Using the spanner (shown) it is possible to remove the cargo rack and replace it with seats for escorting "politicians" :devil:

It's well done, but I don't like the one tank track, seems like it would tip over too easily. The machine gun looks good, is it just made out of the jungle cutter?

Thanks Cole :sweet:

The tank is actually very stable, as the two heavy sections on either side of the track keep it balanced  :classic:

I like the gun too, I was just playing around with parts trying to make a machine gun design that (probably) hadn't been done before, and looked good.

Yes, it pretty much is the Jungle Cutter. I bought it on Saturday and, although I liked it, the design didn't appeal to me, and I needed the tracks anyway. I really only bought it for the tracks! :laugh:

Same with me the tank tracks were the main reason i bought the set , after i built it though i found there were plenty of other valuble pieces too.

Looks pretty good! Only thing I don't like is it looks like it's about to split in half in the first picture. Maybe try putting some sort of "covering" over top of the track inside the cab? Good work, overall.  :thumbup:

Thanks guys!

Glad you like the gun, Guss. :sweet:

I also heartily agree with you, Black Rabbit, all that DARK GREEN! :wub:

Bartram, as I said above, it really is stable and secure, but in that picture the joining of that side to the track was a little loose after smashing it over trees and such in my Prosperity MOC :laugh:

Ah, good question.

On a usual tank, one track will either go backwards or forwards depending on whether its a left or right turn, while the other stays locked.

On this tank, the heavy pylons on either side of the track can lift up. When the left one lifts up, weight is relieved, thus the tank turns right, and vice-versa.
