I think it's about time I showed something off.

This is basically a vehicle I designed for use with a modular armoury (inspired by greylego's armoury for BrickArms):

I love this type of vehicle, so this is actually a very nice design to me. I like how the front is designed, and the display is pretty well done too :thumbup:

Here's the LXF file for reference.

One small difference that I couldn't replicate in LDD: I used two long pins to reinforce the front slopes, as follows...

I've started buying the parts for the exhibit display. The price of clear 1x1 tiles on BrickLink is enough to make your eyes water, but I suppose it's less ridiculous than on feeBay.

Great MOC. I love the trike. It looks very TRON like. I also really like the auto show display thing you've got :thumbup: :thumbup:

Thanks very much! There was some Tron inspiration with the trike design: I had wanted to create a cycle in a similar style but it didn't look good.

And danim, I want to see the mod :)
