Hello all.

Thought I'd share my latest creation. A Scud missile Transporter/Erector/Launcher, designed in LDraw and now built in the brick (click on any of the pics to see more in the Flickr set):

Features:

- Spring-loaded & pneumatically-dampened missile raising mechanism.
- 4-Wheel steering (controlled from rear).
- Opening doors, roof sections, storage hatches (for BrickArms), and engine cover.
- Functioning rear stabilizers.
- Missile launch control (left side) and crew rest quarters (right side).

The Flickr set also contains a short video demonstrating the steering and missile mechanism. This has been my most complicated and ambitious LDraw design to date, but I'm very pleased with the end result. Comments, questions, and criticisms are welcome.

Wow, this is simply an amazing MOC SpaceMonkey! :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup: for you! The tan color scheme is perfectly consistent for a military vehicle, very effective functionality of the rocket launching mechanism, and just great details overall. This rocket laucher really look well together with your other equally-impressive military vehicle MOCs (like that chopper). Keep up with these masterful creations!

I rarely comments on military mocs but this Scud Missile Launcher simply takes my breath away. My jaws went wide open upon viewing your images. This is not a very common military vehicle being created in LEGO and I am glad that you have made this LDD design into actual bricks. Very impressive.  :thumbup:

Thanks for sharing.  :sweet:

p.s: The apache is deadly.  :wink:

I had already seen the "virtual" model, but the real one is just beautiful and very accurate to fit for the actual Mobile Scud-B Launcher.

Great MOC! I hope to see more of your awsome creations in the future :wink:

Nicely done!  You weren't inspired by the Command and Conquer video game, were you (your MOC looks just like one of the vehicles in the game)?

Nice, though the engine could be a little beefier.

Does the missile detach or is it fixed?

Thank you all for your positive comments and feedback! I realize military MOCs tend not to get that much attention around here, so I appreciate all responses.

Thank you very much! You're right that this vehicle hasn't been built often before. There are a couple of quality builds out there that helped inspire this model though, so I'd like to mention the excellent models of George Georgiou (G2) and Daniel Zayac.

Thanks, but no, I haven't played C&C. The model was based on reference pictures of the real world vehicle, though the most useful pics I found were actually of a beautifully detailed and painted plastic scale model.

Yeah, that's probably a fair call. I used all the space available, and I chose to make the engine similar in design to that in my Humvees, but a different design might have looked better. I didn't find any reference pictures of the real vehicle's engine bay to base it on though.

Yes! The missile certainly detaches! It sits on a small section of exposed technic axle at the base, and connects to the main body of the vehicle by a single stud when lowered. You can lift it straight out of the housing from the vertical position.
