MOC: SWAT Truck
Posted 03 April 2009 - 11:10 PM
When I decided to build a SWAT truck, I noticed that most real-world designs are pretty ugly. They're flat black and tend to look like delivery trucks. For inspiration, I turned to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City's SWAT truck design, which is significantly more attractive. I took some liberties, of course, making it look a bit meaner and tougher, but you can still see the influence.
Also, I tend to neglect play value in favor of aesthetics, but this model's actually pretty good in that regard. The side and back doors open and the roof comes off to see the inside. Two figs fit comfortably in the cab and you could cram a bunch of troopers either standing or sitting in the back.
The model's also 7-wide at most points. I love building at odd widths! This has the benefit of making it large compared to modern 6-wide LEGO city vehicles, but not comically oversized.

I agree, This is probable the best LEGO SWAT truck I've ever seen.
I might have to try and make it. Also I agree that odd numbered cars look better. But im hopeless at building them. Probable 'cos I dont have many 3x1 plates/bricks ect...or other oddnumbered bricks.
Anyway I love it dude, great work. Also it does look like the one from GTA
