Hy Guys!

I´ll start posting my personal armored division (Which belongs to my LEGO room  :tongue:  :hmpf_bad:  :classic: ) with a classic american World War Two Veichle: The M3 HalfTrack Personal Carrier. It is Halftrack because it has tracks on the back and wheels on the front. It may sound strange now, but it actually works well:

I saw these in your intro thread, I really like the brown tracks used on the truck, and it looks like it could fit right into an indiana jones set or if they ever made WAR sets, a militia for sure!

This is outstanding work, the shape looks very sleek. Do you have any other pictures such as interior etc. ?

@Tanotrooper

Sorry, I have more pics, but not of the interior. But actually it´s preety simple, there´s not much to see.

Hello!

That's really a great source for many nice building techniques! :classic: I like a pretty simple piece best, however. The use of the 1x2 tile with handle as a windscreen is the perfect choice here! :classic:

Cheers,

Wow, an amzing job mate, I love all the details you packed into it. The halftrack is one of my favorite trucks, and my grampa spent alot of time in them during the war, so I know you did an excellent job recreating it, well done, and keep bricking! :thumbup:
