GAT - Ground Armored Tank

Pieces: 197

Minifigs: 0

From Wookieepedia:

The Ground Armored Tank (GAT) was a light tank used in the early Clone Wars by the Confederacy of Independent Systems as a light attack tank. It was rivaled by the Republic TX-130 Saber-class fighter tank. It was built by Baktoid Armor Workshop and, like many Separatist vehicles, the GAT was piloted by an integrated droid brain. While it was capable of performing a variety of tasks, the GAT excelled as a reconnaissance and fast-attack craft, due to its light armor.

After I played the levels from the SW Battlefront 2 conversion pack and heard about this contest, I knew I had to make this! It was a challenge staying under the piece limit for the Small category, but I am quite happy how it turned out. Please let me know what you think and what I can still improve. Thanks!

I also like the way you used the blue-ish bricks to make it look like it hovers.

Cant think of any improvements... :laugh:

When I first saw this I fought it really looked like the TX-130 and I was suprised when you compared the two.

I think it looks really good and great use of those technic pieces :thumbup:

The Cannons looks quite good also. Good luck!

I am speechless by the engine mechanism and it's defintely one of the nice looking design factor which has been taken to consideration. Good use of the trans-blue 1x2 bricks, to illustrate the elevation power from the turbine engine. Very nicely done! :thumbup:

Great MOC! Firstly it looks very accurate and the colours look nice. You have really made this MOC well. Secondly I didn't know anyone else here played SWBFII with the Conversion pack. (I personally prefer BFX 2.2 mod though). Great work :thumbup: .

Thanks for the kind words, guys! :cry_happy:

So, there is nothing I can improve, not even on the thread?

My only problem is the grey/bley mix

Well, if you look at the reference pics, the original doesn't consist of the exact same color all-over either. :wink: Besides, I always think that this type of combination gives a MOC a kind of used/battle-damaged/camouflaged look.

Wow this is really a great Moc, well done! I love the little 1x2 blue transclear pieces you put in to resemble a sort of Air Thrust, really nice detail! Great job!

Nice model Oky Wan, it's a really interesting design and you've captured the shape of it really well - good job! It's a vehicle I'm unfamiliar with but it looks great in LEGO.

I see an interesting side effect in your lighting giving the bley a greenish tinge, much like the colour scheme in your reference images - looks pretty cool!
