Hi all, I made a new buggy, changing the design of the old one.

This time, it's not a military vehicle, so I think this is the right place for it :-$ .

The new version includes a lighter chassis, a roll cage, and a big motor:

I also included an useful medi-kit; in reality, I didn't know how else to use that space under the front tubes :-D

Oh, and for imperialshadows, I changed the wheels to a more reasonable configuration ;-) .

More pics here.


Comments and criticisms are welcome.

That´s a very fine front design, and the roll cage and motor´re looking awesome as well!  :'-) The medi-kit´s a good idea, too.  *y*

Thanks for the positive comments, Asuka :-$


Unfortunately, this thread seems not to be very appealing :'-(

Well, I'll try better next time :-)

Don't blame yourself for that, blame Maj.com instead because their server is down, that way I can not see your buggy although I'm curious to see it.

When it's back on I'll return and give some proper feedback.

Well, it seems Maj.com is back online, the conspiracy ends here...  ;-)

What a nice buggy, it looks really complicated with the whole frame made up from all kinds of tubular pieces.
I have the same wheels you used as front wheels somewhere in my collection, I haven't used them for ages although they are very nice. Good work on the rear hubcabs as well!

Are those Bionicle arms, used in the roll cage and up front? They are integrated well in combination with the headlight.

Just think this is the tirst time I try a rollcage *tongue* ; fortunately, I found great inspiration on BS and I got good ideas from Chuck's works, too *thumbup*

The front arms are Bionicle/ExoForce arms (from the 8112 set), and the idea of putting there the headlight came during the construction. Indeed, I'm very happy with what I got there.

Thanks, Iamded *blush*

I think every brick has a good use; the problem, sometimes, is finding out what it is *tongue*

I can see!  *laugh*

What a wonderful buggy Luxor! *wub*  I'm going to have to agree with everyone on that rollcage, it's beautiful! *wub*

The new wheels fit it very nice, I wasn't too hot bout the old ones. *sceptic*

Thanks, Exobuilder *blush*

The old one was just something I built in 15 minutes, THIS one I planned for a week or so, before even starting the build *wink* .
