And using that piece would be lame since the piece I used actually allows the gunners head to be inside the base of turret. Wink

I mean, there are studs that are sticking up on top, but only in a few spots.

Cool! I like how you didn't just make two long tread wheels. I like the canon from what I can see. Great job! Laughing

For some reason it seems reminiscent of Star Wars Empire at War, anyway the tank looks great I think the Gaps in the armor are fine considering it brings realism to it due to it being close to the wheels. Similar to the flaps on a semi-truck if I may.

Ah studless. That makes sense. Yeah I didn't. Embarassed Which makes it beatable. Wink So start building! 😁

Thank you very much. I thought I would just be unique that way. Doesn't mean I still won't take a picture to show the other way too. Razz

This is a perfect example of what I want to see. Big and bulky like a tank, but elegant and with sleek curves. Smile

I know the above folks bumped it a little, but since it's up here I'll just take a moment to say this is the reason I'm not entering. I really enjoy it Rook. The design is awesome, the shapes are well pulled off. One of my favorite creations from you! There's just something about it that works so well.
