I have made a small Star-Wars-MOC for this Contest. 95% of the bricks used in the MOC came from the two Star-Wars-Sets V-Wing Fighter (6205) and ARC-170-Starfighter (7259). I was inspiratet by the old dark gray \"bowparts\" used in the front. The final work looks a litlle bit like a AAT (ArmedAssaultTank).
It is 150 +- 10 Bricks.

In the Clone Wars the Republic noticed, that they needet a small tank, which is able to defend small villages on lonenly Planats without much troops.  So they developed an astromech-supportet anti-infantery one-man-tank. And this is a very cheap one, so also native troops can easily handle this one and defend there planets on there own, but, because it is so cheap, there is no high securety standart for the pilot: The cocpit only defends weak Blaster-fire, but who would dare to attack this extrem fast tank?

There are no useless bricks.

It looks like a good enrty, but resize.
Also, it looks like it is maybe a medium sized entry, but that may be just me.

Very good MOC! Looks like quite a sturdy tank

The pictures are good, except the front picture which is a little "off".
I suggest you redo that one, so that we can see the entire front of the vehicle.

Kill SpongeBob! Along with Ashoka, there should be a "kill a spongebob character" contest.
Certainly a good MoC, and the canopy lacking version is new, correct?

Yes! It's much better than your other pics! It would be good, though, if you would add another pic like that, but from the front, because as you know, the first pic in the post will be the one used to represent your MOC, and I don't think that you want your entry to be represented by a pic of the rear of it. :wink:
This is a very neat creation, especially considering that it's made out of around 150 bricks! :thumbup:

Now I'm off to have some OAT-meal. :grin:
