The final piece count is about 650, varying with whatever you decide to add (like the seats, wheel, chains). If you remove the arms, you can fit two minifigs comfortably in there! I'm not going to edit this anymore, but feel free to make improvements!
Thanks to KielDaMan for adding this to the LDD Index! Eurobricks is the only forum or website that I've posted the instructions, so it's an exclusive to this site. :)
Something I'd like to point out is that eventually this thing should get stickers. Also, it doesn't have spikes and skulls all over it because this is supposed to be a sneaky smuggling truck, not trying to draw attention to itself :) (although I did add spikes to see how it looks xD )
Mar.5th - FINAL FINAL FOR REALZ (haha)
-NEW! Added an engine under the hood and interior to the cab! It's powered by pure evil! I guess that engine powers the lights and communication stuff, the 6 massive engines outside are only for propulsion.
-Front cannons are now realistically possible to build and have been attached with a slightly sturdier connection to the Truck (used two 4081 instead of one 60470)
-Added some very basic inverted slopes and plates to reinforce the underside of the whole Truck
-Fixed the Container a little more, now the lid should only attach with 4 studs, making it much easier to remove
-Added black dishes to the backside of the engines as a final touch (and so you can attach fire)
-Switched two 1x2 Bley plates behind the grill with one 2x2 to add strength to the grill
-The rear-view mirrors are actually fairly adjustable, you can even slide the bley axe-pick in or out to let the mirrors see past the container's engine pieces.
-The container's top is now easily removable (in real life)
-Added a handle to the container's rear door, and a tile to keep it from hinging all the way into the container
-Added slopes to the cab's roof cuz I felt like it lol.
-Added rear-view mirrors!
-Tweaked colors from official prototype.
-The interior of the cab needs to be built, that's up to you.
-Small space under hood to add whatever you want, the bley cylinders and studs there aren't vital.
-Container is kinda weak without the lid on. Connects to flatbed with 2 pins (still working on it)
-Underside needs reinforcement (you can add a bunch of plates and it'll be good, I reckon.)
I intended this to be a community project where everyone can jump in and modify it, but meh, I realize not everyone has the free time to mess with it. So here's what I have so far. It's accurate.
-I took liberties with the underside of the rockets, there's supposed to be something trans neon green under there, the disks are pretty.
-Container will attach to the flatbed with pins
-The 2x2 gray circle on the end of the rockets is supposed to be the spinning part of a 2x2 turntable, I don't know how to separate the piece in LDD though.
-I'll make changes once I build the whole thing, like better guns in front, etc.
