Gentlemen! It gives me great pleasure to present you my latest SW MOC: Confederate MTT! ) :sweet:  :thumbup:
How could such a great CIS fan as me, not make one? )  :tongue:
First of all I must say, that I made it as I see it: that is I did not base it on the one shown in CW cartoon. I never liked their variant, with those ghastly-looking pale blue markings..... I think it looks "sick". )  :sick:
I tried to make my version to have a mighty look, to give you a certain impression, that's it's a vehicle to be taken into account on the battlefield. )  :classic:

General look:

CIS insignia:

Front round door and cannons:

Side door with CIS markings:

Wat Tambor: General Pingvin, I present you our laterst modification of the MTT.....
General Pingvin: Thank you, I might need one soon. )  :wink:

Bonus:

Remember those awesome droid gunners from CW cartoon? )


Posted Image

So, I decided to include my version of them in this topic. How can an MTT come without an AAT at its side? ) :sweet:

I really love all of it, but especially your custom CIS leader.

The mini figs (not the droids) are those custom bodies?
It's all part of the plan....

Good job :thumbup:

MTT looks good in grey and your Wat Tambor looks really awesome.

I think you did a great job choosing these colors instead of the CW cartoon version,
the result is astonishing  :wub:

Well done on the custom minifigure Wat Tambor, I guess now TLC will have to take notice that they missed out on this. But then again, we can still look forward to one in the future...

Just a question; what sets did you sacrifice to build this beauty?

Wonderful work again, Penguin!  :sweet:

I can't find a single fault with anything. The MTT looks great and well-proportioned between the colours, and those BDs look magnificent!

Very well done!  :thumbup:

No sets in paticular. A penguin is a wise bird: has something in each of multiple nests. So I gathered the required parts and made it. Note, that I changed some details according to my taste. )  :sweet:

No, of course, I didn't use any pen or things like that. I used special minifigure paint (I used to paint and play Warhammer a lot :wub: ), that can be found in any Games Workshop store. )

Hi Pinguin,

nice color scheme.  :thumbup:
It looks quite a lot like the brown 7662 Link to brickset 7662.
Actually its almost a copy in terms of brick location and details.
So is it more like a MOD of that set? I.e. change the color scheme?
Or did you do something fundamentally different?
I like it nonetheless.  :classic:
Kind regards,

Teddy

Yes, indeed, I used the old brown one as a base for mine. I changed the colors, some minor details, decorations and patterns. ) Plus, I modifyed the front and back doors, made it a bit higher and a stud longer. For some reason, I didn't take pictures of the inside compartments, but there I made a cargo space where a speeder was supposed to be. )  :classic:
Thank you, once again. )
