Here is a simple enough military tank I made.

Over a year ago I purchased 6 concept tanks from LEGO Factory and this pic is basically the "pimped" version using some pieces I had that LEGO Factory didn't. The main idea was that the tank should be as cheap as possible. I believe the concept version was around 17 euro excl. p&p.

Hope you like.

I like it. The cannon is a little big IMO, but otherwise its a little chibi (right word?) version of a tank.

It is simple, but nice.
I agree the cannon is a bit too big.Also I think you should lower the cannon down a bit.
Also a tracks would be great addition.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I have taken on board the suggestions you made (as I agreed with them :) )

I've made two versions of a modified tank turret. The first 2 pics is just the barrel length shortened and lowered as suggested.

The last 2 pics is the tank with a new turret, lower with similar shortened barrel. Please let me know which you think is better. I'm veering for the second.

The second one is better. Still a little blocky though. You could add a headlight brick with a cheese slope in those gaps at the front of the turret to tidy it up a bit.

This looks great. Going to replicate it in the future maybe.
