*PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATES*

It's big, it's mean, and it's a floating machine!
That's right, my hover fleet has gained a tank! (At the expense of the car)



The turret's a little out of proportion with the body, but other than that I'm really happy with it.

The rear of this plastic monster (This is huge for me)

The multi-fanned underside

Skirt detail

Skirt detail

The interior (you can bet this will be updated)

That's all I've got for now. Please let me know what you think, and what could be improved. I'd be happy to take ideas for the turret's interior!
Thanks for stopping by, and check out my photostream for more!

Good work. Only things I can see that need changing is the brown on the sides and the cup/chalice in the front.

The brown is supposed to be there. It's baggage, ammunition, etc. lashed onto the tank's skirts. As for the main gun, work will commence soon. Do you have any suggestions?

Just take that cup off and add on another of the bley tube pieces that you have the barrel made of.

I think it looks too tall, but I really don't have much of a suggestion for you. I would either a) take off some from the sides to flatten it, or b) add more to the sides to make it wider.

Add Vents for air to flow through the fans?
It's not out of proportion, it's Chibi.

@Zombie Alita That's one way to look at it Laughing But how would you suggest adding air intakes?

@Zombie Dragon What exactly do you mean? It's not the turret's width that's the problem. it's the height.

@Zombie Fett I've already replaced the main cannon. I've opted for the more popular Railgun design.

Larger tank bed top side intakes with grilles. But nevermind, maglev or other anti-grav drives don't need intakes.

(Plz post in BCS for your complimentary "nom")

Bah, do you think I'm that gullible? Wink
So a sort of raised section, possibly composed of slopes and grilles, added onto the skirts?

I'm almost tempted to take that complimentary 'nom'. Survivors have been doing awful lately...

Anywho, you people came to see the lovely version two of my plastic box.



The air intakes are awful, but I'll be looking for a way to change them in the future.

Railgun'd

interior'd

interior'd... again!

railgun'd up close

There you have it, Version Two of my beloved hover tank. Hope this one's considered an improvement. Please tell me what you think, and thanks for stopping by!

Well, I had meant that I thought the whole thing was too tall, the turret looked fine to me. It still looks a little tall for me.

I'm afraid there's not much I can do about the height without completely overhauling the MOC.

Neat tank, although indeed somewhat chibi-looking.. Wink

I like the greebling, it's - as usual with your MOCs - rich and detailed. Messy, could someone say, but I like the style.

The tank would indeed look better if it was lower, but if that's impossible to execute, I'd suggest making the body longer, perhaps even a bit wider. The turret could be placed more to the center top of the main body, too, rather than in the front.
Thus it wouldn't resemble a duck that much.. Razz

The duck look is to pave the way for my 'Mallard Disguise' version.

I just might try elongating it after all the requests that have been made for it.

Version three is now in!



Now lengthened, as requested.

This one makes me laugh

Zzap!

side 1

side 2

If you want to see more, you can cruise my photostream, as that's all of passing interest. If you have any suggestions on how to improve my beloved tank, please let me know. Thanks for stopping in, and post your thoughts!

I must say I prefer your original to the revamps, but that's just me. Nice tank, love the details.
