RTT-21's are a three section wheeled transporters used to transport dangerous liquids through rough terrain. They are named as a 'Caterpillar', beacuse they are usually painted green and articulated chassis makes that its move is similar to catterpillar's.

The cabin is taked from one of the 4 Juniors sets, 4653
It has an awful pattern on front, so I rotated it on the back. It looked better, but there was no room for whole minifig. But his half fits perfectly ;)

The tanks for transportnig those dangerous liquids are made from white Airtanks:

Each section have a pendular suspension, that provides great stability when vehicle is moving through obstacles.

A fascinating work with an interesting use of a 4 Juniors part and these air tanks.
The vehicle looks very smooth and beautiful and the suspensionĀ“s very nice too.  :thumbup:
